We have tightened the access to system scopes and team members will only be able to see the scopes where their team has access to all the systems in that scope. Administrators will continue to have unrestricted access across all system scopes and Pulseway features while user-defined teams will see just the scopes that are relevant to their current access level. Additionally, users who are not on the Administrators team will no longer have the ability to create or modify system scopes.
Tasks and reports visibility has also changed to show the entries that are configured using system scopes that the user’s team has access to. In addition to the scope check, we’ve also introduced a “Run as Team” setting for scheduled tasks and reports that will allow you to specify a team which will be used as an additional filter on top of the system scopes. Basically, “Run as Team” setting will allow scheduled tasks and reports to run only on the systems accessible to that team.
Automation tasks executions will filter out the systems that the currently logged user’s team doesn’t have access to. On the other hand, generated reports will only be shown to the team members of the user who ran the report and the administrators.
We have been listening and are thrilled to announce the introduction of our 3rd Party Patch Management module, which is designed to keep software up to date by plugging the vulnerabilities as soon as fixes are released. It has been designed with simplicity in mind and blends with our OS patch management module to ensure that your systems are patched and kept up to date.
Deploy commonly used software such as Mozilla Firefox, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Java Runtime Environment and more and we will make sure they stay up to date. Want to remove a piece of software? Just select the product name and mark it to be uninstalled and you’re done.
To get started, select some 3rd party software titles to be deployed, updated or uninstalled then configure the schedule on which patching will run and you’re ready to go.
And at the end of the month, generate patch report to see your patch compliance across your IT infrastructure and quickly identify the systems and software that needs to be updated to the latest version.

This release introduces several enhancements to the 6.0 major release:
Based on the feedback we have received from you on the 6.0 release, we are introducing system level access exceptions for teams. This feature is particularly useful when you want to grant a specific access level to a system group but want certain systems in that group to have a different access level.
By clicking the “Configure Exceptions” button, you can overwrite the access level for each system in the agent group:
After applying the changes, the exceptions will be highlighted in the group:
Policies are now stand-alone and reusable across organizations, sites and groups. The policies can also be inherited so you could assign a policy to an organization and have all the sites and agent groups inherit that policy. As well, you can overwrite a parent policy at a site or agent group level.
As soon as a policy is assigned it will take no more than a minute to be applied to all the agents.
You can now filter the notifications you receive at the account level based on organization, sites, agent groups and notification priority.
The notification filters can be set for all organizations, can be inherited and you can also overwrite the filter at an organization, site or agent group level. With the notification filters you can refine the amount of email and push notifications you receive to only the ones that matter mostly to you. It’s worth noting that the alerts will still trigger and you will still be able to review them in the notification list but you can choose not to be notified by push or email for the ones that are not important.
Welcome to Pulseway 6.0, where we created a seamless environment that is going to make your experience a lot more streamlined.SEE WHAT IS NEW
We’ve changed the way you organize, deploy agents and collaborate with your team.
