Monitoring the results on the master

Up to now, the event data is only available locally on the agent. However, to be able to print reports on this topic and to view them in the console these events must be specifically uploaded to the master and its database. This is done via an operational rule:

Note:

By default, these events are configured to be uploaded every 24 hours, that is, at midnight to the master database. If the agent is not running at this time the events will be uploaded at agent startup. If this schedule does not correspond to your requirements you can assign it a different schedule. Information about how to do so, you can see in the Configuration Management topic.

  1. Go to the Operational Rules top node in the left window pane.
  2. Click Create Operational Rule .
    The Properties dialog box appears.
  3. Enter Upload Resource Management Events into the Name box and then click OK.
    The new operational rule is added to the list of members in the right pane.
  4. Double-click the operational rule.

    In the now displayed General tab, you can review the basic information of the operational rule.

  5. Go to the Steps tab.
  6. Click Add Step to add the first step.
    The Select a Step pop-up window appears. It displays the list of available steps in its Available Steps box.
  7. Double-click the Event Log Manager folder.
  8. Select the step Upload Events and click Add .
    The Properties dialog box appears.
  9. In the Model Name box select the Windows Devices value and leave all other boxes as they are.
  10. Click OK to confirm the parameters and OK again to confirm the new step.
    The operational rule is now configured and must be assigned to the target, that is, the group All Devices .
  11. Go to the Assigned Objects > Assigned Device Groups node in the left window pane under your newly created operational rule.
  12. Select Assign Device Group .
    A confirmation window appears.
  13. Click Yes , to activate the operational rule automatically.
    The Select a Device Group pop-up window appears.
  14. Select the group All Devices from the list.
  15. Click OK to confirm the assignment.
  16. Follow the execution of the operational rule under the assigned group.

    Once the status is Executed for all members of the all data is uploaded.

  17. To verify this go to the Alerts and Events node of the master.

    This node displays the list of all events registered by the event log models for the selected device group.

  18. To display the device management events instead of the default software distribution events select Windows Devices from the Model Name drop-down list.
  19. Click Find.
    The following table will now display all events that were uploaded and are continued to be uploaded.

Now all data is uploaded and ready and reports can be generated.
