  1. Disable Weak Ciphers/Protocols in Expert Assist

    We need the ability to disable the use Weak/Outdated ciphers. We have disabled 3DES, TLS 1.0 and 1.1 on all of our windows systems, however TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1 and 3DES still appear on our security scans on port 2000. EA is NOT utilizing the security configuration that the Windows system is configured for. For example TLSRSAWITHNULLSHA256 is showing as an active cipher on port 2000 when that cipher is disabled on the windows system. Please provide a method to select what ciphers EA will use.

  2. In Folder

    Folder Redirection element - you have something for IE Favorites. Please create something for Chrome and Edge Favorites as well, since IE is going away soon. Thanks.

  3. Kace Patching - Prompt user snooze highlighted not ok

    hello, we are using the kace schedule to patch machines however a few times the prompt user window has displayed with the highlighted button for ok rather than snooze (the ok button restrats the machine)and as the prompt has come to the foreground the user not notiicing it has hit enter on their keyboard and the machine has restarted without them wanting to. So i think the highlighted button should be snooze
    Thanks

  4. Integrate File Operations with off network support in AWS & Azure

    Off network support was great idea taken half way, we really need this integration to go all the way and support file operations. This will really set Desktop Authority free and support the 1000s of business who now find themselves with home workers and no immediate return to the office plan.

    Having the ability to do simple things like deliver files, templates and much more advanced file routines to remote user needs to be a top priority.

  5. allow drive mapping with certain user credentials

    It should be possible to pass certain user credentials for mapping a network drive. As written in this kb article (https://support.quest.com/de-de/kace-desktop-authority/kb/106951/is-it-possible-to-pass-credentials-when-mapping-drives?kblang=en-US) this is not possible. Also other options (like mapping without drive letter) might be useful.

    Kind regards

  6. Be able to control User Configuration Profiles programmatically with an API

    We would like to be able to control (User) Profiles in Desktop Authority with an API, for example REST API. With User Profiles we are refereeing to the Profiles that are located in Desktop Authority under Client Configuration.

    We would really want this feature because we have approximately 70 User Profiles spread across multiple Desktop Authory installations / Active Directory domains.

    Use cases:
    • Create a User Profile for a new customer
    • List all User Profiles elements (we have User Profiles with settings that are applicable for multiple customers, that need to be identical across multiple domains and this…

  7. USB file extension control

    USB port security should offer more granular control over the data that can be read/write from the USB.
    Like the possibility to block/allow base in the file extension.

  9. Have the possibility to change the options of the icon of the DA agent

    Actually, we can not modify the values of the options of the DA icon. And by defaut, the option "Lock Workstation" is selected by defaut.
    My suggestion is the possibility to can change the default option et x=can disable the others options.

  10. View pending changes before replication

    It would be very beneficial to view what changes are pending replication be fore actually replicating. When more than one admin has access to make changes, they can see if another admin has been changes and verify that it is safe to replicate the changes in their current state.

  11. Consolidated Profile History

    In each Profile, there is an option to view the change history. I would like to see this ability added to the parent Profile section to view a consolidated history of all changes made to all sub-profiles.

  12. Disable splash screen in Logon and Logoff

    Disable splash screen in Logon and Logoff still show pop ups.
    It would be good if DA offer the option to remove any pop up window when at user logon or logoff.
    Settings in global config do not accomplish that, still shows information.
    This is a problem, because if the user sees a pop up that do not expect, it will contact help-desk.
    Desktop Authority user logon and logoff should have a silent option where the user does not see any splash screen / popup window.

  13. Add Validation Logic Rule - Directory Exists

    Please add a Validation Logic Rule that checks whether a Directory Exists or not. There is a "File Exists" rule but there are plenty of circumstances when a directory needs to be validated for existence.

    EDIT
    Looks like the "File Exists" can check for directories. Would be nice if it wasn't documented as just checking "file" existence.

  14. KACE Appliance Linking

    I would like to see the ability to link DA with the SMA. I'm sure this would not be an easy thing but to be able to see DA information in the SMA, such as logs, Expert Assist, seeing a computer is reporting in on DA off-network where the SMA cannot see it, importing and distributing new SMA Agents when they become available, and more, could be a big benefit.

    I know that on the SMA side, you can use custom inventory to query a lot of the information, and there's the Device Action capability that can be used to…

  15. Remove snooze button from scripting message windows

    When using the "Create a message window" option in the scripting engine, the message box displayed to the user should not include a snooze button - or at the very least, when configuring the message window, there should be an option to show or hide the snooze button. Often, we are using the message window solely for informational purposes for the user, (ie. to notify them that a process is about to begin). Having a snooze button show up here is extremely confusing for end users. Attached is the configuration of a message box (Capture2.PNG) and the message actually displayed…

  16. Web UI navigation makes administration slow and painful

    I was a huge fan of Desktop Authority when it ran as an application UI, before it became a web UI. The Web UI is so slow to refresh and make changes that it has more than doubled the time necessary to complete tasks that used to be instantaneous in the application UI. Creating, deploying, administering Printers for large organizations used to be a huge advantage and very organized in the old UI. Now, one must forward through endless screens and wait for slow refresh times to add, remove, copy, paste or reorder printer elements. A Task that used to…

  18. email signature plain text conversion

    I am using the Outlook element to set corporate email signatures in HTML format. It works well. However, when replying to a plain text email, then no signature gets displayed at all. At the very least, it should change the signature from HTML to plain text, but it doesn't. Or, it would be nice if we can force all replies to HTML, regardless of the format of the original email?

    In ref to SR Number:4545450

    If you would like to see a plain text conversion added to Desktop Authority you can submit the request to our User Voice forum and…

  19. Ability to filter all rules based on validation logic

    A client brought up the request of wanting to be able to see all rules applied to a given PC name. An example was: which shortcuts and drive mappings are applied to all devices named PC-Example*. This was outside of looking at an sltrace file or performing a database query.

  20. Configure default applications in Windows 10

    Currently it is only possible to configure default applications (Browser, Mail, PDF viewer) in Windows 10 by using Group Policy Templates and Windows' DISM tool to generate an XML file that can be pushed using File Operations. There should be an easier feaure included to configure default applications for certain scenarios.
