Quick question for the community

0 Likes
We are currently working on making the Bundle Status view provide both a consolidated and a per version view. This would allow you to see how many users/devices have a particular version of a bundle or the bundle as a whole. However, right now it looks like when you delete a version, say 0, that the status records associated with version 0 are still in the database. This means that the consolidated view would still consider devices that had version 0.

We are trying to understand whether this is what you as customers would expect? Or would you expect that if version 0 is deleted all status records from that would be deleted as well. This would mean that in the consolidated view workstations that had version 0 would not be shown in the consolidated view, even though they once deployed an older version of the app. Which behavior do you feel is desired?

  • Keep the deleted version status record.
    I would expect the Bundle status to show current version by default. However "Advanced Status" would display consolidated version of both current and historical data.

    A device w/licensed software installed via a bundle (Version 0) and it is disconnected from the network. (exists as standalone device at a monitoring station, etc.)
    Then upgraded this licensed software bundle to Version 1 (vulnerability fix). I cannot presume all my Version 0's received the update to Version 1.

    For usability, change control and license compliance, I would expect to know where all bundle versions are installed. Also for comparison tracking I could determine which devices had the version 0, that didn't get version 1.

    For those devices that received version 0 then upgrade successfully to version 1, the install tally would move from the historic to current qty installed.

    Side Note -
    Portable inventory scans currently record OS, software, licensed software and hardware, can it record bundles/versions also? This way a portable inventory scan will show current status of bundles installed on disconnected devices.
