The following table describes the available options.

Option Description
Inactive Agents

Unlink agents that have been inactive for X days

Specifies the number of days an agent can be inactive before the manager unlinks the agent. After the specified number of days, the agent is unlinked, but not uninstalled.

Note: automatically tracks unlinked agents and related data for the number of days specified in this option. You cannot turn off this tracking.

Override Blackout Windows
Exclude all agents from software updates

If enabled, this option overrides scheduled blackout windows. It prevents agents from receiving software updates at any time.

Agents will still receive plugin updates and continue to perform scheduled scans.
