Agreed on how much this would simplify our design and permissions!
Unfortunately, right now the only way to do this would be to utilize session groups, but I see you say it would mess up your session groups. How are you currently sorting your sessions? If it is entire clients that need consent, wouldn't sorting session groups by client make the most sense so you could turn the feature on/off per client. In addition, if there is the need to have unattended access, you can set it to automatically consent after xx seconds (for maintenance windows, etc.) or IIRC it can auto-consent when no user is logged in.
There is definitely MASSIVE improvement that can be made in the permissions area in ScreenConnect, but you can definitely get it to perform as expected with a bit more up-front work than would be necessary if the setting options were what they could be.
Along the same lines, I feel like the ability to have time frames for session group filtering as well as report manager selection would be so helpful!
Session Group: Agents Installed within past xx Days
Report Manager: Host Session Connections within (Last 7 Days, Last Month, Last Quarter, etc)
I imagine both of these are hinging on the same underlying limitation so fixing one would allow for the other to also be easily completed.
I am also looking for the ability to do this so that we can setup a group of "stale" sessions for deletion and keep our ScreenConnect instance as clean as possible. If that machine has been offline for 60-90 days, I'd say it needs to be removed, but right now it's not easy to find those without scrolling through every session.
I feel like it should just be host all without consent and then only on the ones you want to have to allow consent get added...
That would be a great feature. Not sure if possible, but if so - I could definitely see the use cases!
This is something that would help immensely. I have been trying to figure out a good way to do this for quite some time and have been unable to do anything solid short of workarounds creating more work for myself or my techs.
