This script will download the small online installer, generate the silent install cfg file and run the installer. The timer near the end is set for 3 minutes as it has to download the full installer first and Java takes a while to install anyway. If you want to get the latest version just go to https://java.com/en/download/win10.jsp and copy the link from the button that says "Agree and start free download". Then past this link into the $source variable. I find that this installer works on both windows 7 and windows 10.

I can't seem to update any agent settings remotely anymore. I normally use Dashboard to edit an agent's config and change the computer name as needed (hire/term). As of about a week ago, this no longer works. The agent config screen comes up normally after right clicking in Dashboard and choosing edit computer settings, lets me make my changes, and then gives the standard "this may take 30 secs" message when saving. But nothing happens, no update. If I go back in and look at the settings again the modifications are not there. This also happens with Pulseway Manager under Manage Systems. I don't see a way to update agent settings using the WebApp.
I have not updated my Dashboard to my knowledge, still using 5.1.2. Agent version is 5.4. Doesn't seem to matter what OS the computer is running, happening with all PCs And i've installed the Dashboard on a different PC, same results.
The only way to make the changes stick is to login to the computer in question and make the changes on the agent locally.
This might be related to this topic, but over the last week I'm seeing notifications for all updates, not just Windows Defender.
If I delete the notification it comes back again, checking the server shows "26 optional updates are available" (note "optional")
Pulseway setting: Notifications > Status > "Send a notification when critical or important updates are available with priority" = Automatic
My notification on my mobile is reading "26 important updates are available..."
Clicking into the mobile app and checking the Windows Updates it's reporting them as "important" when they aren't.
For example the server itself lists KB2386667 as recommended but it's listed as important in Pulseway.

I've been setting up contracts in the system for MSP (recurring), time & materials etc. The setup of the contract seems reasonably straight forward, but they never show up for selection in the ticket entry screen. The drop down in the ticket screen is always empty.
I've reviewed the docs multiple times and can't see what I've missed. I sent a message to support, but haven't heard back from them. In the meantime, all of my ticket activity is generating lots of billable time entries that it looks like I will have to manually adjust out - it will be a pile of work.
