Copy RSA Token Script for Mac (Automator + Applescript)
View rsatoken.scpt
-- These are two separate Applescripts that can be executed within an automator workflow. Create a new workflow, create two “run applescript” actions, and paste them. This script will copy the RSA token, set your PIN, and paste it. If you don’t want the pin copied, remove the two lines with “pin” in the second applescript. There are instructions online about setting workflows as services which can be called via key commands.
-- You can set the “terminalapp” to whichever app you use (I use iTerm) and the “pin” to your PIN.
on run {input, parameters}
set terminalapp to "iTerm"
set pin to "6666"
