  2. Function like 'iptables' or basic firewall

    It would be nice to have a function like iptables or basic firewall in order to block network traffic from or to ip-addresses or network segments (e.g. User-VPN) directly on the K1000.

  3. Label Management Groups

    We are a Global company with other IT help desks that I would like to only give visability to certain lables. I do not want my China, EMEA, India, etc... help Desk groups the ability to manage computers that do not fall under their region. I would like to only give them access to certain "Region/Parent" lables that a machine falls under.

  4. Field Level Read/Write/Hide permissions

    Would like to get a little more granular with the role permissions to be able to set individual fields to read only or hide in addition to the present ability to read/write/hide to Assets/Asset Types/Scripting etc

  5. Automate Software Threat Level Settings

    Software Threat Level settings are auto set. For example, like AppDeploy, users can submit software ratings and it will be applied to one's software inventory.

  6. Report to access/track admin login and duration

    It is good to have a report which can give us admin/technicians access log because people responsible for the different orgs. ask and complain about things and we wanted to see if they are actually accessing the server to perform jobs or getting benefited by the Kace 1000 and 2000. I was not able to access this report and kbox technical support said this type of report is not available. I was LANdesk admin and I have used this feature/report to prove that our people are not using the system (LANdesk).

  7. Limit access to report categories and asset types by role or user label

    I would like to limit access to report categories and asset types by role or user label. For example, we have a vehicle maintenance queue. We have vehicles as assets and we have reports for those vehicles. My vehicle maintenance guy doesn't need be able to see and modify the IT assets or reports, he just needs to see and modify his vehicle assets. Also, he doesn't need to be able to see the IT reports, just reports for his vehicles.

  8. Specific Script Permissions and Availability based on Role or Label Membership

    We have a situation where we would like to have a user be able to run a task that requires elevated permissions. We would be able to do this through KACE, because we can give the user a login, and access to the scripts. The only issue is we don't want the user to have access to all of the scripts. If there could be a way to configure within the Role or by Membership to a label, we could control what scripts a particular user might have the ability to run.

  9. Kace needs to support Secure LDAP for Users running AD and internal CAs.

    Kace needs to provide better support for secure LDAP connections. The most common Active Directory environment running Secure LDAP is running an internal CA.The K1000 does not support using an internally signed certificate. That means that if we want to use LDAP for authentication we have to use unencrypted LDAP. Unencrypted passwords should be a serious concern to Dell.

  11. Support RSA SecurID logins

    Support the use of RSA SecurID for admin logins to the K1000 appliance. The K1000 has access to all servers for management purposes and one-time passwords would provide a higher level of security by preventing a stolen password from being used for logins.

  12. Set seperate timeout sessions for both the userui and the adminui

    As it stands, there is only one setting for timeout. Given that as support technicians, we have our console open all day, it would be nice to be able to have our queues open without being timed out. As for the users, it seems better to make sure that they do not leave theirs open for an extended period of time.

  13. SSL Certificate

    Would like to request the ability to upload certificates for the use of SSL. It would be helpful to have this feature added under the K1000 Agent Settings section. This way after the certificate has been uploaded, all clients would be able to obtain it instead of manually placing the certificate it on every client machine that has been inventoried.

  14. Firewall for all traffic, not just httpd

    Even with ssh disabled from the web gui, I get a lot of messages re: sshd login attempts. I'd rather have all traffic outside my subnets dropped except for connection to Kace update servers.

  15. Allow scheduling icon to appear even if LDAP login/password are not provided

    The KBOX seems to require the specification of an LDAP login name and password in order for the scheduling icon to show up. Since our LDAP server does not require a LDAP login/password (all of the relevant user data is visible via anonymous bind), we left those fields blank. When I created a dummy LDAP account just for the purpose of binding, and specified this account for the LDAP login/password, the scheduling icon showed up again.

    Ideally it would be good if this limitation could be removed (so that an LDAP login/password is not required to get the scheduling icon…

  16. Dynamic LDAP lookups to assign users to roles

    Currently, when a user is created (either on import, or when they log in), the role they have at that time is assigned to their account, even if the underlying database (e.g. Active Directory) changes. For example, say you've set up the K1000 so that all members of a particular AD security group are admins of the K1000, and all members of another AD security group are K1000 users. If you change a user's AD security group so that they're not in the admin group any longer, that change won't ever take effect on the K1000 and thus the user…

  17. Service Desk - Security for Choose Action Options

    Allow the ability through roles to lock down the Choose Action options for users. This will keep users from making mass changes to tickets (priority, status, etc.) which can have adverse effects on other users, report statistics, etc.

  18. Import User Groups on LDAP Import

    It would be nice if the LDAP Import would automatically list all groups a user belongs to during import. Currently, a custom LDAP filter has to be setup for each group in order for this to work. That is a lot of extra work when I've got over 2000 AD groups.

  19. Granting Permissions

    Current permissions on the adminui side are too simplistic, they give too much control. I have helpdesk staff that need the ability to launch Scripts, manage Computer Inventory, and add/edit things in Assets. We are a smaller IT shop, which is the reason our staff has more than tickets to do.

    I'll use the Assets tab as an example. I need the ability to give some users the ability to Create and Edit in some Assets, but not have the ability to Delete. Some other Assets I don't want them to have anything other than Read. Some other users I…

  20. Allow the use of label groups for deployment and ACLs

    Label groups cannot currently be used for anything other than organizing multiple labels. I would like the ability to utilize label groups for deployments and setting ACLs more easily.
