Endpoint Inspector Count and Cost
The macOS Inspector is currently in Beta, allowing you to explore its capabilities and provide feedback. During this beta period, usage of the macOS Inspector is free of charge. Please be aware that once the macOS Inspector is progresses towards its Productionrelease, it will be billed as an Endpoint Inspector, per unit, according to your agreement with Liongard. Usage beyond the contracted amount will be charged on your monthly invoices. To avoid any unexpected charges, we encourage you to monitor your usage and plan accordingly as we approach the transition of this Inspector into production.
To view your Endpoint Inspector count per Environment, navigate to Admin > Environments > Review the "Endpoint Inspector" column
To view the number of included Endpoint Inspectors and your minimum commitment for Endpoint Inspectors, navigate to your username in the upper right-hand corner and select Company Settings.
Please contact your Account Manager for additional contract and pricing details.
The macOS Inspector is auto-discovered upon deployment of an Endpoint Agent on a macOS system.
Full instructions on Endpoint Agent deployment on a macOS system and its minimum system requirements can be found here.
After the Endpoint Agent has been installed, the macOS Inspector will be Auto-discovered and will need to be activated. Navigate to Total Discovered Systems on the Liongard home screen, or Admin > Discoveries.
Locate the newly discovered macOS Inspector on the Discoveries Dataview Table and verify that the correct Environment has been selected for the Inspector. Then, in the Actions column select the three dots and select Activate. Your macOS Inspector will be activated and the initial inspection will automatically be launched in about a minute.
This Inspector was custom-built to take advantage of least privileged best practices. The Endpoint Agent can be deployed using any standard user-level account, whether it be a local account on the system or a domain user account.
If you would like ALL Endpoint Inspectors to auto-activate after Auto-discovery, navigate to your Username > Company Settings and turn on the Endpoint Auto-Activation toggle as shown. After this toggle has been enabled, individual Environments can be excluded from the Endpoint auto-activation process by adding them to the list below the toggle.
Please keep in mind that Endpoint Inspectors are billed per unit, and usage beyond your minimum commitment (also found on the Company Settings screen) will incur additional costs.
Enabling auto-activation means that Endpoint Inspectors will be automatically Auto-discovered, activated, and billed accordingly.
If your macOS workstation is offline and misses multiple inspections, Liongard will only process missed inspections in the last 24 hours.
To remove a macOS Inspector from Liongard, complete the following steps:
- Uninstall the Endpoint Agent
- After the Endpoint Agent is uninstalled from the target machine, log into Liongard and disable the Inspector.
