Generally, I want to be able to more easily select devices that have a last report time that is fairly recent, as these devices are more likely to be online and report back results. (within the last 45 min)
It would also be nice to have computers that have a “last command time” value within the past week highlighted in some way, because it can be reasonably assumed that these devices are getting UDP notifications. ( I could make an automatic group to help with this, but it isn’t an ideal solution if I already want to query a different automatic group )
Also, for BigFix infrastructure with a rather high number of endpoints, I’m generally going to want to start by selecting an automatic group, not individual endpoints.
It would also be useful if the last targeting criteria was sticky so that I didn’t have to reselect the last used computers every time I open the tool.
It would be useful if my most recent queries were shown in a list, at least for that session so I could easily re-run them.
It would be interesting if the results page for a query would give a running summary of the results, irrespective of the computers that returned them, with the details of the computer/result pair listed below. If I query 1000 machines, I care much more about the unique results and the count of each result, and I care very little about which computer the result actually came from.
It would also be useful if more of the out of the box suggested queries were more cross platform. Some queries can just be fairly cross platform, while others would require a compound relevance statement like:
if mac of operating system then "this" else "that"
Here is a cross platform example of how to query the hosts file: https://bigfix.me/relevance/details/3017247
lines whose (it does not start with "#" AND it as trimmed string does not equal "") of files "hosts" of (folders "/private/etc"; folders "/etc"; folders "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc"; folders "C:\Windows\sysnative\drivers\etc")
Also, the following query gives the result
No Inspector Context which is odd:
last command time of client
