Can UEM run tasks as administrator?

We are trying to add a security group using UEM but are unable to get the task to run as a local administrator that has rights. Currently we are using the "net localgroup administrators /add" command in a batch file. Everything works fine if run manually but UEM seems to only run the .bat file as the local user. Is there any way to force UEM to use admin credentials?

Unfortunately it is not possible to run tasks(like a batch file) as administrator, for this you will need privilege elevation.

The only thing you can do at the moment, is to run a batch file which has admin credentials in it, but this is not very secure.
