  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Allow other roles to add and/or manage credentials

    Currently, the 'Credentials' section of Settings is only "editable" for users in the Administrator role. It would be much more flexible to allow users in other roles to edit (or at least add new) credentials.

    If someone is given rights to add new scripts, we would commonly want to also give them rights to use custom credentials for that script.

  9. Allow administrator to choose where Windows updates are stored on client

    These days anti-virus are blocking common locations such as Windows/Temp due to ransomware risks etc. It would be nice if I can tell Kace appliance to download the patches to Kace folder or a user specified folder which we may be able to exclude from AV. Folders like Temp and Downloads are high risk locations these days.

  11. 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

  12. 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).

  15. 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.

  16. User settable 2FA Settings, Fine-grained 2FA Settings

    The current 2FA implementation is extremely lacking. I only seem to be able to find the prompt to scan a 2FA code after first toggling it on, and then from the administrator panel when lookup up users. Virtually every other 2FA I've configured gives an option in user settings to manage their 2FA codes. Without letting users do that you are asking for lockout issues if a user has to get a new phone, this should not be hidden in the User administration area, unless admins want to hide that from users.

    Furthermore, we should have more fine-grained settings to…

  17. Restrict Number of Login Attempts

    The server needs the ability to lock access after specified number of failed login attempts. This would help protect the server against brute force attacks.

    The System Performance page or MUNIN must be secured and locked down to allow viewing only by system administrators. We cannot have this System Performance graph (https://<K1000_HOSTNAME>/munin/) visible to the public!

  19. 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.
