Issue/Introduction

Problem:

When deploying Software Delivery jobs there is a visible notification to users even when "prompt user" was not defined.

Environment:

  • Client Automation - All Versions

Cause:

The agent runs in the foreground by default. If you wish the agent to run silent then you have various options depending on your requirements.

Solution:

If you wish for all jobs to be silent unless a prompt needs to be displayed then you need to define the following configuration policy for all your agents.

DSM/Software Delivery/Agent/Job Check: Silent mode = true 

If you wish to retain the default but hide the jobcheck for individual procedures then you need to define the job related macro $#BG as a parameter of the procedure.
