Dashworks 5.4.4 has a number of key improvements that assist with application management, along with additional intelligence in the automations feature. The added ability to filter devices and users by group membership is particularly useful where AD groups are a key part of application distribution. This can be combined with application associations to see where applications are assigned and not used, or installed but not assigned, building up a detailed picture of how applications are used across your estate. The In Catalog and Criticality fields allow key information from your application catalog to be stored in Dashworks. Updating date tasks to relative values opens up a wealth of flexibility in automating migration schedules, enabling a smart approach to managing tasks such as postponing deployments and automatically scheduling migrations on devices as they become ready.
AD Group Filters
The Devices and Users lists both now have a set of Group filters that enable you to filter on AD group membership. It is possible to filter on specific groups, fuzzy matching or properties of the group such as group type, member count or domain. There are options to filter on devices and users being a member, or not a member of the group. This filter operates recursively so objects will be included even if they are not a direct member of the group, but instead in a group, that is in a group, that is in a group, etc.
Bulk Update Date Task to Relative Values
When bulk updating a task value, there are 2 new options allowing you to specify relative rather than absolute values for date tasks. You can use Update relative to current value to set the value of a date task to a specified number of days before after the the current value of the task. Similarly the Update relative to now option allows you to set the value to a specified number of days before or after the current date. Date & time tasks have the option specifying the relative value in either days or hours. Both of these types of update are also available on automations for the Update task value action type.
Application In Catalog & Criticality
There are 2 new fields on Application Evergreen Details to help you to manage your application catalog: In Catalog & Criticality. In Catalog is either true or false and indicates whether an application that you see in your inventory is approved and managed within your enterprise. Criticality can have a value of Core, Critical, Important, Not Important or Uncategorised. It matches the values seen in Desktop Analytics for categorising applications.
