It would be nice to be able to use booleans in an automation policy with the added effect of allowing certain input parameters to only show when certain boxes are checked. This would allow for more complex and user friendly Automation Policies without the need to give the user to many options when they are running specific Automation Policies. To give a small example, I have a disk cleanup script that has multiple sections ...more »
I can't tell you how many times I've needed to somehow report on the results of an automated task.

Currently I have to enable email notifications if I want updates, but that's not a good idea when running a task on hundreds of nodes (I've made that mistake before).

The very vast majority of tasks we run will not take over an hour to run, but this is the lowest threshold we are able to select.
It would be great to be able to have tasks run at a randomised time between a and b, rather than fixed times.
The inbuilt ability to have reboot aware tasks ie resume running after a reboot is performed
we would like the ability to run scripts, automation policies, file transfers, and push third party software on custom device classes. since the Operating System information is still in asset info and in the settings tabs we feel it is fairly unreasonable that these devices are not available to target (for example we have a custom device class CSI Probe that are windows devices but which are not available on the targets ...more »
