Can we please have a library area in the Altiris Console where we can maintain the Targets?

Dear Symantec,

I have often created new Targets in the Altiris Console and then thought, "hey, did I not create that before?" The only way to work out if I have created a Target before is to create a Job of Task and then go through the process of creating a Target and then look through the list of Targets and open them.

Also, there is no way, as far as I can see, of deleting old Targets, either!

This is really inefficient and makes it harder to maintain my Targets (which are reusable).

So, can we please have a library area in the Altiris Console where we can maintain the Targets?

Kindest regards,

QuietLeni

HI,

Currently you can get the list of targets in Report:

Create custom SQL report like this:

SELECT

   [vIt].[Guid] AS [_ItemGuid],

   [vIt].[Name]

FROM

   [vItem] AS [vIt]

WHERE

    [vIt].[ClassGuid] = 'd1d31520-c3ae-471d-be99-d0ff1221bbca'

Order by [vIt].[Name]

To Open Edit for targets use the DirllDown settins like “DoubleClick to Open URL” with following parameters:

Open URL:

/altiris/ns/admin/dialogs/ResourceTargetBuilderControlStandAlone.aspx?mode=all&objId={ItemGuid}

Any chance for two more drilldowns?

- Show Policies using this target

- Delete

I wonder why targets dont have any right-click actions anyway.

Completely agree with you, a shame we can't list them, also renaming should be available !!

Erm, I suppose so, but I would like this built-in to the UI - not an ad-hoc report - this should be in the main product!

What is the point of an Asset Management Solution that needs excessive management? Let me help you.

None that I know of, sadly!

I need to cleanup a bunch of custom targets that we don't use anymore.

The single solution is the "unsupported" way, alter under the SQL base...

What I do, I do not "delete", because I find we got enough "red" in logs, without playing such...

But I alter to rename the filter to prefix them "zzz_" stopping mismatch me...

Of course, must be SQL admin to proceed...

Here the SQL to get the list, you can a clause with your own naming convention prefix you are using (you should use...)

SELECT     ModifiedDate, Alias, Description, Name, Guid, ClassGuid
FROM         vItem
WHERE     (ClassGuid LIKE N'D1D31520-C3AE-471D-BE99-D0FF1221BBCA')
ORDER BY Name

Excellent ideas, folks!  So happy to announce that in ITMS 7.5 SP1, we can now view targets directly under Manage->Computers, and perform operations such as clone them and delete them.  Check it out!

Please see link below for details.

Sherri,

Yes, I was really happy when I saw this in the SP1 User's Group last week, alongside what looks like a load of solutions to other ideas that I put forward (but I am not claiming to have been the instigator of these things)!

Kindest regards,

QuietLeni
