Is it possible to force the Kbox agent to download script settings? It would be beneficial in the testing of a new script to be able to do this. Currently having to wait the minimum 15 minutes before agent checks in. Since this check in setting is global, it is not ideal.

I thought that forcing an agent to check in by running "Force Inventory Update" from the Kbox would also update the scripts, but that does not appear to be case.

Thanks in advance.

Deploying Software (Managed Install) and Scripts have their own schedules.
Force Check-in only works for Managed Installs.

You will want to focus on using Managed Installs when possible to deploy software and only look to scripted installs for unique or complex software installs.

You can run scripts in two primary ways:
  1. Run a script automatically or on a schedule and this is by setting up a schedule in a script. That is your schedule for running scripts and it's not related to Force check-ins.
  2. For onesies and twoies for testing to run a script occasionally on demand or to help fix a one time issue; This is the "Run Now" secondary tab. When you need to run a script now, select the "Run Now" tab. Keep in mind you will not want to perform this on too many systems at once so you don't bog down your network.
Sounds like you need to use the "Run Now" option for testing.
