Patch Management Reboot/Notification Customization

Recommended Posts

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! :)

This would be really useful for us too. We have many team members who spend whole days in meetings or training so when the 'your getting rebooted' appears with no option to delay it's problematic.

      Would it be possible to add the current logged in user for each pc to the header info that shows in the middle panel. We manage several hundred pcs and the computer name of ASSET-1234 does not tell us whos using it at that time. Most end users do not know their computer names. So trying to find the computer a user is on is sometimes difficult. Having this info at hand in the search list would help that a lot.
      i am only thinking this information for workstations, servers could potentially have multiple users logged in at the same time and this information would not be as useful (not to mention not enough space)
      I have included a mockup of one way this could be done.
      Also adding the ability to search for a current logged in user would be helpful.

      In trying to diagnose systems, often we need to be able to connect to a system before the user prompt for login. This allows us to see statuses of updates, rollback errors, etc.

      Treating user groups more like AD user groups would allow more granularity of access and less duplication of security roles.

      It would be nice to be able to add negative keywords to scopes (i.e. Does not have tag).
      We currently use a script to automatically update the system name to include the username, but there are some systems that we want to keep a static name so they are easier to identify. Currently we have to separate these into their own groups in order to keep them statically named.

      After coming from another competitor, one of the major things we are missing is a site wide software list with the ability to list systems with software and remove it from multiple systems.
      Ideally, initially it would show all software, but would allow you to filter software by name. At that point you would be able to click in and see installed systems with installed version.
