    Possible to automate applying a policy based on Tags?

    DeanBaker

      Hi everyone.

       

      Is it possible to automate applying a policy based on a certain tagcriteria?

       

      Here is my scenario:

       

      I have an ePO 4.6 console and have a tag criteria that runs every day toidentify laptops (the tag looks for the "Is Laptop = Yes). This partsworks fine and from there I can select all the results and apply a policy. WhatI want to know is if there is a way to automate applying the policy? The policyI am applying is an Agent Update repository list and for laptops I have enabledthe McAfee http site as a fall back. This is disabled off for office based pc’sas we don’t want them going external only internally.

       

      What happened this morning is that a user brought me their laptop saying ithad not been on the network since being built but had been connected to theinternet at their home. I thought DATS would have updated as the http site wasenabled but checking the device I could see it wasn’t. The ePO had the laptop tagassigned to laptop but the policy wasn’t so I have to manually run the tag andselect all the laptops and apply the policy (there were about 100 that didn’thave the policy). So instead of me doing this manually everyday id likeautomate applying the policy if it’s possible?

       

      Thanks and sorry if it doesn’t make a lot of sense.
