How to automatically start applications from ggLeap

We specify commands that ggLeap will run on each client on selected trigger type event.

This can be used to copy network files, run local batch files, etc.

Full Path

  • The executable (or batch command if running in CMD) to run. You can copy full path of the file by shift+right click and choose Copy as path.


  • The command line arguments to pass to the command (optional). You can use %username% and %useruuid% variables that will be replaced with actual values during execution.

Working directory

  • The directory to set as the working directory when running the command (optional).

Run in cmd

  • To specify that the command should be executed as if typed into a CMD window.

Trigger type

  • App Launch - Command will be executed when we launch an app from ggLeap

  • User Login - Command will be executed when a user log in to ggLeap

  • Guest Login - Command will be executed when a guest has been remotely log in to ggLeap

  • Logout - Command will be executed when a user or guest logs out from ggLeap

  • Startup - Command will be executed when ggLeap boots

Long running

  • To specify that the command should be launched and left to run without waiting for it to finish.

Hide process

  • Hides the launched process when running.


Let's say for example we need to run Google Chrome when ggLeap starts up to show a website.

  • On the webadmin We can access this page by going to Settings > Client Configuration > Advanced

  • Click on Add command button

  • Enter the full path of Google Chrome in Full Path Field

  • Add Arguments in the Parameter Field, in this example, we want to show a document.

Select Trigger type: Startup

  • Long running is enabled so when chrome launches ggLeap will not wait for this app to close, and just continue the initialization.

  • In this example, we want it to be visible to the user, so hide process is disabled.
