Permissions to push Client Agent installs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

      We need to give a user the permission to right click a computer and run the Install Client Agent Permission.

      However I have looked through all the permissions and cannot see which one(s) would be required so they are able to perform that task.

      I thought it might be under the Collection object but there is no "Deploy Client Agent" permission.

      Anyone know which permissions are needed please?

    Thanks

  • Infastructure Administrator is probably going to be an overkill to start with. The only permissions required for client push to be available is the following on the Collection:

    • Read
    • Modify Resource

    And the following on Site

    • Read

    I would start by copying the remote control security role (Since this group only has permissions on collection) remove the remote control related setting and add the above permissions.

  • The Infrastructure Administrator security role includes the required permissions to manage client push installation. You could start with this and then create a customised security role to suit your requirements.

  • Thanks.

    For some strange reason, when we push clients using the wizard, we have to specify "Install the client software from the specified site" otherwise we always get an error. In addtion to the above permissions I also had to add the site to their scope and all was fine.

    Cheers
