Poor technical support from Pulseway?

Hello,

We are long-term Pulseway customers but lately the Pulseway client has developed a bug and continuously uses up to 20%+ CPU utilisation.

We logged this with Pulseway on the 4th of July this year but they have been completely ignoring the ticket. I regularly reply to the email thread for an update (at least once a week) but I am ignored. The only time I had a meaningful response was when I threatened to cancel our subscription. This was short lived and now I am back to being ignored with no status updates on my ticket.

We like the product but we have a handful of servers with this bug and I am simply installing other monitoring products on them. Today I have sent my usual email to Pulseway support asking for a status update on my ticket but I'm certain I'll get nothing back...

The next step will then be to install a better monitoring product like Infradog and to write the same post on Spiceworks so people know that Pulseway doesn't offer good technical support.

Hi Ian,

I'm sorry to hear that your ticket is not yet resolved. I've familiarized myself with your case and it appears that it is currently with the development team. Unfortunately the issue is more complex and there's no immediate solution on it. My colleagues from the support team can only provide status updates if they get any from the development team and in this case there hasn't been any progress made.

Rest assured that we are looking into the issue.

Hi Paul,

I understand that this may be a complex issue but I need it resolved. A member of your support team contacted me just after I posted this and said they would contact the developers for an update.

I haven't heard anything back yet so I can only assume that no progress has been made or the support team hasn't contacted the developers. 

I can't continue on with this situation I need a timescale for the fix at the very least, It seems like the problem has just been shelved.

Thank you,

Hi Ian,

Rest assured that this issue is not shelved but there's been no progress made on it simply because it's scheduled to be fixed in the next Windows agent maintenance release (it's on the top of the priority todo list). I'll post an update as soon as I have a beta build so you can install it on your affected system.

IT never sleeps :lol:. I've found your inquiry and asked around what's the hold up. Unless everyone took your advice and went for pints someone should reach out to you soon.

      After receiving a verification on my phone I get this nasty gram.
       
      So far:
      .Net 4.0 install was blocked because a later version was already installed. So I don't think it is a .net version issue.
      Any help would be appreciated.

      I blocked out the server name to keep it anonymous. Also, please ignore the localhost:8443 page. It is irrelevant as far as I know.

      I would really like to see an outlook add-in that can be pushed through office 365 to all users that would allow them to submit tickets with drop down menus for ticket type, sub-type, priority and description.

      A number of folks have requested the ability to manage bitlocker with Pulseway, so I thought I would share how I am doing this with Powershell scripts and Pulseway's custom fields feature. 
      First, you will need to create a custom fields in Pulseway (Automation Tab --> Custom Fields). This fields should be a text variable that has the system context. I personally have 3, BitlockerKey, Protection Status (On/Off), and BitLockerVolumeStatus. BitlockerKey is probably the one most people will care about. . 

      After Configuring the Custom fields, you will then need to create your PowerShell script. Notice you have inputs and outputs. You will want to click New for output. Name it what you wish, ensure it is a text variable type, and then turn on "set Custom Field Value"

      Now we toggle the flag for it being a windows powershell script. You should see in the top that it has created a comment #outputs with your defined output variable assigned the default value you gave it. 
      Now we have our script: Update as of 4/18/2021, script now tracks 3 custom fields and will account for if a drive is encrypted but protection is off and no protectors have been added yet.
      # Outputs $ProtectionStatus = "na" $recoveryKey = "na" $VolumeStatus = "na" #region functions function Start-BitlockerEnable { Enable-BitLocker -MountPoint c: -EncryptionMethod XtsAes128 -UsedSpaceOnly -TpmProtector $today = Get-Date $scheduledtime = $today.Date.AddHours(23) [int]$SecondsToMidnight = ($scheduledtime - $today).TotalSeconds shutdown /r /t $SecondsToMidnight msg.exe * "Bitlocker Encryption has been enabled. A reboot is needed before the encryption will apply and has been scheduled for $scheduledtime local time. You can reboot before this if you prefer." #start-sleep 90 #msg.exe * "This Computer will reboot in 30 seconds to bitlocker Encryption" #start-sleep 30 #Restart-computer -force } #endregion functions #region execution $BitLockerStatus = Get-BitLockerVolume -MountPoint c: if ((Get-Tpm).tpmpresent -eq $true) { #If Volume is in the process of encrypting or decrypting the Volume status will not say fully. Don't make changes when it changes if (($BitLockerStatus.ProtectionStatus -match 'off') -and ($bitlockerstatus.VolumeStatus -notmatch 'progress')) { #NoBitlocker is enabled so run it. if ($BitLockerStatus.VolumeStatus -eq 'FullyDecrypted') { $recoverykey = $BitLockerStatus.KeyProtector | Select-Object -ExpandProperty recoverypassword if(!($recoveryKey)){ Add-BitLockerKeyProtector -MountPoint c: -RecoveryPasswordProtector } $newStatus = Get-BitLockerVolume -MountPoint c: $recoverykey = $newStatus.KeyProtector | Select-Object -ExpandProperty recoverypassword Start-Process -FilePath "$env:PWY_HOME\CLI.exe" -ArgumentList ("setVariable recoverykey ""$recoverykey""") -Wait if ($newStatus.KeyProtector -match 'Recovery') { Start-BitlockerEnable } } #Bitlocker must be Partially enabled where drive is fully encrypted, but protection is off and no protectors exist. #Typically this is using xtsAES128 so you may wish to disable-bitlocker, then re-enable it with your protectors and prefered encryption level. else{ Disable-BitLocker -MountPoint 'c:' $decryptInProgress = $true While($decryptInProgress -eq $true){ $decryptstatus = Get-BitLockerVolume -MountPoint 'c:' if($decryptstatus.VolumeStatus -match 'progress'){ Start-Sleep 2 } else{ $decryptInProgress = $false } } Add-BitLockerKeyProtector -MountPoint c: -RecoveryPasswordProtector $newStatus = Get-BitLockerVolume -MountPoint c: $recoverykey = $newStatus.KeyProtector | Select-Object -ExpandProperty recoverypassword Start-Process -FilePath "$env:PWY_HOME\CLI.exe" -ArgumentList ("setVariable recoverykey ""$recoverykey""") -Wait if ($newStatus.KeyProtector -match 'Recovery') { Start-BitlockerEnable } } } #BitLocker should already be enabled so log keys, volume status etc. else { $recoverykey = $BitLockerStatus.KeyProtector | Select-Object -ExpandProperty recoverypassword $ProtectionStatus = $BitLockerStatus.ProtectionStatus $VolumeStatus = $BitLockerStatus.VolumeStatus Start-Process -FilePath "$env:PWY_HOME\CLI.exe" -ArgumentList ("setVariable recoverykey ""$recoverykey""") -Wait Start-Process -FilePath "$env:PWY_HOME\CLI.exe" -ArgumentList ("setVariable ProtectionStatus ""$ProtectionStatus""") -Wait Start-Process -FilePath "$env:PWY_HOME\CLI.exe" -ArgumentList ("setVariable VolumeStatus ""$VolumeStatus""") -Wait } } else { $recoverykey = 'NoTpm' Start-Process -FilePath "$env:PWY_HOME\CLI.exe" -ArgumentList ("setVariable recoveryKey ""$recoveryKey""") -Wait } #endregion execution You can modify the above script as you wish. I personally have gone with a bit of a cautious approach where it will not skip the hardware check which will reboot the pc, but for me I prefer this approach to having it encrypt the drive without checking tpm is all good which could then result in the drive being encrypted and locking out the end user. 
       
      At the end of all this, you now should be able to Both Enable bitlocker encryption as well as pull your recovery keys from pulseway like so :
