Headless adminstudio host service?

Jump to solution

Hello,

The adminstudiohost.exe application must be running to start the API listening services.

Is it possible to start this application headless (daemonized) so interactive login is not required for the user context it must run under? 

Any recommendations on how to close the security gap by allowing this service to run without interactive login would be appreciated!

AdminStudio Host executable is placed in AdminStudio installation directory here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\AdminStudio\2019\Common\AdminStudioHost.exe

You could launch this exe directly to start the host process and there will be no need to login to the product. You may consider writing a small script to launch this exe, if you wish to automate it.

However, by 'API' if you mean AdminStudio PowerShell Cmdlets, then you don't have to worry about starting this host process. Running any of the cmdlets will automatically start the host process.

Thanks
