New Application has been installed/uninstalled tweak

Recommended Posts

Hi,  To avoid unnecessary interruptions would you please tweak the application installed/monitoring as follows:

1. Track a history of application changes: name and date installed/uninstalled.

2. Alert wildcard exclude (ex. Application Name: "Mozilla Firefox*") such that when Mozilla Firefox 51.0.1 (x64 en-US) or it latest version are installed and uninstalled no alert is sent.

The history is useful to know what application changes occurred recently and I'm also looking for alerts on non-standard applications.  The later I do want a notification.

Last year an international version of Adobe caused a black screen when logging into the desktop and because of the alert when the client called I was able to resolve the issue right away.  The goal would be to get notifications on applications not in the exclude list and the ability to see all application changes in case one does cause and issue.

Thanks for your attention.

BUMP: To clarify a bit further.  When tracking of installing and uninstalling application is set it creates a load of alerts for what are, for the most part, expected upgrades of applications such as Browsers, PDF Readers, Flashplayer, Java for example.  I do not need an alert for those but I do need history in case there is an issue and I need to see what changed recently.  However, what I do need an alert for are not so common changes.  So this request is the ability to exclude certain applications from the alert but log only.

Hi,

newbie question:

is there meanwhile a way to exclude the "new applications alert" for specific applications like the question above?

for example firefox install the update without admin rights, so when a firefox update is released we get many alerts.

It would also nice for other applications.

Thank you

Hi,

Unfortunately this functionality is not supported at this time, however I will put this forward as the feature request, therefore our developers will consider the possibility to introduce this functionality into the future release.

      I've seen some old posts about this and solutions in older versions that have since been removed. However, I don't see the settings or options in this iteration as of today.
      We monitor some generic services, ie Apache, and other proprietary services that are critical to our program running. At times they hiccup or run into an issue where they fail to start or stop. At this point we would want Pulseway to not only send a notification but also attempt to restart the service(s).
      Any way to accomplish this or any roadmap on getting that feature rolled in?

      I am curious to know why 3rd party patch mgmt. is an additional paid feature. Before I would get notified for like Adobe Reader needed an update, know I have to pay additional to get this notification?
      What else within the features we already get will be removed to a "module" that we have to pay additional for? I only oversee around 60 endpoints, so I am not a big player, but there are issues now that are making me look and trial other RMM solutions. 
      Today I logged into my dash-panel as I do everyday M-F only to be greeted with 53 notifications for critical updates for Windows. Going into to the systems one by one, I quickly realized that something is not right. When viewing the systems, it clearly stated there were updates for Windows needed, but going to the actual systems available updates, I see "No updates found". Is Windows itself considered a 3rd party now?

      It would be great if we could make Asset Info available when devices are offline.
      For example if a remote users PC fails to function and is still under warranty trying to explain to a user where to find the device Make, Model and serial number to log a warranty case is not always easy.
      If the asset information was available when the device was off line then it would make this process mach easier as it contains all the information required
      Cheers

      I have used the rest api Publish and Notify to make a system in Pulseway.
      When I run the api the system will be updated and there will be notifications of the devices I monitor. (if their are up or down)
      But if I run the script I get alle the notifications that I don't want because the state isn't change of the devices.
      Is there a php script that makes the Pulseway Notifiy api remember the state of the last send notification so there will only be send a notification if the state is change since the last send notification?
      Kind regards,
      Mitch

      Hello,
      I would like a feature where when I remote into a users computer, you are given the option to block the user from inputting any information and or block them from viewing what you are doing.
