Managing configurations

Configurations are defined in each Tanium solution. If configuration approval is enabled, a banner appears in the solution to alert the user that configuration changes are pending approval in Endpoint Configuration when a user creates or changes a configuration. For example, if a Threat Response profile is changed, a banner appears to alert the user that a configuration change has been made and requires approval in Endpoint Configuration before it can be deployed to endpoints.

When you create or change a configuration, the configuration appears in Endpoint Configuration in the pending state. After a configuration approver approves the pending configuration, the configuration is deployed to the targeted endpoints.

For example, if a Tanium Patch Administrator makes or updates Scan configurations in Patch, the new and changed scan configurations appear in Endpoint Configuration as Pending. The data in these configurations is not deployed to the targeted endpoints until they have been approved.
