It would be nice to have the ability to specify the content location of the 'Detection Method Scripts' so that it can be saved to a trusted folder location.
For example, all unapproved scripts are blocked via BIT9 in our environment, but, if we're able to save them to a trusted location, they could be automatically approved.
This feature shipped in build 1.4.8 you can use:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Patch My PC Publishing Service:DetectionMethodScriptsAddtionalSavePath = \\server\examplefolderType = String value
We can look at making it a registry value configuration. I'm not sure if a UI piece would be right if there aren't many other customers requesting this option. I will bring this to our engineering team. I don't think it would be too complex and time consuming from an engineering side.
Yes those are the scripts, which is great, but it would be really helpful if there was a way to change this location to a UNC path in the GUI. Similar to how Licensed Products are handled. As I assume these will be updated with every sync, so manually approving/copying these would become a chore.
If it's not a popular idea, then perhaps a reg or ini hack would suffice!
In build 1.4.7 (https://patchmypc.com/publishing-service-setup-documentation#releasehistory), we save all detection method scripts to the "<InstallDir>\Detection Method Scripts". is this what you are looking for?Improvements
Powershell detection method scripts are now saved in the <InstallDir>\Detection Method Scripts folder.
