Agent updates

The Agent updates page lists all updates that have been made to the agents, such as configuration updates and updates of support files.

When an agent update is created, criteria are set for which devices that the agent will target. When the update has been created, it will be continuously looking for devices that match the configured criteria. This ensures that any new devices that show up in the organization will be updated as well.

The option Allow downgrade of agent version will decide whether the update is allowed to install an earlier agent (with a lower version number) or not.

Note

  • An active agent update will have the status In progress in the Agent updates view, even if no actual update is running at the moment.

  • An agent update will be indicated as successful if it completes its task without failure. For example, if an agent update with the Allow downgrade of agent version option disabled (not selected) targets a computer with a higher agent version number, the update will be marked as successful even though no actual update was made.
