  1. I might have misunderstood the whole thing here, but if you want to move a client between Organization, sites or groups as Chris mentioned, then the client needs to have Pulseway agent 6.0 or later, which is where this functionality was first introduced.. I've had a couple of devices myself that I couldn't move because of this, but it went fine after booting them up and allowing pulseway to update to a newer version.
  2. Hi all! I'm frequently using the "Send Message" feature that Pulseway provide, and it's usually when I need to quickly distribute information to our employees. I've found that you can send messages to a specific client, or a specific group (both of which are great). But it would be even better if we can select multiple groups to send the message to as a third option. It's not a big deal to copy the message and go into each group and send the message from there, but it's more of a convenience thing. Please consider it at least! // Martin
  3. Yep, this is great! I suppose some information can be extracted from a report, but having the information stored on each system in the GUI would improve the daily workflow.
  4. Hey guys! I have a couple of things that would greatly improve my own workflow and also improving the remote desktop client in general, so I decided to collect them all in one thread. Please share your thoughts. 1. Adding sections for tags, notes and last logged on user in the Remote Desktop Client GUI. This is illustrated in the uploaded picture within this thread. 2. Transfer files. Both ways would be great, but at least being able to transfer from host to client at first. 3. Portable remote sessions. What I mean by this is to have a link that a user can go to (for example https://pulseway.yourdomain.com/help), and then download a portable version of Pulseway Remote. The user would then let me know of a PIN-code that can be entered within my Remote Desktop Client to remote control his/her desktop. 4. We are currently able to toggle the ask for confirmation-behavior, and I have configured a 1 minute timeout before it is automatically allowed. However, my suggestion is that the timeout won't apply when the "Login"-session is the only session available. // Martin
  5. I didn't like this either, but I created a GPO to remove the shortcuts instead.. It seems to be working well.
  6. Hey guys! I think Pulseway would be even better if the alerts would clear themselves when resolved.. For example, a server with available windows updates will reboot during our custom maintenance window but the alert will stay until I manually clear it in either the webGUI or the Dashboard app. Those kind of alerts along with cpu spikes, short memory outtage etc are more like "white noise" in the monitoring for me and I'd like to focus on alerts where a proper action is needed in order to resolve. To build further on this idea an even better improvement would be to tie alerts to scripts, so if Alert X is triggered, script Y will run and Alert X will be cleared. Let me know what you think! // Martin
  7. At least I think it's exciting that the new version is being rolled out =). Looking forward to this (apart from the issue mentioned in this thread).. Any news when the update may get distributed to us who doesn't use SaaS?
  8. Hi Paul! I thought I'd ask in this thread, rather than creating a new one.. Is it possible to set which email a support request should be sent to? I'm asking because I would like to receive all support requests on a dedicated email address for that specific purpose (while the notifications are sent to another dedicated address). But it seems like the support request will be sent to the email address of the account which is connected to the Pulseway Manager on that specific client. A working solution could be if those emails are sent to an address based on what is specified in the "Company email"-section at the "Support Info Details"-tab.
  9. Looking forward to the next release of Pulseway then Sharing scripts, group policies etc are also settings that I'd like to be shared between accounts.
  10. Thanks Paul! That sounds promising.. Please let us know when the REST API has been adjusted accordingly, so we can test it.
  11. No problem! I'm glad it was useful for you. My installations through Pulseway have gone smoothly, so I don't know about the failures you've gotten. In my case, it became more manageable to trigger the installation via script, rather than via Pulseway. Especially since clients imported with other pulseway-users aren't shown in the webGUI (for those, you have to login to the specific account and install from there, and that method isn't going to cut it). I wish that we find a way to register the integration between Webroot and Pulseway after running the script, it will save us some more time and make the deployment easier. There are some registry entries at HKLM:\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\Addons\2 that seems related to Webroot. I saw the key code written there, in plain text. It was under the subkey "LicenseHash" on a couple of our workstations, and they were installed via the Pulseway WebGUI if I'm not mistaken.. However, the sideloading-operation leaves the same subkey blank. There is also a second subkey, called "InstallationId" that I'm curious about. The "LicenseHash" could be easily populated with the correct key code, but I'm more worried about the "InstallationId", as it contains a long hash value generated from somewhere, somehow. I'm hoping that the Pulseway-developers can contribute with some useful information here.. =)
  12. Hey.. I've been moving clients between groups with the script below, and it might be useful to some of you.. If you need to do it in a bigger batch, then maybe you can create a scope and attach the script to a task that has the scope connected to it. Also, tags could be used to further narrow down the targeted clients. #Replace 'NewGroupNameHere' with whatever group name you would like to use. #Example, $NewGroup = 'Servers' $PreviousGroup = Get-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\" -Name GroupName $NewGroup = 'NewGroupNameHere' Write-Host 'The Pulseway group is currently set to:' $PreviousGroup.GroupName Write-Host 'The Pulseway group will be set to:' $NewGroup Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\" -Name GroupName -Value $NewGroup Write-Host 'Verifying...' $Verification = Get-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\" -Name GroupName Write-Host 'The Pulseway group was successfully changed to' $Verification.GroupName
  13. Hey guys! I've been testing the Webroot trial recently and it has been working fine, but I found something where there is room for improvement.. The Webroot installation can be done through Pulseway already, and everything that's needed is basically the Key Code assigning the client to the corresponding Webroot dashboard. This method works fine, but my idea is to automate as many of these tasks as possible, hence Powershell come in to play. Webroot have published a document with other deployment methods, such as GPO or MSI, and I'm mostly interested in the latter. So I created a script for the installation task, which is working fine in itself. But I also found out that the client is shown as "Not installed" in Pulseway afterwards. I spoke with support representatives from Pulseway about this, and a workaround is to use the "Install"-button in Pulseway to create the connection. They told me that the software won't be reinstalled by doing this, but simply associate the agent with Pulseway.. It got me thinking.. There should be a way to trigger this "Install"-function elsewhere, and a smooth solution would be if it could be triggered from the same script as the installation. Maybe something is written in the registry (client side), that we could use? Does anyone else have a solution on how to perform such a task? Webroot deployment documentation (Command line options and other install methods) Here is the script that I've got so far, feel free to use it, if you find it useful! #Replace "KEYCODEHERE" at the arguments-variable with the Key Code shown in your own Webroot Dashboard. #Example: 'GUILIC=XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX CMDLINE=SME,quiet /qn /l*v install.log' $tempdir = get-item -Path "$Env:SystemDrive\Temp" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue if ($tempdir -eq $null) { New-Item -ItemType "Directory" -Path "$Env:SystemDrive\Temp" Write-Host 'Creating Temp-Dir.' } $Downloadurl = 'http://anywhere.webrootcloudav.com/zerol/wsasme.msi' Write-Host 'Downloading executable to local storage.' $Executable = "$Env:SystemDrive\Temp\wsasme.msi" $Arguments = 'GUILIC=KEYCODEHERE CMDLINE=SME,quiet /qn /l*v install.log' $wc = New-Object System.Net.WebClient $wc.DownloadFile($Downloadurl, $Executable) Start-Process $Executable -ArgumentList $Arguments -Wait Write-Host 'Installing' Remove-Item -Path $Executable Write-Host 'Cleaning up locally stored data.' Start-Sleep -s 30 $program = 'Webroot' Write-Host 'Verifying installation...' $32bit = ((Get-ChildItem "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall") | Where-Object { $_.GetValue( "DisplayName" ) -like "*$program*" } ).Length -gt 0; $64bit = ((Get-ChildItem "HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall") | Where-Object { $_.GetValue( "DisplayName" ) -like "*$program*" } ).Length -gt 0; if ($32bit -eq $True -or $64bit -eq $True) { Write-Host "$program has been successfully installed." } // Martin Johansson
