User self service snapins site
I would like to propose a snapin user self service site addition to Fog, much like is possible in SCCM.
Basically, a user would be able to log in to it, and choose from a list of available software. Their choice would get added to their computer’s snapin list and it would install in the background for them - and if the machine were re-imaged, it would reinstall for them too.
It would need some form of ‘user to computer’ mapping mechanism, and integration with LDAP/Active Directory would be a must.
Maybe could intergrate User based apps store using AutoIT
Mhhm! I see you make a good point
Problem with that is that in environments where devices are locked down, some admins wouldn’t want some users to be able to install software on machines. For example, I wouldn’t want a student to be able to install something on a teacher’s laptop even though they can log into it.
I’m working on this at the moment, but it’ll be an individual ‘site’ rather than a part of the Fog pages themselves.
I agree. This would make an excellent addition to an already fantastic system! Instead of using a user name (via Active Directory, etc) to log into FOG, let the computer name that’s already registered with FOG be the means of authentication.
Therefore if the computer isn’t registered with FOG, it cannot log into FOG.
