Installing End-User Notifications

Tanium as a Service automatically handles module installations and upgrades.

Use the Tanium Solutions page to install End-User Notifications and choose either automatic or manual configuration:

  • Automatic configuration with default settings (Tanium Core Platform 7.4.2 or later only): End-User Notifications is installed with any required dependencies and other selected products. After installation, the Tanium Server automatically configures the recommended default settings. This option is the best practice for most deployments. For more information about the automatic configuration for End-User Notifications, see Import and configure End-User Notifications with default settings.
  • Manual configuration with custom settings: After installing End-User Notifications, you must manually configure required settings. Select this option only if End-User Notifications requires settings that differ from the recommended default settings. For more information, see Import and configure End-User Notifications with custom settings.

Before you begin

Import and configure End-User Notifications with default settings

When you import End-User Notifications with automatic configuration, the following default settings are configured:

  • The End-User Notifications service account is set to the account that you used to import the module.
  • The End-User Notifications action group is set to the computer group All Computers.
  • The End-User Notifications tools are distributed to endpoints.
  • A default End-User Notifications profile is created.

To import End-User Notifications and configure default settings, be sure to select the Apply Tanium recommended configurations check box while performing the steps in Tanium Console User Guide: Manage Tanium modules. After the import, verify that the correct version is installed. For more information, see Verify End-User Notifications version.

(Tanium Core Platform 7.4.5 or later only) The procedure to import End-User Notifications with automatic configuration includes an optional step for setting the End-User Notifications action group to target the No Computers filter group. This option prevents End-User Notifications from automatically deploying tools to endpoints. For example, you might want to test tools on a subset of endpoints before deploying them to all endpoints. In this case, you can manually deploy tools to an action group that targets only the subset.

Import and configure End-User Notifications with custom settings

To import End-User Notifications without automatically configuring default settings, be sure to clear the Apply Tanium recommended configurations check box while performing the steps in Tanium Console User Guide: Manage Tanium modules. After the import, verify that the correct version is installed. For more information, see Verify End-User Notifications version.

To configure the service account, see Configure service account.

To configure the End-User Notifications action group, see Configure End-User Notifications action group.

To customize notifications, see Customize the End-User Self Service Client.

Upgrade End-User Notifications

For the steps to upgrade End-User Notifications, see Tanium Console User Guide: Manage Tanium modules. After the upgrade, verify that the correct version is installed. For more information, see Verify End-User Notifications version.
