Assign a task based upon tag?

Jump to solution

I don't see this in ePO 5.1, so it's probably an enhancement request.

Currently we have the nice/lovely policy assigning via Assignment Rules

But I don't see any such ability for tasks (have to do it based upon system tree grouping).

Is that correct?

Was hoping to have to avoid grouping things for policy/tasks but it looks like I may be forced to anyway.

That's correct - you assign it to a group, and then on the next page you have the option to select the tags you wish it assigned to. So if you wanted to assign the task to *every* machine with a particular tag,  you would assign it to the top of the tree - usually the "My Organisation" object - and then choose the tag(s) you want.

This is already in ePO, uness I'm misunderstanding... when you assign a client task, at the bottom of the page there's a "Tags" section that allows you to assign the task only to machines with a particular tag.

Is that what you were looking for?

No, you're right about what I want, I just don't see it in ePO 5.1

I go into the Client Task Catalog -> VSE 8.8

I find my task and on the right-hand side I have 4 options:

Delete

Duplicate

Assign

Share

When I click Assign, it takes me to one screen that says:

Select a Group to Assign the task

and that's my only choice/option, so I have to choose something in the system tree

There's no other option on that page.

I'm on ePO 5.1.0 build 509 using FireFox ESR 24.2.0
