  1. I just noticed this myself.. I assume they are listed as "others" in the pie chart at the top, but they are not shown in the list. EDIT: This applies to regular "Asset"-reports as well, and presumably others too.
  2. I have configured Email-notifications in our environment, and we receive notifications like these (see picture below) when we exceed the license limit. EDIT: Configured via Pulseway -> Server Admin -> Settings -> Email -> Server settings
  3. Hey guys! In case you're not already aware, I wanted to share a little trick that was recently added in Pulseway.. You can assign Site Key Codes to agent groups and let Pulseway automatically install Webroot on all clients that are added to that specific agent group. It has been working flawlessly for me and I don't have to copy/paste or worry about Webroot missing on any workstation or server. I also agree that fetching the key-codes from Webroot and show them (or at least show the webroot group name) in a drop down-menu would make it even easier to manage!
  4. I noticed last week that they recently added a "Request feature"-button on the What's new tab in Pulseway.. It seems to be a voting-system where customers can upvote features they want/need, add comments and the Pulseway staff can also add different tags depending on development status etc.
  5. I have installed a probe on a couple of computers+servers in our environment, and they only find clients within the same subnet. I'm able to ping devices in other subnets and access them with SMB-shares etc, but they are not found with a single probe.
  6. It's available in version 8.4.0 now! I had to open Pulseway preferences on the machine and go into System -> Remote Control and enable it first. It's also necessary give the PulsewayAgent three different permissions within the security and integrity section of the system settings. I've tried it a few times and it seems to be working fine. The screen updates seems a bit sluggish but that might be because the machine is on wifi, and it's also in beta which may explain things. I love the fact that we are also able to transfer files back and forth. @Paul - Do you
  7. This may not be entirely related, but I'd like the possibility to insert hostname in the email-notification that can be sent in an automation workflow.. Currently there is no easy way of knowing which computer the workflow was triggered on, except scrolling through the workflow history which might be a tedious task. I guess this could be achieved if we were able to insert custom fields like %pulseway.hostname% or whatever.
  8. If you expect an email- or push notification to be sent whenever the monitored process or service is stopped, then you also need to enable notifications on your Pulseway user account before they will be sent. Login to Pulseway and open Account -> Notifications and make sure that you have enabled the corresponding notification level on either the organization or it's sub sites / groups. Also make sure either/or Email and Push are enabled at the top of that screen.
  9. I don't know why they set it up this way, but you need to enable the corresponding notification in order for the workflows to be triggered. I had the same issue with a workflow that was supposed to trigger when a system is back online, and I had to enable the policy setting: "Send a notification when the computer is offline" in order for it to work. I would imagine that you also need to enable "Send a notification when a user logs in with priority x" in order for your second workflow to work properly. Honestly, I think this implementation is stupid.. I like the idea of having workf
  10. I'm distributing all of our printers via GPO instead.. That's been working flawlessly, so I don't see the needs of using PowerShell.
  11. Maybe this is helpful.. I ran this script in Pulseway to remove Solarwinds N-Central RMM a while back. It won't uninstall all the software solutions you mention, but it might put you one step closer if you replace some of the code with updated uninstall strings etc. $installstate = Get-Item -path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{940B905A-92ED-4646-B38B-321F80873C37}' -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue if ($installstate -eq $null) { Write-Host 'N-Central Uninstall Registry, was not found and might already be removed.' exit
  12. Completely agree! Allthough the timeout can be lengthened now, it's still a big issue that we can't whitelist our browser. I turned on 2FA recently and I have to login to the WebGUI and Remote Control approximately twice a day. Extending the timeout even further doesn't seem like a good workaround. Also, please consider SAML-support, as mentioned earlier in this thread. We have ADFS and Smart Cards in our environment which we could then use to login to Pulseway.
  13. According to the Pulseway Roadmap, Remote Control will be integrated within the WebGUI instead of a stand alone app. It is estimated to be released during Q2 2020. Hopefully we'll see that update arriving soon, and I imagine that it will become much easier to initiate chat messages and then remote control the user when everything is managed from the same place.
  14. Unfortunately, Pulseway doesn't support Swedish characters within scripts at this point in time (I'd love to see that in the future though). However there's a way around it.. You can use ASCII-code instead of letters. I did this with a script recently in order to create a scheduled task, and it's working fine. Replace the following: $group = "Administrators" With: $group = [char]065+[char]100+[char]109+[char]105+[char]110+[char]105+[char]115+[char]116+[char]114+[char]097+[char]116+[char]246+[char]114+[char]101+[char]114 (The ASCII code above says Admin
  15. Hi there! I think the workflows introduced in Pulseway 8.0 are powerful but not necessarily intuitive and easy to use.. My main concern is that you are only able to have one instance of a certain trigger enabled at once. For example "Service Stopped". I get the idea that you want to collect everything in one schematic, but it becomes problematic because you can't create branches directly under the trigger. Instead you have to add something like a condition first, and then create branches depending on the outcome, and then add multiple scenarios depending on what needs to be accomp
  16. I'm getting suspicious about the keyboard-app being the culprit in this case, but I'm not an expert. I would at least consider using another keyboard app for a while to see if it behaves differently. I'm using Gboard on my OnePlus device and it works well with Pulseway Remote Control, another keyboard to consider might be "Switftkey" among others.
  17. You can run the following script on a domain controller to see all enabled users using Powershell in Pulseway: get-aduser -filter * -properties samaccountname, enabled, givenname, surname | where {$_.enabled -eq $true} | select -property samaccountname, givenname, surname | sort-object -property samaccountname The output will be all users in AD where the enabled-attribute is set to true (ie all active users), and they will be presented in alphabetical order sorted by their username.
  18. Remember to not only enable workstations to generate notifications, but also enable the account/s to receive them as well. Have a look under Account -> Notifications and make sure that they are enabled there too.
  19. Hi there! I often find myself running scripts on our machines in a way that demands follow up/verification, so I thought it would be a good thing to be able to add scripts to a queue in Pulseway to have them run at a later point in time when a system becomes available online. Currently I tend to keep a document with all the machines listed, so I can mark them one by one in order to know which ones are done, and which ones remain. This is kinda tedious because our machines (especially laptops) tend to be offline for longer periods of time, and I have to follow up on a daily basis u
  20. Thanks for your reply! I can't find any misconfiguration regarding the group policies. This is a behavior that'll happen on our workstations from time to time. I can always remote control the clients, but the issue is that I sometimes have to wait one minute because the notification isn't shown (I know this because I'm talking to the end user via phone simultaneously). Have a look at the following pictures to see how I've configured it all:
  21. This functionality is not available in the Pulseway Remote Control software at the moment. As a pulseway user, I can't determine whether I want this functionality or not. Because I can see the benefits but I also see them as security concerns at the same time (if the account were to be compromised).
  22. I appreciate you sharing the script, but please note that the password is stored unencrypted and visible to others in both the script itself (if you edit the code) and in the registry. You might want to consider using the Autologin-tool from Mark over at Windows SysInternals instead. It's a great tool to add autologin to kiosk-computers and such, while keeping the credentials safe since they will be encrypted. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autologon To turn it back off, you simply run the tool again and disable the autologin feature. In other situati
  23. @Greg Candido It's possible to run Pulseway with User Impersonation, and by doing so you should be able to access network resources because it's essentially running as a user instead of system. I did the following in our setup: Create an account for the Pulseway service in active directory. Give the new account share permissions and file permissions on the directory where the MSI-file resides. Open Pulseway Manager on one of the clients. Open Settings -> Runtime and check the "Enable Powershell User Impersonation". Enter the credentials create
  24. I'm currently running Pulseway OnPrem (7.0.0 build 120 release 283), and I'm using Pulseway Remote Control (6.6.3). The issue I have experienced is that the remote control notification doesn't always show up on the client when I attempt to remote control a session. We have 150+ computers in our environment and sometimes it works fine, and sometimes it doesn't, and the different behavior can even occur on the same machine from time to time. Pulseway is configured to automatically allow the remote session if no one accept (or deny) the request within a minute, and I have notice
  25. @Chris Nah, that's not at all what I'm after, but thanks.. I want to use the Pulseway message feature ad-hoc, for example when a critical system goes down and I need to immediately notify all my users that I'm aware and that we are working on a solution.
