What's New

This page outlines the recent changes made to the Base SDK.


Extensible command line interfaces access support

The previously internally available feature for accessing IPC interfaces through command line (using aex-helper in the debugging mode) was improved to allow custom interfaces support.
The custom interfaces support can be added using CLI plug-ins registered with aex-helper. A plug-in is basically a dynamically loadable object that contains special code for parsing the command line arguments into function parameters and then presenting the ouput to the user.

Message Queue APIs become public

The message queue framework which is used as inter-process transport by the Altiris Agent IPC framework was changed to become publicly available and re-usable. An article has been added to explain how to use the new APIs.

New NS Manager convenience APIs

AgentSDK::ANSManager class now has several additional functions which allow obtaining the URL-s for the following HTTP services on the server:
  • posting events
  • creating resources
  • getting information about a package

Is there a guide for the SDK or the COM API for the Altirs Agent for Windows?

Unfortunately there is no guide for the COM API or the SDK for SMA for Windows for now.
