Struggling to remember the exact command to set file permissions in SSH? Having trouble recalling the steps to update a package? Stress no more with Atera's AI Command Generator. Designed to simplify your interaction with various consoles, this feature is your smart companion in the world of Command Line Interfaces (CLI).
With the AI Command Generator, you no longer need to memorize a multitude of commands or keep a cheat sheet handy. Whether it's creating new directories, managing users, modifying file permissions, updating packages, or even more complex tasks, you just need to describe your objective in plain language. The AI Command Generator does the heavy lifting for you and translates your description into an accurate command for your chosen terminal - be it Command Prompt, Powershell, Mac terminal, Linux terminal, or SSH.
How does it work?
The AI command generator is a user-friendly tool that generates relevant commands based on your input. All you need to do is describe the function of the command you want to execute, and the AI command generator will take care of the rest. Upon clicking the 'Generate' button, the command is automatically pasted into your selected terminal.
While the command is being generated, the terminal and the 'Generate' button will be disabled, providing a loading state to prevent interruptions and ensure command accuracy.
The AI command generator can create commands for the following terminals: CMD, Powershell, Mac terminal, Linux terminal, and SSH.
Note: Please be aware that the AI command generator module is unavailable on the Agent page.
