SecureCRT feature requests for command auto-completed base on history
Hi expert,
I would like to request the feature for command auto-completed base on history in command window.
The history commands in command window can save in a file corresponding to the session so we can modify the list of commands and can reuse for later.

I connect to session Ubuntu and run these commands:

1. sudo atp-get update
2. sudo atp install python
3. mkdir Python
4. mkdir Packages

Request feature:
- 4 commands above will be save in the history command file of session Ubuntu
- I can modify this history command file. And when I start SecureCRT and open the session Ubuntu, the history commands will be load from this history command file of this session. So I can reuse this history command list.
- In command window, when i type "mkdir + up/down" the history command
"3. mkdir Python, 4. mkdir Packages" will be appear (auto-completed). Or when I type "sudo atp install + up" the history command "2. sudo atp install python" will be appear.

Hi klc1802,

What version of SecureCRT are you using?

In v8.7 a Command Manager (much like Session Manager) was added. Have you had a chance to try it out?

It seems like that would meet many of the needs of your request.

Hi bgagnon,
I'm using the latest version 8.7.1.
I used Command Manager but it is not convenient.
It takes time to create the command, while the requested feature is not.

Hi klc1802,

OK, I was just playing devil's advocate since that already exists (vs new feature request). :)

I have created a feature request on your behalf in our product enhancement database for the ability for command window to save commands to file based on session. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to and include Feature Request - Forum Thread #14117 in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.
