Notify Users - macOS and Windows

Description

The provided Filesets are examples of notifying users, in particular here, a message regarding Fileset status when downloading and installing new Filesets.

 Each Fileset is designed to:

  • Create a continual running service that monitors Fileset changes
  • Where Fileset changes occur, begin monitoring the FileWave Client log file
  • If a number of preset text strings are found in the log file, send this to the Notification Centre
  • Lastly, where another preset text is found, stop monitoring the log file

Each service has been built to be actioned automatically by the user logging in.  Where Filesets are disassociated, each has a pre-uninstallation script to ensure the services should also be removed.
