d7x v19.6.17/18 Release Notes Mon, 17 Jun 2019 14:59:20 +0000 d7x v19.6.17/18 Release Notes

Added the ability to specify additional command line arguments (for launching d7x) when creating a d7x Remote Deployment Tool.  This will allow you for example to create a Remote Deployment Tool that puts d7x on the system and runs the maintenance tasks specified on the command line, then d7x could End Session optionally sending you the reports on what was done, space freed, etc.  Command line arguments for d7x were introduced last month, and the documentation on that is found here.

Update:  here is a video on the process..
