Search by Asset Information in "All Devices"

Currently there is no way to search for information like Serial Number or Asset Tag in the "All Devices" screen. Currently the only way to perform this kind of search is to start creating a filter and sort by "Hardware > System Serial Number > Contains". This is obviously not ideal and for the few techs that need to search by serial number it can be confusing after not doing it for so long. Would it be feasible to add ...more »

Custom properties for customers and sites

In rolling out N-central, I had planned to make use of the external ID fields for filters but found that the external ID set at the customer level is not equal to the external ID at the site level. Even worse, if a value is set at the customer level for external ID, filtering won't include devices at the site level unless they too have external ID filled out. I would propose: - Give us the ability to create multiple ...more »

Windows 10 Version Report

With the regular roll-out of new versions of Windows 10 via Upgrade coming out on a regular basis, the need to report on which devices have which version of the OS is an every growing need to successfully manage a proper patching environment. Is it possible to create such a report in N-central without needing to run a per-customer Detailed Asset report and manipulate thousands of fields in a CSV to remove unnecessary ...more »

Don't download approved superseded patches

I have found (especially with Windows 10/Windows Server 2016 server devices), that the following patches will be downloaded into the Agent Patch Cache (C:\Program Files (x86)\N-able Technologies\Patch Management\archive\): - Patches that have been set to "Approved for Install" which are not yet installed, and are superseded by other another patch that is also in the list of "Approved for Install" and "Not Installed" list. ...more »

re-sizable columns in All Devices view

I would like to have the ability to resize columns (and have selection remembered) in the All Devices view. The automatic sizing isn't always useful & I would like to resize columns to fully display the details of columns I'm interested in. While I can deselect columns, I often end up with partial details esp "logged in user"

Create or Set Custom Asset properties via AMP

it would useful to have custom device information be populated by an AMP script.

So for example we have a specific asset tag which is entered into the registry. We would like to be able to obtain this via AMP script and then update the custom asset information with it.

 

Then it would be handy to filter by the custom asset information.

Access Client Meta-Data from within an AMP

It would be awesome to be able to access "environment variables" from within an AMP such as Client Name / ID

 

That way we could write an AMP to install a client-specific software (such as Sophos AV) that automatically determines which client it's installing for, and configures the software appropriately.

 

Hate to say it, but Labtech has always done this and it's awesome.

Filter on Operating System Version

I would like N-Central to include the ability to filter based on operating system version. Windows 10 version 1511 is reaching EOL on October 10th, 2017. In order to help clients identify what systems needed to be upgraded, I was going to create a new Filter for Windows 10 machines running version 1511 (version 10.0.10586) However, the filtering rules currently don't allow the ability to filter on operating system ...more »

Scheduled Tasks - Filter on Columns, Search on Contents

This one has been an obvious problem for years, but I'll resubmit ot in the new system anyway. N-Central simply can't scale up with large amounts of schedueld tasks running in one job. This is because the outputs aren't in any ideal sorted order (and can't be changed), you can't filter on the columns to reduce the amount of tasks, or search against the task output content to find the task outputs you are looking for. ...more »
