# Releases

# 0.52.7

Released 2022-07-11

# Improvements


  • The script list page now persists your filters after refreshing or leaving the page.
  • Fixed width issues in the maintenance item column on the deployment list page
  • Reduced required permissions for N-Central integration. See the new N-Central integration docs (opens new window) for details
  • Added a new PowerShell cmdlet Stop-ImmySession that will cancel the maintenance session it is currently running in

# Bug Fixes


  • Fixed some potential issues around agent connected/disconnected events
  • Fixed potential N-Central exception with re-sending messages
  • Fixed potential issue with 'missing' devices from N-Central due to possible filter contamination in N-Central

# 0.52.6

Released 2022-06-27

# Improvements


  • Set the default install script for new software to the "Manual Install Script" and the upgrade strategy to "Install Over" whenever we don't have another specific install script to provide
  • Set the default software installer type to "Installer File"
  • Updated the example New-DynamicVersion script
  • We now show a confirmation modal when choosing the "Wiped" option for resolving an agent identification conflict.
  • You can now see Cloud Sessions from the main Sessions list!
  • Added warnings when the ephemeral agent is failing to establish a connection to help users identify causes for failing script execution
  • Fixed an issue with the detection stage stuck running when it fails to execute scripts in the beginning of the stage
  • Improved timeline connected/disconnected events. There were edge cases that would show multiple connects/disconnects back to back.
  • Removed timeline computer online/offline events to avoid confusion. These events were never actually based on a computer coming online or going offline. We simply emitted "online" when an agent connected and happened to be the only online agent. Similarly for "offline" events, we only emitted the event when an agent disconnected and all agents were offline. ImmyBot does not actively check whether a machine is online or offline. It only checks whether it has any connected agents to use. This concept will be further improved upon to help resolve issues with agents incorrectly reporting connected/disconnected.
  • Removed link to software/task on deployment list since people are clicking it thinking it is the edit deployment link
  • Moved the software/task selector back above the target selector on the deployment edit page
  • Removed the media nav item since it's not actually useful

# Bug Fixes


  • Moved "Update If Found" from underneath "Installed" to the same level as "Installed" for clarity. A software can be "installed, uninstalled, ignored, or updated if found"
  • Fixed an issue with cloud task previews failing with "device offline"
  • Fixed an issue where the ImmyBot agent update action would not run when the agent was offline
  • Fixed an issue with the agent updates stage, onboarding stage, and resolution stage not honoring pending connectivity
  • Fixed an issue where the resume and cancel session buttons were incorrectly showing for postponed sessions
  • Fixed an issue with CW Control and CW Automate health error messages excluding important details that can help diagnose the problem
  • Fixed an issue where we were not checking if a configuration task is actually marked as a configuration task. This resulted in tasks getting run when they should not have.

# 0.52.5

Released 2022-06-13

# N-Central Beta Updates


  • Fixed an issue with exceptions that may occur inside the N-Central device-sync job causing memory to bloat
  • You can now get registration tokens from the NCentral integration via new PSCmdlet Get-NCentralRegistrationToken

image

# Other Improvements


  • Under "Preferences", the description of the User Affinity Sync feature says it will run every 4 hours; this is incorrect. Verbiage was changed to indicate it will run every 24 hours.
  • On the integration details page, a confirmation modal has been added when clicking the "Bulk create tenants..." button to prepare users that this will cause code execution for linked clients.
  • Added more improvements to online/offline agent handling during maintenance sessions
  • Updated the online/offline event receiver for CW Control to return immediately in an effort to close requests faster

# 0.52.4

Released 2022-05-31

# Improvements


  • Removed unnecessary checkboxes from the Computers table on the "Edit Schedule" page
  • Immy live chat now supports screenshare! Immy support can now request access to view your screen to help resolve issues faster.

# Bug Fixes


  • Fixed an issue with the maintenance email actions requiring authentication

# 0.52.3

Released 2022-05-27

# Improvements


  • ImmyAgents no longer need to see a valid board serial number in order to complete registration or rekey. Instead, ImmyAgent may fall back on and rely on an 'ImmyHWID' (Immy hardware id), when a board serial is not available. ImmyHWIDs are derived from CPU, BIOS, MOBO, GPU, and TPM information where available.
  • Updated maintenance sessions to listen on agent connected/disconnected events instead of computer online/offline events which have faster responses and higher success rates
  • When a new agent comes into ImmyBot, we now kick off the identification job immediately if it isn't already running in an effort to speed up identification
  • Added session logs for dependencies indicating what they are for. e.g. Software A depends on Software B → If not installed then install.
  • The actions in the maintenance email (Reboot Now, Update Now, and Postpone), now link to a form on the ImmyBot instance instead of linking directly to the backend api. The reason for this is because some spam filters will automatically follow links in an email, which has accidentally caused computer reboots. Moving the link to a form allows spam filters to no longer be able to trigger the action automatically.

# Bug Fixes


  • Fixed an issue causing the computer details page to sometimes not load
  • Fixed an issue with the ImmyAgent rekey request not being received
  • Fixed an issue where Get-ImmyComputer was incorrectly reporting offline

  • Fixed an issue with displaying the dependency badges on maintenance actions
  • Fixed an issue with the schedule's day of week selector cutting off the last characters of "Wednesday"
  • Fixed an issue with the CompareTo-ImmyBotVersion metascript
  • Fixed an issue with some maintenance action start times showing "2021 years ago" instead of "Unavailable" when the action never started
  • Bump Azure IoTHub packages to resolve some connection issues with the ImmyAgent

# 0.52.2

Released 2022-05-25

# Ephemeral Agent and Identification Improvements


  • ALL scripts now run through the ephemeral agent, even during identification and computer de-dupe logic 🎉
  • Additional exception information is now visible in Identification Failed tab, and in session output. This furthers insight for users to understand and fix potential reasons why the providers may have failed to run our agent. image
  • Fixed an issue where the date was not being set correctly when adding a AgentIdentificationFailure log, leading the user to think this issue happened at the beginning of time!

# Other Improvements


  • Added computer batch actions button on the tenants -> tenant details -> computers tab
  • You can no longer create a schedule that executes within one hour of detection. This is a safety measure to help prevent reboots during business hours
  • Added a checked to the schedules page for "Execute maintenance immediately after detection" to make it easier for those that do actually want to run execution after detection. When checked, you cannot set the execution time.
  • The schedule list "Next Run" column now sorts correctly and also shows the browser's local "Next Run" time
  • Added clarity to session logs when we are checking if an agent is online
  • Quick deploy actions now use Offline Behavior: Apply on Connect
  • Auto onboarding sessions now use Offline Behavior: Apply on Connect
  • Computer list batch actions - Run Maintenance now uses Offline Behavior: Apply on Connect
  • On the schedule details page, renamed "Target Category" to "Runs Against", and changed the options to "Computers" or "Cloud"

  • Fixed an issue where some failed sessions were getting marked as pending connectivity
  • Fixed some more issues around offline/online agent detection during sessions
  • Implemented a HTTP Concurrency limit for requests to N-Central to prevent issues with too many requests hitting their backend

  • Fixed an issue with the "Retry X failed computers" where it was re-attempting to identify all failed computers
  • Fixed an issue with "Analyze Installer" not returning any data
  • Fixed an issue with script output in session logs not being truncated to the last 5 lines
  • Fixed an issue with the Immy Agent installation request not reporting whether the integration is disabled or unhealthy

# 0.52.1

Released 2022-05-18

# Bug Fixes


  • Fixed an issue where tag deployments were not resolving during full maintenance
  • Fixed an issue where cloud deployments were not resolving during full maintenance

# 0.52.0

Released 2022-05-18

# Tags


You can now add tags to computers, and deploy software to tags! Manage tags under the settings link on the sidebar. Tags help in scenarios where workstations are shared by a variety of users and there is otherwise not a common property to target with a filter script.

Tags can be added to computers as a batch action on the computer list page.

image

Tags can also be added to a computer on the details page.

image

Tags can be deployed as a cross-tenant target scope.

image

Tags can also be deployed as a single-tenant target scope.

image

Settings -> Preferences -> Company Preferences -> Computers Excluded From Maintenance

or

Tenants -> Select a tenant -> Preferences tab -> Computers Excluded From Maintenance

image

# Immy Chat Integration


Added in 0.51.5

We added LiveChat to Immy to make it easier for you to get support

# Session Script Execution Improvements


Before executing a script on a device, we now check if it is online. If it is not online, we verify whether any of its agents are incorrectly reporting online and refresh the status appropriately. If it is still not online, we will wait up to 30 minutes for it come back online. If it is still not online, then we will mark the session as Pending Connectivity (only for Apply On Connect) or cancel the session due to the computer being offline.

# Other Improvements

# Onboarding Deployments


The Onboarding target type has been moved to a separate checkbox so that you can limit deployments to onboarding only AND use the target type filters.

# ImmyAgent Improvements


Updated internal infrastructure to utilize our new extended verification code-signing certificate (opens new window).

We currently sign:

  1. ImmyAgent executable & MSI/EXE/PPKG Installers
  2. Ephemeral Agent executable
  3. Static PoSH run on computers

In addition to being more secure, this ensures our software is no-longer flagged by SmartScreen.

IMPORTANT NOTE

Customers utilizing software such as ThreatLocker MUST ensure our new certificate is whitelisted, as our new EV cert required "LLC" to be present on our CN and O.

# Bug Fixes


  • Improved exception handling during maintenance sessions
  • Fixed an issue with re-running cloud scripts from a session log where it would throw an exception
  • Fixed some performance issues and improved caching of function scripts

# 0.50.7

Released 2022-02-25

# Maintenance Task Serial Execution


A maintenance task now has the option to "Execute Serially".

When checked, this maintenance task is guaranteed to only have one instance active at a time.

e.g. If three maintenance sessions have an action for a maintenance task that executes serially, then one session will execute the maintenance task while the other two wait for it to complete. Once the first completes, the second will execute. Once the second completes, the third will execute.

This is useful for maintenance tasks that rely on the state of subsequent executions.

# Other Improvements


  • Added a Status and Types column to the CW Manage client list on the integration details page so you can easily filter your list to clients you want to create tenants for. Also made the Linked Tenants column filterable to "Linked" or "Not linked". The Bulk create tenants for unassigned clients is now Bulk create tenants for filtered unassigned clients and will only bulk create tenants for those visible rows matching the table filters.
  • Added checks to ensure that the identification job is running properly

# Bug Fixes


  • Fixed an error that was preventing the computer overview page from loading

# 0.49.0

Released 2022-01-11

# Improved Performance


In this release, codenamed "Cheetah" we achieved a 20x improvement in script execution performance through the use of WebSockets, Named Pipes, and removing code that is no longer necessary since the introduction of the Ephemeral Agent.

We also made restarting machines faster by using the new event driven Wait-ImmyComputer cmdlet when waiting for computers to reconnect after a reboot.

# Apply on Connect


# Problem to solve

Computers that are offline never receive maintenance. These computers need a way to update when they miss their maintenance window.

# Solution

You can now specify the offline behavior for computers on schedules and ad-hoc deployments.

image

When offline behavior is set to Apply On Connect, a session will get marked as image when the device is offline. When the device comes online, the session will resume.

image

Since devices can come online at anytime, the option to Suppress Reboots During Business Hours is checked by default.

If a device is offline before the detection stage, then it will run the detection stage when it comes online.

If a device is offline before the execution stage, then it will only run the execution stage when it comes online. It will not re-run detection.

Maintenance emails are only sent out once regardless if the device goes offline.

# Timeline


On the computer details overview tab, there is now a section called Timeline that shows particular events that have occurred for the computer.

image

The events we are currently showing are:

  1. Agent disconnected
  2. Agent connected
  3. Maintenance action started (only shows if the action required execution)
  4. Maintenance action completed (only shows if the action required execution)

More events will be added in the future.

# Other Improvements


  • Improved performance of determining desired state of deployments during maintenance
  • Improved performance of some update queries
  • Added a new metascript cmdlet Wait-ImmyComputer that returns as soon as a computer has connectivity
  • Added & Updated Ephemeral Agent connection statistics in 'System Status' page to report data/data-rate metrics about the underlying Ephemeral Agent connection to the backend

# Bug Fixes


  • Fixed an issue where software download scripts were timing out after 60 seconds if the script didn't specify its own timeout
  • Fixed an issue where changes made to a configuration task parameters from the software page were not saving
  • Fixed issues displaying incorrect text in the target type column on the deployment and schedule list pages
  • Fixed a bug where you could not remove a software download script
  • Fixed a bug with Add-UriQueryParameter where it did not accept array values or parse existing parameters
  • Fixed an issue with Ephemeral Agent "end-of-stream" response exceptions resulting in termination of stage
  • Fixed various issues with agent connection events and improved performance
  • Fixed an issue where immy agent registrations could cause resource depletion in the backend's IoT service
  • Fixed the timezone selector to show the region to differentiate the options

# 0.48.7

Released 2021-12-10

# Access Requests


Your users and the ImmyBot support team can now request access to your instance! When an unauthorized person authenticates, a "Request Access" button is available that will submit an access request. An MSP user can then grant or deny access from the user list page. An expiration of one hour, one day, or never can be set for the user.

The access request feature can be enabled/disabled on the preferences page.

  2. Fixed an issue with function scripts being used in metascripts causing heavy load on global database
  3. Switched to force Ephemeral Agent EXE to utilize System Proxy settings to alleviate connection refusal for some users
  4. Fixed an issue with PowerShell execution occasionally throwing an error that would crash ImmyBot

# 0.47.8

Released 2021-11-17

# Features

# Ephemeral Agent EXE

  1. The ephemeral agent now executes as an .exe instead of a PowerShell script.
  2. This allows us to use a WebSocket instead of polling, which improves performance and resiliency as we can immediately detect disconnections.
  3. Decreased initial connection time by attempting to connect using all RMMs simultaneously instead of in sequence.
  4. Substantially improved logging to help troubleshoot script execution issues

Note: You may have to exclude your instance's hostname in the firewall from SSL Inspection policies! SSL Inspection may interfere with the WebSocket connection from this new agent!

Note: You may also need to adjust your security software to allow the EXE to execute. We recommend adding an exclusion for the Immense Networks code signing certificate as it will be used to sign all ImmyBot PowerShell scripts and Executables.

The subject of the certificate is:

CN=Immense Networks, O=Immense Networks, L=Baton Rouge, S=Louisiana, C=US

# Improvements

  • Inventory scripts now run in parallel
  • ImmyBot will always overwrite license files to prevent issues with software not activating because the previous license file is still in the ImmyBot download folder.
  • The script terminal on the computer details page is no longer cleared when swapping between tabs.
  • Updated the instance disabled text to specify that only an admin user can re-enable immy

# Bug Fixes

  • The EXE ephemeral agent addresses intermittent ScriptTimeout exceptions that would occur for a variety of reasons
  • Implemented a "Script Execution Circuit Breaker" per computer to prevent RMM overload when retrying ephemeral connections (This can happen when security software blocks execution or firewalls prevent outbound connections)
  • Fixed several issues around script error handling. Line numbers now display correctly. Exceptions that occur before running a script are now caught and displayed properly.
  • Fixed an issue where inventory output with a value of null was being treated as successful and overwriting good results
  • Fixed a bug with session logs showing null references when a script was cancelled or timed out
  • Fixed a bug with quick deploy where the deployment resolution stage was unnecessarily reaching out to the computer to retrieve its software
  • Fixed a bug during maintenance sessions, Field at index '1' does not exist..., where retrieving the list of installed chocolatey software would fail
  • Resolved a potential issue around re-acquiring ephemeral agent sessions under concurrent script execution scenarios
  • Fixed a bug when re-authenticating to ImmyBot where you wouldn't be redirected to the page you were previously on due to the URL not including query parameters

# 0.47.0

Released 2021-10-28

# Maintenance Execution Order


You can now specify the order in which maintenance items are executed by navigating to "/deployments/ordering" or by clicking the "Ordering" link in the side nav bar under "Deployments".

Maintenance Execution Order

  • Fixed an issue with updating the "Installer Executable Path / Installer File" field on the software version form where it would revert to the previous value
  • Fixed a bug where software marked as "Download Only" would attempt to run its configuration task. Software that is set to download only no longer adds an action for its configuration task.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the azure user sync to stop running. When it encounters an issue syncing a specific tenant, it will now log some details that will help the immy team determine why it is failing and then continue attempting to sync other tenants.
  • Fixed a bug with running Get-AgentInstallScript where it would return the error Tenant # is not linked to a client for the specified provider
  • Fixed a bug saving the onboarding form where we were not disabling the onboarding save buttons while the page was still loading. Attempting to to save before the page was loaded was causing an error to be thrown
  • Fixed a bug where the branding list was showing brandings as "Expired" when they actually weren't
  • Fixed a bug where updating brandings with no selected tenant would cause the branding to get deleted instead

  • Fixed a bug where after uploading and analyzing software, the analyzed upgrade code was not executing the search to see if it was found on existing machines
  • Fixed a bug on the computer list page where a computer's online status was considering disabled links. Since a disabled link can result in stale data, we no longer use them to determine the online status of a computer.
  • Fixed a bug with clicking the "Delete Offline Agent" button on the computer agents tab
  • Fixed a bug where default configuration task parameters were missing when deploying from the computer software tab
  • Fixed a null reference exception that was occurring when attempting to run a script against an offline computer

# 0.46.1

Released 2021-09-14

# Bug Fixes


Fix ImmyAgent bug which would cause Temp PS1 path to not be created.

# 0.46.0

Released 2021-09-14

# Ephemeral Agent Script Execution


ImmyBot now uses "Ephemeral Agents" for script execution.

This new method will normalize the time it takes to run scripts across all RMM Providers. The initial payload to start the ephemeral agent will be sent through the RMM, but then all subsequent scripts will communicate directly with the ephemeral agent.

An Ephemeral Agent is a lightweight PowerShell script that establishes a direct connection with the ImmyBot backend via Polling or SSE (Server-Sent Events) to receive script payloads to execute. Script output is then sent through an Azure Service Bus for high throughput handling. The ImmyBot backend manages the lifetime of ephemeral agents and is able to re-use them efficiently.

# Script Path Preference


It is now easier to whitelist ImmyBot in your Antivirus. The Ephemeral Agent will use a script path containing a hash unique to your instance that you can rekey yourself.

image

# Default Software Scripts


You can now specify install, uninstall, post-install, post-uninstall, upgrade, and test scripts directly on the software.

This reduces duplication for software where the versions use the same exact scripts while also making software easier to manage.

Considerations

  1. If the software has a script and the desired version has a script, then the script on the version takes precedence. (e.g. the version's install script will be used instead of the software's install script if both are present)
  2. If the version does not have a script, then we will attempt to use the one on the software if the script is present.

# Custom Download Script


You can now assign a "Download Installer" script to software that will be used instead of the core Immy download installer logic. This is valuable when downloading 3rd party installers from URLs that require authentication or specific headers.

# Other Improvements


  • Combined RMM Links and PSA Links into a single Integrations page under Settings
  • Improved Tarma InstallMate package analyzer detection
  • Added documentation for Ephemeral Agent & ServiceBus Script-Result handler info tiles in System Status page to better explain what they mean, and how to discern specific pieces of information from them
  • Fixed an issue where password parameters with $ characters were getting stripped ServiceBus Script-Result handling & Ephemeral Agent sessions are enabled by default for new Instances
  • Integration type capabilities are now listed on the New Integration page
  • ServiceBus Script-Result handling can now process results at a much higher throughput & more reliably than before.
  • ServiceBus Result latency has been improved to around ~100ms under normal load conditions from ~3s.
  • Implemented caching for tenant preferences to reduce database calls during maintenance sessions
  • Reduced some complexity in how we structure RMM Links and PSA Links (now known as integrations)
  • Reworded script-start-failed log to not include integration link name since the integration is not responsible for starting the scripts
  • Added basic logging of inventory script names and any errors to session logs

  1. Added a cloud / computer type selector to the sessions and actions tabs.
  2. Replaced the tasks tab with an actions tab
  3. Added a schedules tab

The actions tab shows the latest actions performed against a computer or tenant. This table can be used to help identify issues with software and maintenance tasks.

# Example 1: Find all computers that have a large number of failing actions

Filter the status column to non-compliant and then group by the computer.

image

# Example 2: Find software and maintenance tasks that are failing across many computers

image

# Dashboard - Load Top 10 Non-Compliant Items

# Quick Deploy


Deploying software for a specific computer is now easier. Located at the top of the Software tab on the computer details page. Tell your techs to use this form if they need to deploy software to a specific computer.

image

After selecting a software / maintenance task that you want to deploy, a session will be kicked off to determine if the computer has any applicable deployments. If a deployment is found, then you'll be presented actions for that deployment.

image

If a deployment is not found, then you are asked if you would like to create one.

image

If the selected item requires configuration task parameter values or a license, then you still need to create the deployment from the traditional deployment page. We plan on expanding on this to allow supplying a license and parameters directly on this form.

image

# Computer List Search Improvements


Searching for computers is now much faster after some internal refactoring of how the data was stored. We removed the need to select a filter so you can now search by any of the available fields specified in the placeholder.

# Inventory Results over Service Bus (Beta)


Inventory scripts sent over any Rmm Provider connection will have their results sent over an Azure ServiceBus connection. This allows us to stream results in real-time, eliminating message size constraints. Since this is a new feature, you must manually enable this functionality under preferences. In a later release, we will extend the service bus script result handling to all scripts ran through Immy

image

# Bug Fixes And Other Improvements

The Immy Agent now gets updated during full maintenance sessions. You can also manually trigger an update by going to the computer's details page and under the Agents tab.

image

# Assignment Override


As part of a refactor of the computer software tab, we added the ability to override assignments. This is useful when resolving one off computers that do not need to be part of a larger assignment.

image

# Getting Started Wizard


A new 'Getting Started' feature is available, which guides the user through first-time ImmyBot setup and installation of the ImmyAgent on a device using PPKG. You can access this feature by clicking the "show Getting Started Wizard" link under your user email dropdown in the top right.

image


A recommended deployment is a global deployment that is accessible to all ImmyBot users. Recommended deployments represent common scenarios that most companies use. You can approve / dismiss recommended deployments. Approving a deployment will allow it to be considered as a valid deployment when running maintenance. Dismissing a deployment will disallow it from being considered during maintenance.

When a new recommended deployment is added, you will receive a notification, "You have new recommended deployments". Clicking this link will prompt you to approve / disapprove the deployment.

You can manage the approval of all recommended deployments from the main Deployment List page by clicking the "View Recommended Deployments" button at the top.

  • ImmyAgent Service is now a single exe file
  • ImmyAgent gracefully shuts down quickly preventing connection errors on service restart because the previous process is still running
  • Better online/offline tracking: ImmyAgent now sends messages to the backend to indicate when it connects and disconnects. The prevents issues where a restart may not be noticed on machines that reboot quickly because the IoTHub filters out connection events that happen quickly.
  • When joining the domain from the Onboarding screen, the logs indicate what domain controller is being used to fetch the offline domain join token
  • When scripts are running in the Metascript context, we say execution is happening in the ImmyBot Backend instead of 'Server' as it could be confused with a server managed by ImmyBot

# 0.42.1

# Improvements and Bug Fixes


  • Fixed an issue on the deployment form when invalid text would incorrectly show up when a chocolatey or ninite software was selected
  • Fixed an issue that was preventing successful installs of ninite and chocolatey software

# 0.42.0

# Tenant Details Page


Added a tenant details page similar to the computer details page. The tenant list page link has been moved out from Settings -> Tenants to the top level in the navbar.

  1. Maintenance sessions run directly against a tenant can be viewed in the Sessions tab.
  2. Assigned Tenant Maintenance Tasks can be viewed in the Tasks tab.
  3. The Terminal tab is auto scoped to run meta scripts for a particular tenant.
  4. The Mappings tab allows you to link/un-link a tenant from RMM Providers.
  5. The edit tab allows you to change the name of the tenant.

image

# Software Providers


# What is a Software Provider?

A Software Provider tells ImmyBot how to install/uninstall a software. Currently, Local, Global, Chocolatey and Ninite are supported as providers. You can assign the available providers to a software on the software's edit page. A local/global software will inherently be a Local/Global Provider if there are software versions present.

image

The provider that is used during a maintenance session can be specified on the deployment. For example, if the Chocolatey provider is added on a software and is selected on a deployment, then Immy will always attempt to install/uninstall the software through Chocolatey.

image

If a specific provider is not selected, then the software will be installed/uninstalled using the following logic:

  1. If the deployment is set to install the latest version or update if found, then the provider that contains the latest software version will be used.
    • e.g. If chocolatey has a newer software version then global, then chocolatey will be used.
  2. For any other desired state, the local/global provider will be used (normal behavior).

If the Ninite integration is enabled and Ninite is set as an alternate provider, then Ninite will take priority over Local/Global and Chocolatey.

# Detection Outdated


Added a flag to computers to indicate that a deployment for the computer has been updated and that detection should be re-run to ensure the computer is up to date.

image

# Computer Software Page Updates


Added more tabs to filter the computer's software list

image

# Unassignable

The unassignable tab lists all software that exist on the computer but does not exist in ImmyBot as managed Software.

# Assignable

The assignable tab now has two potential actions: Quick Assign and Assign. Quick Assign will immediately create a deployment targeting the primary person (if present) or the computer. A detection only session will also start immediately to determine the current state of the software. Assign will open the New Deployment Page and allow you to create a new assignment for the software. Quick assign is currently only available for software that do not have a configuration task or a license.

image

# Assigned

The assigned tab now provides 3 potential actions: Action to take (Install, Update, Enforce, etc), Re-run detection (refresh icon), and Manage (edit deployment)"

image

# 0.41.0

Released 2021-03-23

# Software Icons

QOL feature where we added the ability to upload icons to software that can be displayed in software lists.

We will incrementally start adding icons to Global Software and displaying the icons on various pages where software are shown, such as the Dashboard and Maintenance Session Details pages.

image

image

# Media


ImmyBot now officially supports uploading media that can be used in Maintenance Tasks as file parameters. Existing media can now be selected from the media library for re-use on multiple maintenance tasks.

image

# Detection Only Maintenance Sessions


Detection only maintenance sessions are replacing the "Preview" feature where we determine what needs to be done for a computer to be compliant without actually enforcing compliance. The benefit over the old "preview" is that detection only maintenance sessions will persist to the database.

A detection only session will gather all deployments for a computer, and if the computer is online, it will then run detection to determine compliance. If the computer is offline, it will only determine what the desired state is.

# Additional computer software list filtering


Added additional filtering to the computer's software list that allows you to filter by managed software, inventoried software, or both. Also, a toggle to show "Hidden Items" was added to show or hide system component inventoried software.

image

# Max session indicator


Updated the Sessions List page headers to show Created Sessions and the max number of running sessions Immy can run concurrently.

image

# Bug fixes and other improvements

# 0.40.2

Released 2021-03-08

# Azure Improvements

----Added the ability to create tenants from your Azure Customers from the Azure page. This is convenient for those only using the ImmyBot Agent, and want to quickly create tenants from their Azure Customers. We also added the Azure Customer Domain to the table since this may be valuable to see.

image

# Chocolatey Improvements


Our managed server that proxies and caches Chocolatey requests can at times be unreliable. Also, this server is not geographically replicated so it is not the best solution for those using ImmyBot outside of the US. We added logic that automatically falls back to using Chocolatey directly whenever our managed server is responding poorly. We also improved our caching which resulted in better response times and fewer requests sent to Chocolatey.

# Script Session Logs Improvements


Updated the styling of script session logs. Clicking "Open Debugger" now copies the script output to the terminal.

image

# Schedule Improvements


The default detection time for new schedules has been changed to 2PM. The default execution time for new schedules has been changed to 10PM. Extra details were added to detection and execution time descriptions on new schedule form.

image

# Deployment Improvements


Deployment options more clearly indicate that they will only affect sessions created on the deployment page and will not be saved with the deployment itself.

image

# Bug Fixes


  • Fixed an issue with the software auto update method Add-SoftwareVersion where it would not accept valid versions.
  • Fixed an issue in Firefox where clicking inside the "Download ImmyBot Agent Installer" dropdown closed the dropdown
  • Fixed issues in computer software list where local and global software/tasks did not have links

Added an alert message on the schedule details page to better clarify why some computers may not have maintenance sessions started.

image

# Improved Custom Detection Script logic


Custom Detection Scripts can now return any output as long as the last word is a valid semantic version.

# Example

write-output "The version found is 1.0.0" ## translates to a detected version of 1.0.0
write-output "Version:`n`n1.0.0" ## translates to a detected version of 1.0.0

# Bug Fixes


  1. Fixed issues with setting appropriate fields when the analyzer returns data for an uploaded software
  2. Fixed an issue where new computers were not getting moved to onboarding after being identified if the computer already existed.
  3. Fixed an issue when re-installing with the uninstall/install method, where the installer failed to downloaded and left the software uninstalled
  4. Replaced the word "undetermined" in Immy emails with a blank
  5. Fixes an issue displaying output logs for cloud scripts on the deployment page
  6. Fixed configuration task search not using case-insensitive searching.
  7. Configuration Task selector now shows 5 most recently updated items by default
  8. Fixed a bug where the view software buttons on the Software List Page were missing
  9. Fixed an issue with software version test script logic that was triggering a re-install when the test script did not explicitly return false. Test scripts must now explicitly return false in order to trigger a re-install. Returning null, "", and 0 will not trigger a re-install.
  10. Enabled the metascript execution context for custom detection scripts
  11. Removed the "all scripts are disabled for task" alert on the deployment form for configuration tasks
  12. Fixed a bug on the deployment form where it would not let you save if you changed the selected maintenance item from one software to another
  13. Fixed a bug on the deployment form where it would not keep your selected desired state when changing the selected maintenance item from one software to another
  14. Fixed a bug preventing the logout button from working

# 0.40.0

Released 2021-02-24

# Dashboard Page


Added a new page that can provide you the latest actions for software and maintenance tasks that were run against a group of computers. The page is intended to help produce audits and show whether or not computers are compliant. This page is a work in progress and will be iterated on over the next few weeks.

image

# How to use it
  1. Select a target scope for the computers you are interested in.
  2. Select one or more software or maintenance tasks
  3. The table will then show you a green check, a red x, or nothing to indicate the compliance of the selected item for that computer
    • A green check indicates that the latest action for the item is compliant.
    • A red x indicates that the latest action for the item is not compliant.
    • Nothing indicates that ImmyBot has not run an action against the computer for the item.

image

  • You can filter the data for each software or maintenance task added by clicking the filter button next to the item's name.
  • You can remove an item from the table by clicking the red X button next to the item's name.

image

  • Click the xlsx button located at the top-right corner of the table to export the data in the table.

image

  • The excel export will contain an "Overview" worksheet, that provides you the compliancy of the selected software and tasks for each computer.

image

  • For each software and task you have in the table, an additional worksheet will be added that provides you information about the latest action taken.

image

# Restart ImmyBot


Added a Restart ImmyBot button to the System Status Page. The System Status Page has been moved to the top of the navbar.

Note: Only MSP Admin users can see this page.

image

# Get-RmmInstallScript Metascript


Exposed new metascript Get-RmmInstallSCript -RmmLinkId <int> that will return a script block containing the powershell install script for the specified rmm link. This is was added to provide an quick way to update the ImmyBot Agent on computers. Long term, we will add auto update logic to the ImmyBot Agents so we don't have to do this.

# Example usage
$RmmInfo = Get-RmmInfo -ProviderType ImmybotAgent
$ScriptBlock = Get-RmmInstallScript -RmmLinkId $RmmInfo.RmmLinkId
Invoke-ImmyCommand $ScriptBlock

# Improved Software Detection


We expanded the "Software Table" detection method to have three search modes: Contains, Regex, and Traditional.

We added a lookup table that can search the known software on your computers to help create better detection methods.

The Contains search mode allows you to target software using a contains search.

image

The Regex search mode allows to target software using regular expressions.

image

The Traditional search mode is the old detection style used by ImmyBot. This method is essentially the same as Regex, but replaces occurrences of _ with ._

# Software Lookup Table

The table will show software already installed on your computers that matches the detection method you provide.

We provide the software name, version, upgrade code (if present), and how many computers in your instance have it installed.

image

# Software Repair


Added a software repair option to the Software Details Page

image

On a computer's software tab, you can now click a repair button that will perform the specified repair logic.

# New Features

Updated the export default name to be meaningful.

image

image

Added a Uri datatype for maintenance task parameters.

image

This parameter is available as a Uri type in power shell for users to us inside of scripts.

image

# Improvements

  • When creating new software versions, we will default the new version's settings to the previous version's settings. This is generally more reliable that using the analysis results by default. If there is no previous version, then we will still use the analysis results as default.

  • Adds the result message to the action column in the deployment excel export to help indicate success/failure.

  • Using the new Uri datatype no additional parsing will be needed to convert a string to a Uri inside of the script.

  • Made the system update page show current version release notes

# 0.37.5

Released 2020-12-08

# New Features

  • Function Scripts! Keep your code dry! You can now call scripts from other scripts. Simply create a new script with category Function, define your logic, and then call the function from another MetaScript.
  • Adds a new column to the session table called "Type" to indicate whether the session was "Scheduled" or "Manual".

# Bug Fixes

  • Fixed duplicate persons issue. Syncing persons from azure users now checks if there is an existing person with the same user principal name (email) and will update that person instead of creating a new one.
  • Fixes an issue where the onboarding form's primary user selector was returning people outside of the selected tenant (Only an issue for MSP users).
  • Fixes a bug where the New and Copy as New buttons were missing from the script selector.
