Value channel for SSH script sensor isn't created



I created an SSH script sensor recently and a channel for the script's return value was created then.

Now I'm creating an SSH script sensor on another device but it's not creating a channel for the value.

The difference between those two is that the former device runs SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2 and the latter runs CentOS Linux 8. Can this be the reason? But why? SSH is SSH and Bash is Bash.

Hi there,

Did you try to run the script manually on your target device? Was there any difference in the output?

Kind regards
