yeah - your interpretation you just mentioned is correct. It’s been a while since I posted this, we’ve since all defaulted to using the console…
just reiterating: in the web UI, when you click on content -> software, it only displays software distributions created using SWD. We never really use that method to generate content, so all of our ‘custom’ tasks/fixlets don’t show up there. Maybe this is a fault of how we utilize bigfix, but it is what it is, and we’re in a hole that would be difficult to climb out of if we wanted this feature to work the way it’s designed.
there is always the options to go to content - > custom, but that displays and organizes things in a chaotic manner and it would not be easy for a new helpdesk person to know what they’re looking for there. there’s too much content being displayed there. unlike the console that has things organized in sites, this just sorta shows everything you have access to in one giant list.
I was curious if there was a method for me to pick something that shows up in custom, and easily integrate it in a manner where it’d show up under content -> software, as intuitively and without experience, most people would navigate to there while looking for it. it sounds like that is not a thing in current form. unfortunately it’s also one of the main things that prevented adoption of the web ui for us.
I agree, a way to tag it there could be really convenient, but not if it’s going to break design intentions. Some thoughts:
Another option could be to allow us to create our own choice on the drop down menu to call it something else, and let us tag or organize items that are visible there… or maybe let us browse all available fixlets/tasks that are stored in specific sites from a drop down menu choice?
