  1. Option to change settings for ALL or 1 organization from the System Org

    In our environment, we require multiple organizations. Many times, I need to make the same change to all orgs, and it takes a lot of time to edit each organization. I would like the option to "apply changes to all organizations" so that I don't have to spend all my time going through each org to make a simple change.

  2. add the ability to import users from Active Directory on system-level

    It would be great if we could add our administrators domain users to the system-level of the K1000 to manage all the other domains in our forest which we placed in different organisations of the K1000.
    That way we wouldn't have to add each and every member of our IT department to each organisation AND the system-level manually, which is really quite annoying.

  3. Require Organization selection at log in, Customizable order

    It will be helpful, have the opportunity to customize the option (Require Organization selection at log in), so when end users log in the Welcome page, they see directly the ORG they belong to, instead of the Default ORG as the first option from the drop down menu.

  4. Assign organization when installing client

    The Filter option in the K1000 is not Advanced enough to handle machines that is not on a domain, not the same IP range (e.g WAN) but belongs to a spesific organization. This without user interaction to change spesific settings, say Computer Description. This does not automate the process of installing

    It would be prefrable to be able to add this feature to the Client installer overriding the filters that is set.

    I would think this is possible to do using the installer files or using the agent name; For instance ampagent-6.0.1079-x86_server.domain.local_org1.msi

  5. Copy Scripts between ORG's

    We use multiple ORG's and often we write scripts in a "DEV / TEST" ORG to perform testing and measure impact prior to releasing scripts into our Production environment/ORG. To do this we need to re-write the script in the production ORG which can sometimes be a long procedure and can also be prone to errors. If we could copy a script from one ORG to another this would eliminate the work and possible errors.

  6. Additional filter options with Organizations

    There needs to be more filter options available with the Organization settings to filter by common WMI inventory information - such as Win32_OperatingSystem OSType to seperate Server and Workstation OS's.

  8. All ORGs can see and select all data across orgs

    Right now ORGs are seperated, It would be nice to be able to select things that are across all ORGs such as software, selfservice helpdesk software etc.

  9. Admin Servicedesk with Organization component enabled

    We have several organizations but only one IT department that is responsible for all locations. It would be fine if it would be possible to configure a servicedesk queue for administrators (maybe on systemlevel) for all (or chosen) servicedesks in the organizazions, where the tickets are displayed.

  10. Be able to consolidate deployment packages across different organizations and manage them centrally

    Currently, our organization has several KACE organizations, and they all need similar software. However, we have to upload any software package as many times as we have organizations and then we have to configure the deployment for that software for each organization individually. This takes up much more space on our Kbox, and requires a lot of redundant work. Please allow the ability both to share deployment packages across organizations as well as to centrally manage software deployments across all organizations.

  11. Link that selects specific org

    I'd like the ability to pre-select an org based on the link. E.g., https://kace.blah/?org=ORG1

    We have several orgs and want to send users to the right org with little intervention from them.

    I saw the suggestion for logging users in based on orgs, but we have some users across multiple orgs.

  12. Make customers using multiple Organizations aware of defect "id K1-19980" in version 9.0.270 so we can better utilize our system.

    Since we’ve upgraded our K1000 Appliance to Version: 9.0.270, the Organization filters do not work and devices get put into the Default Org. Now we have to manually force the device to move to the correct Org, as we have 3 Orgs in our K1000. Once the device is moved to the correct Org we have to force inventory on that device so our label will get picked up and install the designated software. We then need to manually delete the device in both inventory and assets from the Default Org. This is taking away from our automated process and…

  13. Replication as a "System" Level Component in Multi-org Environments

    For multi-organizational capable configurations make Replication a System level component and allow all orgs to leverage the replicated dataset. Also allowing more granular control of what gets replicated to the target shares.

  14. system level jobs

    As an admin, I would like a way to manage more things from a system level. For example, have default software jobs, scripts, smart labels, etc that are required on every or certain orgs, that an ORG-level admin can not turn off.
