  1. Allow payloads (scripts, managed installs, file syncs, etc) to deploy in a specific order

    I would like to have scripts deploy in a specific order just like the deploy order for Managed Installs. Also I would like to order managed installs and scripts together so that an install happens before a script runs and vice versa.

    • Scripting in KBOX

      Would like to be able to create a group for scripts. Currently have 200 scripts in KBOX and growing daily. For example i would like to be able to create a Group called printers and have all my printer scripts in that group. This way i am not scrolling through 200+ scripts to find what i need.

        under review  ·  Dean WadeDean Wade responded

        There are a couple of ways to approach this – I think the current thinking would be to add a “type” to each script and allow users to define them and then use the View By function. Thoughts?

      • Remote wipe functionality for lost or stolen machines.

        If a machine is reported lost or stolen, KBox should be able to implement a secure wipe function.

        • Resume an already started script at reboot

          Have a script start running, restart the computer, and then continue to run

            • Results of scripts that are scheduled should also be aggregated and "reported" like run now scripts

              When scripts are scheduled to be deployed at a later time, the results are not reported like scripts that are deployed using the "run now".

              Change the tab "Run Now Status" to "Scheduled/Run Now Status" and then report the results of scheduled script deployments there as well.

              • Add the ability to verify a file/directory does NOT exist while scripting tasks.

                In the verify stage of scripting tasks, you can check if a file/directory does exist, but there is no option to verify that they do not. By providing this feature, it would be easier to deploy based on trigger files instead of always relying on the registry.

                • Run now status page for SCHEDULED Kscripts

                  The run now status page is somewhat usefull, for Online kscripts that were run NOW. However, for scripts that are scheduled, you need to have a view to see their success failure rate.

                  • Option to Run Scripts at Inventory Check-In

                    I would like to see the function added to be able to set a script to run when machines check-in for Inventory. This would be much like the way the Managed Installs work, instead of having to schedule the script, or monitor for when the machines check-in.

                      • delete files uploaded to KBOX by script

                        When files are uploaded to the KBOX by script, they are stored in 'inventory>computer selected>software>uploaded files' . There isn't an option to simply remove this uploaded file when it is of no more use. There should be a small 'X' next to the file name to remove this file at all times in case the IT administrator no longer needs said file.

                        • Run Now - User listed in Run Now Status

                          I would love to be able to see who ran a "Run Now" script in the "Run Now Status" Detail Page. Currently, there is no way to see which tech initiated the "run now" script items, at least easily.

                          • Run Once Option in Scripting

                            A run once option (checkbox) in the scripting module would be a good addition. The verify option works to solve most run once scenarios, but not all. Creating a registry entry to ensure a machine reboots one time is cumbersome and not intuitive.

                                    • Add Script Descriptions and Notes to Run Now

                                      When someone selects a script from the Run Now drop-down, it should show the description and and notes for that script.

                                      • Online Kscripts - Add 'Run on next connect if Offline'.

                                        Online Kscripts - Add 'Run on next connect if Offline'. Many times a system goes offline when a scheduled script was supposed to run. Adding in this feature would insure that machine still ran the script. Currently we are always troubleshooting, "Is scripting broken?", versus "Did konductor NOT assign the machine the script". If we had this feature we could focus on machines that have a broken scripting mechanism.

                                        • Offline KScript "RunAs" option

                                          It would be nice to have an option to run an offline kscript as a specified user. As it is right now, I have to run the offline script and then call a second online script so that I can get the permissions needed from the Admin account.
