K1000 user based software install based on AD group membership?

Hi there guys.


Wondering if the k1 does install and uninstall of software, based on the AD group membership of users.

My k1 is connected to our active directory DC. 

Could I initiate a software install to the machine when the user logs in, if the user is in a certain group?

Just wondering if we can deploy software using this system.

Hey akmagnum,

One of many ways to achieve this is by using labels. You may want to create 2 labels:

  • LDAP Label - LDAP sync to the intended AD users group
  • Device smart Label - Use the following SQL query below to filter the targeted machines based on the LDAP label

SELECT U.FULL_NAME, U.EMAIL, M.NAME, M.IP, M.MAC, L.NAME
FROM USER AS U
JOIN USER_LABEL_JT AS UL ON U.ID = UL.USER_ID
JOIN LABEL AS L ON L.ID = UL.LABEL_ID
JOIN MACHINE AS M ON M.ID = U.PRIMARY_DEVICE_ID
WHERE L.NAME LIKE "%LDAP_LABEL_NAME%"

After which, you will be able to schedule MI/scripting scoped to the smart label for software deployment needs.
