Get Started with the Content App

Use the Content App to work with Fixlets, tasks, and baselines on all BigFix sites, including those that are not yet associated with a WebUI application. Search, filter, and deploy content using standard WebUI tools.


Image of the Content App screen.

New sites, new applications, and apps with new features are highlighted in the Featured Content section. Click the tiles in the WebUI Apps section to open WebUI applications. Operators see sites on the Content application's white list of permissible sites. Master operators see all sites that are not part of the WebUI App collection.

Note: Not all Fixlets are deployable. Do not use the Content App to deploy Fixlets that:
  • Contain or employ JavaScript, for example, JavaScript that takes action or secure action.
  • Use Session Relevance.
  • Use specialized Console APIs.

The Fixlets will not run, and you will receive no errors or any other indication that something is wrong until devices start reporting back that there is a problem. If you are not sure whether a Fixlet is deployable or not, run it from the BigFix Console to avoid unpredictable behavior.

Operator Access
The below list associates the activities that an operator can perform with the type of operator.
  • Non-master operators cannot access BES support in the WebUI application as it is intended only for the Master Operators.
  • Master operators can view all the external sites, except for the two below listed sites in Table 1.
  • Non-master operator can only access the external sites that they have visibility. See the accessible Whitelist sites listed in Table 2.
