Connectors page

Connectors are used to connect to other 1E and third party systems and populate repositories. For example, syncing inventory data from Configuration Manager into an inventory repository.

The following inventory connectors are provided by Tachyon out-of-the-box.

Repositories page

Repositories are used by applications to process and store information. For example the Patch success application uses both an inventory and a BI repository to process the information needed to report on how successful patching is in your enterprise.

Provider configuration page

Providers can be used by applications to leverage external tools to perform specific operations. For example the reclaim provider enables software to be uninstalled, thereby extending the functionality of the platform to include uninstallation.

Custom properties page

Custom properties are generally associated with Explorer and can be used when setting coverage tags to target Instructions to particular devices. The custom properties must be defined by a custom properties administrator before they can be used to tag devices or used to set the coverage of Instructions.

This is done from the Settings→Configuration→Custom properties page, which can be viewed by users with any of the following roles:

  • Global Administrators
  • Custom Properties Administrators

The following headings show the steps to add, edit and delete properties and set property values. For a quick tutorial on adding properties see Adding properties - tutorial.

Agent installer page

The Agent installer page is part of a feature that is currently under development and for use with the new Tachyon Discovery product, which is due for release in the coming months. To enable Tachyon Agents to be rolled out across a network in conjunction with the network discovery piece, this page lets you select the Tachyon Agent installer you want to use for the installation.

Consumers page

The Consumers page lets you register the consumers that can access Tachyon. To enhance the security of the Tachyon system, only consumers that have been registered on this page will be allowed to access Tachyon.

Tachyon can integrate with third-party applications to enable its instruction-based investigation and resolution capabilities to be leveraged by other products. Some examples include: the Nomad Content Pause and Tachyon Configuration Manager integration features.

Components page

The Components page displays the configuration options and activity for all the components that make up the Tachyon 4.0 platform.

License information page

The License information page shows details of the current license status and lets you reactivate your license if any changes have been made.
