Description

This task will allow non-master operators to add "Client Settings" to computers under their purview.  They will only be able to deploy this task to computers they have access to.

 

Note:   Because computer settings are usually created via a specific mechanism of the console an additional step will need to be taken after this deployment is complete in order for the setting to be visible under the "Computers" navigator item in the console.  Once deployment of this task is completed, a user must manually assign a value to this setting on any computer (even the original one that this task was deployed to).

What this does is force the server to create a "Property" in the properties repository so the value of this setting can be displayed using the "Column Picker".  If this last step is not done the setting will exist in the computer, but it will not be visible in the console.
