File attachment in custom fixlet

Has anyone written a custom fixlet to allow operator to attach a file and then put it into a BigFix server download sha1 directory (in sha1 filename)? Then I could create a custom action to push down this file and execute it on an endpoint?

There is a feature called “Add Files to Site” in BigFix Console. That does not seem to do what I want.


You could write a Dashboard to do this, but the easiest way is to use the built-in Manage Software Deployment dashboard to handle the file uploads, and then you can modify or copy the generated Tasks.

Hi Jason, thank you for a quick response. Which is the external site that comes with Manage Software Deployment dashboard? I know there is one called Manage Software Distribution dashboard from SWD site.

Can you share information on how to create a custom dashboard in BigFix Console?
