Right-Click in Deadline

Postby JokerMartini » Tue Sep 12, 2017 9:10 pm

I've been searching around the docs and looking for some information on how to create a custom Right-Click menu script for Deadline.
My goal is to make it so a user can right-click on a single or multiple jobs in Deadline and using the ShotgunTaskID stored in the JobExtraInfo0 slot to launch chrome and navigate the user to the Task in shotgun.

Oh, we've got an internal dev script that'll get you pretty close.

There's two parts: One, you need to drop the script into "[repo]\custom\scripts\Jobs". The next is you need to enable it for multiple jobs in the "Configure Script Menus" section of the "Tools" menu:

Here's the script with a bunch of secret sauce removed:

    query_fields = {'text': 'hi there!'}
    encoded_query = urllib.urlencode(query_fields)

Thank you so much. I ended up writing one as well that is similar.
