How to enable script execution in SqlBak

SqlBak enables the execution of SQL scripts and Windows batch scripts within backup or maintenance jobs. By default, script execution is disabled for security reasons. When attempting to add a script to a job, an error message may appear:

Execution of <script type> is prohibited. To allow script execution, please enable the corresponding option in the SqlBak App security settings.

Below are step-by-step instructions for enabling script execution:

  1. Launch the SqlBak app
  2. Click the gear icon located at the upper right corner to access the application’s settings dialog
  3. In the settings window, navigate to the “Security” tab
  4. Select the appropriate options to allow execution of SQL scripts, Windows batch scripts, or both
  5. Save the settings

Following these steps will enable the successful execution of scripts within backup or maintenance jobs in SqlBak.
