SWG "Silent download"

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Dear All,

by default if we use malware scan, there is a progressbar when downloading files what shows the status of the malware scan. It's ended by a "Click here to download" link. Unforunatelly our customer has several automatic processes what use automatic downloads, and these automatic programs/scripts won't be able to "click" on the download link. Is it possible that the download starts automatically (instead of download link) at the end of malwarescan?

Thanks in advance!

Viktor

No. If you would like this feature you can submit this as an idea for review by the product team.

I would suggest testing out to see what actually happens here. Typically in a situation where the SWG can tell it isn’t able to display the patience page to the client browser the Web Gateway will actually stream the file to the client rather than use the patience like you would see when a client performs a download directly from the browser.  This will happen with http tasks that run in the background, if it's a download manager using http etc., as it sounds like this is some automated task that could be running in the background I'm wondering if there is a chance this will already work for you.

Silent download is working. I've tested it with windows update and it worked automatically via SWG.
