Automation playbooks are designed to be executed by triggers or manual execution. There are many use cases for manual execution, including testing a new playbook to ensure it works as expected and executing certain remediation playbooks that should only be triggered by your team.
Playbooks can be executed against any of the detections, endpoints, and endpoint users in Red Canary.
