There is a built in fixlet for this:
Hide BES Clients from the Add/Remove Programs List - BES Client >= 8.0
I’m not sure what you mean by this.
Can you provide an example screenshot?
Do you mean the tray icon?
You can hide the BigFix Self Service Offers Tray Icon, but by default it should only appear if there is a relevant offer available for the user to select within it. See:
BES Client Setting: Client UI Tray Mode Selection
I’m noticing that I don’t think all options for
_BESClient_ActionManager_TrayMode are documented in the fixlet or in the list of BigFix client settings. There is also an option for
NoTray but this isn’t recommended since by default it should only appear if there are offers for the user to select, so only do this if you wish to disable BigFix Self Service Offers entirely on a specific system or set of systems.
This is also missing from the doc:
_BESClient_ActionManager_HasMainDialog to 0 and
none should disable most BigFix UI, but there might be something a bit less aggressive that might be better for most cases.
It does sound like you are describing a strange non-default settings for BigFix. If you could provide the
_BESClient_ settings for an example client with this behavior then I might be able to better tell what is present that shouldn’t be or what is missing. (Please redact server / relay FQDNs and IPs)
