Our business operates with hundreds of products in our inventory and going through all of them and manually entering them into PSA was not exactly an option, and without an import function, I had to develop an import tool that uses the PSA API. I developed it originally with hard coded parameters, in a single class, but went back today and improved it for distribution to everyone here.
To view the source code, check out the repository at https://bitbucket.org/garrettbromley/pulseway-product-import/
To download the executable files, download PulsewayProductImport-v2.zip at https://bitbucket.org/garrettbromley/pulseway-product-import/downloads/
Download the Excel template and add your inventory into that sheet. I personally had a Microsoft Surface that I walked around with and inventoried everything. To change the categories/sub categories, open the "Back End" tab on the sheet and edit those tables to your liking The only column that isn't required is the UPC Code. Run the Import Tool Input your PSA credentials Type in the full directory to the excel sheet (make sure its closed before running it) Confirm the number of detected items Watch the tool work Make a stock adjustment with the levels of stock for each item (this unfortunately cannot be automated) It will notify you how many items have successfully been imported and which ones failed (if any) and why.
Please let me know if you have any questions! I will post changelogs if any updates are made.
Does anyone have or know how to create a script to disable Password Protected Sharing in Windows 10. This has become a real issue for me as every time Microsoft has an update the default is "Turn on password protected sharing" which forces me to do a lot of tweaks.
Thanks in advance,

A bit of introduction:
I'm a happy user of Pulseway Manager. I use Pulseway Manager Enterprise (but for this topic it doesn't really matter). I manage quite large deployment with 250 Pulseway monitored machines. Someone else installed (via GPO) and did some basic setup. After running basic setup for a while, someone else changed some settings and tweaked it a bit. Finally ... again someone said lets change things around...
This got me to this point... I have to change:
For all servers CPU > 90% for 30minutes > CRITICAL RAM
RAM on 1 HOST – 5% for 30 min > CRITICAL Disable Low RAM on VM's Disable Low RAM in Azure Enable storage for any drives the servers have
20GB free > ELEVATED 10GB free > CRITICAL While I could just assign some poor guy to go thru 60+ servers and change things, make sure those are correct I decided it's time to introduce PowerShell for those Active Directory admins out there... while I know there is Pulseway GPO but it's kind of limited, and doesn't give much flexibility (for example drive monitoring). It also overwrites settings set locally without Pulseway actually showing them on Client.
After playing a bit... I managed to write:

I don't want to spend time on it if there's no one else needing this
I've published it on github
But its also published in PowerShellGallery which allows you to install it ....
Use the commands.. Keep in mind I've not spent a ton of time on it. There are bugs, some things are not checked.. but it does work ;-)
We currently use TeamViewer as our remote support software and like to have Pulseway as a backup to that, but one thing that we like to do is record our sessions for both accountability and to have the ability to reference something we have done in the past to resolve an issue or to double check one's work.
If Pulseway is to compete with this, I would like to see the ability to record these sessions.
I have several non-critical virtual servers that do not start automatically with our Hyper-V cluster that I want to start manually once I know all critical servers are back on line after a cluster reboot, but these do not show up in the list of VMs for each host on either the Android or PC app.
I only see the 'running' VMs.
Am I missing something in config of Pulseway Manager (v5.4.7) other than just enabling 'Monitor and Manage Hyper-V'?
According to this page https://www.pulseway.com/hyperv I should see all VMs configured on a host, and be able to do lots of other things.
