Client Tasks

You can use Client Tasks to manage client computers and their ESET products. There is a set of pre-defined tasks that cover the most common scenarios, or you can create a custom client task with specific settings. Use client tasks to request an action from client computers. To run a client task successfully, it is required to have sufficient access rights for the task and for the objects (devices) that task uses. See the list of permissions for more information on access rights.

Client tasks can be assigned to groups or individual computers. Once created, a task is executed using a Trigger. Client tasks are distributed to clients when the ESET Management Agent on a client connects to the ESMC Server. For this reason, it may take some time for task execution results to be communicated to the ESMC Server. You can manage your ESET Management Agent connection interval to reduce task execution times. To create a new Client Task, select the desired Task Type and click New. The following pre-defined tasks are available for your convenience (each Task Category contains Task Types):
