Dashboard requires administrative privileges

Recommended Posts

Hi.

When running Dashboard as an ordinary user, it asks for the password of an administrator.

Are there anyway we can let the dashboard be executed as a normal user, so we don't have to leave an unattended computer been loged in as administrator?

 

Br,

Martin

Hi Martin,

We require administrative access so that we can write to the Program Files directory (to install updates). There is no way for you to run Pulseway Dashboard without administrative rights without breaking some functionality.

Why not move the update function to a seperate windows service? Would make our life much easier.

We also require administrative privileges for editing the registry settings and updating the remote desktop libraries. We will consider requesting user elevation when administrative rights are required.

This isn't a good way of doing things - we're trying to lock down general user access here so that helpdesk people don't need admin rights on their own PCs.

This is a two year old thread, and there appears to have been no movement or action from Pulseway in that time.

Happy to have people need to login as admin when there is an update, but Pulseway should not be demanding admin access just to run a dashboard - that is a security vulnerability.

 

Thanks

Eric

      I want a program to always run on my computer. Is there a script that forces a program to restart after its process has been stopped?
      Thanks in advance

      Hello,
      I am trying to automate our on-boarding process as much as possible.
      Is there a way to upload software to Pulseway (an A/V Application in this case) so we can trigger a script to install it on endpoints during on boarding?
      Thank you,

      It would be nice if there was a view similar to the Time Sheet, Time Entries list but that showed the start and end time of each entry and only showed the time entries for the tickets that had entries for the week. Autotask had this and it was a great way to help remind me of what I did in the "gaps" between ticket time entries. Having all open tickets in my queue just clutters the current view. Maybe have a button on that view that toggles between all the open tickets and no time entries showing and having only time entries showing with start and end times. It looks like this:

      Sometimes i am creating a ticket after i have already started work on the problem. Not ideal I know, but it happens. It happens enough that i would really like to be able to put in the time i started working on the problem and then hit the now choice and then hit a "Add time" or start tracking time button that continues to update the "now" or "end" field. that way i dont have to remember to hit that now button when i am done and hit the save button.
