F-Secure Policy Manager Console (FSPMC) lets you count the number of hosts running a particular product (within the Installation tab) but it is not possible to list them. If Root > Installation shows Product "X", Version Y, Count 10, you can't call up a list of machines and review them. They could be anywhere in the domain tree and you have to guess where they might be, or scour the tree domain by domain looking for them.
Although it is conceivable that the Actions column could have a "Report" link to simply view the relevant hosts within a dialog box, it may make more sense to have a "Filter" link, which when clicked shows a prompt for:
The Domain tree heading could have a "Filter" button, with a dialog box that lets you add criteria. By default, this would be empty. An "Add" filter button would permit adding new filters, e.g.
The use of older/newer than and include/exclude should remove the need to deal with difficult and/or conditions (since such a UI makes bracketed logic expressions rather hard!) Possibly a dropdown could offer:
Deciding the precise balance of simplicity and complexity required will be tricky!
In the policy tree, a decision is required as to what the domains and hosts should look like when filtering occurs.
With this filtering feature, you could, for example:
The above could even be done using a "Common queries" button, or through other aspects of the UI. For example, in the Installation tab, the Filter action for a given program/version would create/update the filtering directly without needing to go through the filter configuration dialog.
With a complex policy domain tree, the hosts that interest you are often buried very deep down or spread far apart and this feature would let you round up all the hosts that meet a particular set of criteria.
The filter should also allow you to apply commands to filtered hosts: the Operations tab for example would only apply to the filtered hosts when a filter is active.
