Asset info visible for offline systems

Recommended Posts

Instead of performing necromancy on this older thread, I will raise this question again. Why can we not see asset info for offline systems? 

I know this is available through reports, but that's a ton of steps to go through when it's already readily available offline (since the Reports can search it) and it should just be visible. This has been a big gotcha (along with not seeing internal IPs without running a report or being able to copy/paste in remote sessions) as we moved from another tool to Pulseway. I've seen more than one thread about this, and each time the response is 'run a report'. Please stop brushing it off as 'RTFM' and provide the functionality we're asking for. Thank you.

Agree 100%, when offline and communicating with client this is very problematic. Also the public IP address is nice, but the private IP address of local computer would also be easy to place in the main server/pc screen.

I agree 100% also.  This is the only program we use that "hides" information of offline systems.  If Pulseway would just say the system is "Off-Line" when looking at the data, then I think we are smart enough to know some information may not be valid any more.

Has there been any word on whether offline asset information will ever be visible without having to run a report? I think this is a critical feature. Like other tools, I think all information should remain displayed when the system is offline (with the understanding it is not realtime, but archived from when it was last online) rather than everything disappearing when the system goes offline.

 

Also, I'm not sure if others have noticed this, but after a system is offline for more than a couple of hours, the status now changes to "Offline" instead of showing Offline and the time that it has been offline. Was this a change in the latest update? I seem to recall always seeing how long systems were offline in the past.

      Hi.
      If it is possible I would like to exclude full automation scripts from the diagnostics log "trace.log".
      In normal situations it is fine with just an indication of the execution with the script name.
      I guess you could add one more checkbox like "Include full Automation Scripts" in settings, and let it be disabled as default.

      Best Regards,
      Martin.

      I was getting the policies configured for my new setup and I noticed that Patch Management only allows you to select categories of patches and just decide to install them as a whole or not. Unless I'm missing something, there's no ability to approve or deny patches on an individual level. This is a somewhat vital part of any RMM suite as we may often need to decline individual patches that are known to be causing issues (a common problem with Windows 10 these days.) I'd say this is something vital for Pulseway to get implemented as I've worked with a number of RMMs over the years and it's the first one I've seen that doesn't offer this.

      Remote Control really needs the ability to both trigger a reboot and to automatically reconnect when the system you're connected to completes the restart. Having it immediately disconnect when a reboot is triggered (usually if it's running as a service, it should be able to hold the session open for things like the first phase of installing Windows updates) and having to manually try over and over again to see if the machine has completed its reboot is really frustrating when you're trying to solve an issue remotely that requires a lot of reboots or even when you're just trying to do a number of updates to a system.

      I just signed up for Pulseway to monitor a small client of my side business. I am in the process of setting up patch management for workstations. I would like the systems to prompt the end users to reboot upon installing updates but Pulseway seems to be very restrictive in how it lets you set that up. It looks like all I can do is have it reboot immediately or give the users a 5 minute warning with a generic message.
      I work with a competitor product at my day job and it allows us to specify whatever message we want, set whatever timer amount we want and allow the users to defer the updates as many times as we want or force a reboot after a certain number of deferments. It does not appear Pulseway provides any of this customizability.
      It would be very nice to have these options so I can have choices other than forcing end users to reboot during the day or having systems that potentially go days without a reboot after installation.
      Thanks!

      The recent update to the web portal that stripped away all the colors and icons and left blue or grey outlines on a blue and grey/white backdrop is horrid. Using the web portal is now much less intuitive and not as easy to navigate at a glance by far.
      Is there any way to go back to the previous interface that had colors? I mean, if you're not going to give us the choice on using such a minimalist interface, at least give us a dark mode...
