  1. K1000 8.0 themes

    The 8.0 version theme is very bright and hurts the eyes. I think it would be good to allow several themes, especially to allow a company to theme the site to be how they would like it.

    • Dark Mode in Admin Console

      Please add the option to switch between light and dark mode in the KACE admin console. The interface is very bright, and we spend a lot of time looking at it.

      Something like what YouTube offers, where users choose if they want light or dark.

        • Konductor log munin plugin

          A munin plugin could be a more readable way to monitor the K1000 activity.

          • Backup organisations separately

            It would be nice to get the possibility to backup organisations separatley, so that you can restore just a single organisation/database instead of the whole KACE.

            • Security issue with shares on Kbox - not compliant with well known security practices.

              Security issue with shares on Kbox - not compliant with well known security practices.
              The NTFS permissions of folders under the share, that is on a kbox that houses the agents for installs is set to "Everyone". This is a very poor security practice. We need a way to set that to "Domain Users" or other domain security principals. In short, if the kbox could be added to a domain (Active Directory or other ldap domain), we could input tighter security groups.

              • Support Windows 10 Feature Update installations via KACE patching.

                With the new model of Windows updates, we need to be able to easily push these feature updates such as Anniversary Edition via the KACE in order for it to fully replace the current functionality of a WSUS server.

                • Location Overview

                  When I open a "location", only the inventory is displayed - no assets. For example, we have assigned a monitor asset to a location - but this monitor is not displayed. It should appear in the "location" everything assigned - otherwise you do not need a location.

                  • Patching needs a Workflow Builder with Scripts, Notifications, Machine Actions.

                    KACE needs the ability to build out a patching session as a workflow.

                    With a Pacthing Workflow you can add in functions such as separate OS and Application patching schedules, Notifications, Scripts, Machine actions, etc. and have them all run within a set overall time and recieve vaulable notifications as the process is running or if something isn't working.

                    Currently I have to run scripts before and after certain servers are patched to manage applications/services so a Detect and Deploy job with multiple reboots doesn't corrupt data. Whenever a schedule time needs adjusted, changes have to be made all over…

                    • secure ldap

                      I would be good if the k1000 would not auto accept certificates for secure ldap from active directory - customer would like to get a way to create self sinned certificate forms for secure ldap , like the same thing you when you want to hook an ssl certificate to the k1000

                      • Attach from cloud based storage

                        I think it would be awesome to be able attach files from cloud based storage to assets.

                        How we manage assets we typicaly get a quote, save it as a PDF, then get a PO which is also anothe PDF. Eventually we get a PDF of the actualy invoice and another PDF of the packing slip.

                        We try to make this a single PDF, so it would be cool to just have an attachment feature allowing you to automatically link a file from a cloud storage service just by searching for the file name. Then we wouldn't have to delete…

                        • Official support for K1000 agent on Server Core

                          Windows Server running in Server Core mode is becoming more popular and is being pushed by Microsoft as the standard install mode for servers. The idea being, use just enough OS, which is lighter, faster, requires less patching and reboots, has a reduced attack surface, consumes less memory, installs and reboots faster, etc... We've become more aggressive with deploying server core since the release of Server 2016. We have over 30 servers running it at this point with plans to double that within a year. I'd rather not have to run a separate WSUS server just for the systems running…

                          • Digitally Signed Emails and Service Desk

                            The service desk should accept digitally signed emails. Our users typically use a digital certificate and automatically sign all emails. when a digitally signed email is sent to the service desk, the email is blank and you do not see any text. This used to work in previous versions... not sure why it was taken out.

                                • Remove "RAM Used" in device change history

                                  Currently, the change history for devices is filled up by "Ram used changed" entries. In my opinion, RAM used always changes during normal operations and should NOT be logged as a device change. It clutters up the change history and makes it harder to find real changes. If it actually serves any real purpose, which I doubt, there should be an option to suppress logging such entries.

                                  • "BIOS release date changed" is logged continuously

                                    A message is logged continuously in the device change history that the BIOS release date changed. Since this is only one change, it should be logged only once, not continuously.

                                    • Upload barcode image into Kace with Kace Go

                                      As an admin, along with the ability to scan barcodes, I would like to be able to upload a picture of the asset's barcode image to the asset record directly from the app.

                                      • Add Zoom to the Patch Catalog

                                        I see that GoToMeeting is in the patch catalog. Can Zoom be added as well?

                                        • Service Desk API

                                          I need to be able to create, update, and close tickets from external sources (other billing systems, etc). There appear to be APIs for most modules but none for Service Desk. Email is not sufficient for ticket operations.
