To make a managed agent available for packaging and provisioning, you need to upload the managed agent .vai files to JetPatch Agent Manager
Managed agent .vai files are currently created by JetPatch professional services for each agent type according to customer request; you can also develop your own using the Self-Packager. JetPatch Agent Manager comes with some managed agent files pre-installed, but you may need to add additional managed agents or updated versions of managed agents.
A managed agent may be supplied as a single .vai file, or as several .vai files, one for each target OS. In both cases, the agent appears in the Library as a single item, and JetPatch Agent Manager automatically and transparently selects the correct file by OS.
To upload a managed agent:
Prerequisites: User should be with administrator privileges
- Go to JetPatch > Agents & Tools > Tools Catalog > click Upload Image.
- Browse or Drag the .vai file
- Click Upload Image
You can now create management services for this managed agent. If this is an updated version of an existing managed agent, make sure to remove the existing version before applying the new one to any endpoint, in separate provisioning actions.
If the option to upload is not present (requires subscription to agent manager license), copy the VAI file to the following location
