Please add the ability to specify the Archive Manager destination folder.
Archive Manager works great when you’re using it only by BigFix, for BigFix.
When using it for humans, however, or with other tools, it’s rather cumbersome to have to find a path based on the BigFix Computer ID of a machine like “BigFix Enterprise\BES Server\UploadManagerData\BufferDir\sha1\89\123456789”.
One use case is with audits. I know I could use BF to run the audit and spit out the report, but my auditing vendor first and foremost would consider that to be me auditing myself (no bueno of course), but they also require the output of their audit script to be in specific format(s). Right now I can get that output folder uploaded to “BigFix Enterprise\BES Server\UploadManagerData\BufferDir\sha1\89\123456789”, but if we’re not auditing every device then it’s cumbersome to have to find which of the hundreds of numeric folders have the audit script outputs uploaded to them.
It would be much simpler and faster if I could just go to “BigFix Enterprise\BES Server\UploadManagerData*Audits\2020\foo*” to find my audit vendor’s results for their 2020 FOO audit.
And that’s before we think of the fun stuff, like using BigFix to allow users working in multiple segmented environments to leverage the BigFix architecture to upload files into a central repository without unnecessarily complicating the firewall configs.
Closest I could find to this feature was Archive now directory where it was suggested to make this a feature request a few years ago.
Thanks for noodling on this!
