Update Management: Allow the use of further metadata (such as IP address) while scheduling a new deployment, or allow the use of groups
HI, Really liking the product but a couple more things would make things even better.
I have a lot of computers with the same sort short name. This means that in the new portal experience for Update Management I see a lot of computers with the same way and absolutely no way to differentiate them. That's something that can be fixed by changing the short name, but it is making onboarding a lot harder.
Please add the ability to use computer groups again for management of updates.
For example, now I have to update one of those computers which has the same name as all the others. I an make a query for the IP and make a group. But I can't deploy to the group using the new update management experience, and I can't use the old portal either because it appears to be deactivated.
So in short, seems I can't target this one computer currently using Update Management without risking updating one of the other computers which shares the same name.
the functionality to deploy updates to groups are released. You can create searches based on metadata to populate groups.
