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.

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

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.

      Does anyone have an update script for making and removing snapshots in VMware?
      I would like to use it together with Windows update scripts to search and install updates.

      So I am really enjoying Pulseway, the systems are mostly well designed and work really well. They are simple and have no huge data entry overhead like other systems (Autotask).

      However, there are some improvements to be made in consistency through out the application. For example some text boxes for paragraphs of text allow you to tab into and out of them. Others don't some places where I click on a ticket opens the ticket in another separate popup window, others a new tab.
      The choices in made in some designs are really weird. For example, most save buttons are at the bottom of a dialog, a couple are at the top. That kind of change of process creates a headache when you just typed a novel on what was done and you miss the button and find the dialog is gone, and your masterpiece with it.
      I don't have the time right now to show/point out each of these that I have found, but I will be adding each of them here as soon as I can. I would like to think that the Dev's can find these faults themselves, but then you would think that if they knew those problems should have been taken care of already.

      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?
