Release Notes

End-User Notifications overview

End-User Notifications is a shared service that is used by other Tanium products, such as Tanium™ Deploy, Tanium™ Patch, and Tanium™ Protect to notify users about system actions. It is also used by Deploy for self service capabilities.

End-User Notifications

When you use End-User Notifications with other solutions, you can create notification messages to notify the user of system actions or user requirements.

End-User Self Service

When you use End-User Notifications with Deploy, you can configure the Self Service Client application for Windows endpoints. With the Self Service Client application, you can publish software to endpoints so that users can install software on their own without the need for IT to install for them. For more information, see Customizing the end-user interface.

Integration with other Tanium products

End-User Notifications integrates with other Tanium products to provide additional features.

Deploy

End-User Notifications is used by Deploy to notify users about deployments to Windows endpoints, and to configure End-User Self Service capabilities. You can create a notification message with your deployment to notify the user that the system is about to begin a deployment, has completed a deployment, and if postponements are enabled, to give the user the option to postpone the deployment or restart now. For more information, see Tanium Deploy User Guide: Windows endpoint restarts or Tanium Deploy User Guide: Using the Self Service Client application.

Patch

End-User Notifications is used by Patch to notify users about deployments to Windows endpoints. You can create a notification message with your deployment to notify the user that the system is about to begin a deployment, has completed a deployment, and if postponements are enabled, to give the user the option to postpone the deployment or restart now. For more information, see Tanium Patch User Guide: Endpoint restarts.

Protect

End-User Notifications is used by Protect to instruct users to enable encryption, and to notify users before a restart. You can create a notification message in the FileVault policy that displays either at log out or during the next log in. Users can dismiss the message multiple times if the FileVault policy allows it. For more information, see Tanium Protect User Guide: Create a FileVault policy. You can also create a notification message that displays to the user after a BitLocker policy is enforced. The message notifies users before the computer is restarted to prepare their drives for encryption. For more information, see Tanium Protect User Guide: Create a BitLocker policy.
