After hearing too many question about how many software packages we support with BigFix and why we do not support xyz,… I decided to change the situation and work on a Chocolatey integration.
For those who do not know Chocolatey, I would recommend to have a look here:
In short - it is a package manager for Microsoft Windows.
As Chocolatey hosts a really nice (free of charge!) package repository at https://chocolatey.org/packages, I thought it would be really cool, if we could make those packages available in IBM BigFix.
The integration I am working on is at the very early stages, but I would like to give you a sneak peek on my Chocolatey Fixlet generator:
Additional Fixlets for managing Chocolatey will be published on BigFix.me as well.
Full technical details about the integration will be released after my session at the
IBM Master Skills University in London - Special gifts will be provided to those who join the session
Let me know, what you think about it and if this kind of integration might be useful for you. Feature requests are welcome!
Follow me on BigFix.me to get the latest version of the integration, once it is released: https://bigfix.me/user/freebitflow
