Software Deployment Question
K1000 7.0 No longer respecting "Also restrict by device label" for user downloads
We updated to K1000 version 7 last week and since then the appliance has not been respecting the "Also Restrict by device Label" checkbox for downloads.
Filtering by user group still works fine.
The vast majority of our downloads are available to an "All users" group, which we then subdivide using Device Smart Labels which determine which OS is on a machine (Mainly Mac/Windows). Since the upgrade, users can see all software for both operating systems, no matter what device they have assigned or are signing into the user portal with.
While this is not the end of the world, it has already bamboozled several impatient users who are not reading the "WINDOWS" prefix on the User Download entry ;)
Any questions just let me know.
