Watchman Monitoring provides methods for scripted installation of the Monitoring Client via the command line or automated deployment tool(s) for every platform.
Scripted installations can be more effective than managing individual group installers.
A deployment script can be found on your Mac installers page.
Enter the desired Group name, then click Download.
Optionally, you can click Select to select the entire script to copy to your clipboard.
The client can be easily deployed via tools such as Addigy, Apple Remote Desktop, munki, DeployStudio, Jamf Pro, Puppet, Solarwinds Mac-MSP, etc.
The group can be set during installation using the
msiexec command with the following structure:
msiexec /i "https://SUBDOMAIN.monitoringclient.com/downloads/MonitoringClient.msi" /quiet CMDLINE="Group=""Pretendco"""
The Group for the computer can be set ahead of installation by writing a Group name to a temp file.
sudo echo "GROUP_NAME" > /var/tmp/ClientGroup-proposal.txt
Visit your dashboard Installation Instructions for a configurable script.
