Auto publish New connection

Am trying to automate all user profile configuration. Part of it i need to configure Pulse Secure with connection with points to our org's server url(basically Add connection GUI option).

I tried using connstore.dat with jamCommand.exe -importFile but its not reflecting. Do you have any suggest?

Regards,
Mahesh

Re: Auto publish New connection

Does the preconfiguration file that you are using with jamCommand have the new URL?
Does the update need to happen outside of a user being connected?

Re: Auto publish New connection

Answer to 1st question YES,
Could you rephrase 2nd question. Who ever login to the machine the the connection should be avilable.


this is content of the .dat file

Re: Auto publish New connection

Using the .dat file is not a valid way to update the configuration.
If an update to the configuration is needed, the change should be made on the appliance and then exported as a preconfiguration file (Users>Pulse Secure Client>Components, select the configuration and then click on "download installer configuration" to have the file for importing using jamCommand); from there, you will import it on the client using the jamCommand.
Making the change on the appliance will also allow connected clients to receive the updated component set (if you have that option enabled).

Re: Auto publish New connection

Generate another preconfig file and import it the same way (easiest/most effective way)
or
enable web-based deployment, make the changes needed on the server that the previously deployed clients are bound against, click on update clients (if 8.2 and higher), and the clients will be updated when they connect

As per the documentation available in Pulse Secure Admin Guide below; 

https://docs.pulsesecure.net/WebHelp/PDC/9.0R1/Content/PDC_AdminGuide_9.0R1/Using_jamCommand_to_Impo... # Using jamCommand to Import Pulse Secure Connections

To install Pulse connections using jamCommand:

  1. Create a .pulsepreconfig file on the Pulse server.

In the Pulse server admin console, click Users > Pulse Secure > Components.

  1. Select the component sets you want, and then click Download Installer Configuration.
  2. Distribute the .pulsepreconfig file to the Pulse endpoints.
  3. Run jamCommand with the .pulsepreconfig file as an option. For example:

On Windows:

\Program Files\Common Files\Pulse Secure\JamUI\jamCommand -importfile myfile.pulsepreconfig

For Windows machines, create a new GPO at Windows Login and push this changes via Script/Batch File.
