self service command to mount share as current user?

Honored Contributor

I am looking at the jamf mount command and I want it to map a certain share via self service as the current logged in user. However, I want it to wait for the user to input their password, then once it mounts the share I want it to launch an application that has to read a db file off of that share. I would like to do this in all one fell swoop the user just clicks on the policy, inputs their password and they are done.

Also, is there a way to do secure send commands with the send command option in the JSS for policies? I would like to use that function more but not have it leave traces in the log files of what commands I send. Is that possible?

I managed to create an apple script with the share path and just run it as a script via policy.
