Set an environnent variable from a label

Hello,

Is it possible to set an environment variable from a label? Our classroom are tag like this ens.<city>.<building>.<room> and it could be useful for us to set an environment variable like %KACE_LABEL%. Does any of you ever did it and how ?

Thank you.

I finaly found how to did it.

  • First you need a mysql client. I took this one https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/file/?id=471341
  • Extract it take copy the mysql.exe and mysql_config_editor.exe to your working directory.
  • With mysql_config_editor.exe create a crypted login file :
    mysql_config_editor.exe set --login-path=k1000 --host=k1000.kbox.com --user=R1 --password

    Now you have you credentials in %APPDATA%\MySQL\.mylogin.cnf

  • copy the .mylogin.cnf file in your working directory
  • now you can run this batch script :
    :: setting variables
    SET MY="%~dp0mysql.exe"
    SET SQL="%TEMP%\KACE_LABEL.sql"

    :: Building the query
    :: you can change the "Where" part to adapt it to your needs
    ECHO SELECT LABEL.NAME FROM LABEL LEFT JOIN MACHINE_LABEL_JT ON LABEL.ID = MACHINE_LABEL_JT.LABEL_ID LEFT JOIN MACHINE ON MACHINE_LABEL_JT.MACHINE_ID = MACHINE.ID WHERE MACHINE.NAME = '%COMPUTERNAME%' AND LABEL.NAME like '%%.%%.%%.%%' AND LABEL.NAME NOT LIKE '%%all'; > %SQL%

    :: Copying the credential file to the current user roaming profile
    MD "%APPDATA%\Mysql"
    copy "%~dp0.mylogin.cnf" "%APPDATA%\Mysql"

    :: running the query and store the label in
    %TEMP%\LABEL.TXT
    %MY% --login-path=k1000 -s -D ORG1 < %SQL% > %TEMP%\LABEL.TXT

    :: Setting the environement variable
    SETX KACE_LABEL /F %TEMP%\LABEL.TXT /A 0,0 /M

    :: deletion of the credential file
    rmdir /q /s "%APPDATA%\Mysql"
That's it !

You could definitely do this with a script, but you might need a script per label.
