Hello, I am fairly new to using BigFix and have been tasked with evaluating how it applies patches compared to our current WSUS setup.
I came across the below article  which explains creating custom patch windows. I have created the settings that I want along with an analysis that will determine if a server is within its patch window. My problem is that after creating a Baseline with the patches that I want, my “Patch Window Open” property created by the locally activated analysis does not show in the “Run only when” constraint drop down in the take action window.
I believe the problem is that my account on our BigFix server is a non master operator account and in order for the “Patch Window Open” property to be available in the drop down, it needs to be a globally available property, correct?
I’m just getting my head wrapped around how BigFix does things and my searching hasn’t provided me with the answer to the above question.
EDIT: In case anyone runs across this…
I had someone with a Master Operator account create the Global Property that I needed and was able to use it as I needed as a “Run only when” constraint. So far, running my baseline once against a group of servers in multiple patch windows has worked beautifully.
