Using allowos In Endpoint Searches

The Search Endpoints function, located on the Endpoints page and shown in the figure below, allows the use of the allowos filter in its search string. This filter can be typed into the search field by itself or in conjunction with other search parameters. Refer to the allowos definition in the Query API topic for more information on using the allowos filter.

Search Endpoints

By including the allowos filter in a search string, you will be telling the endpoint search to return only those endpoints that are running the specified operating system or systems. Essentially, you will be turning on a filter specifically for the identified operation system or systems. The name or names of the specified operating systems will be displayed at the right end of the Search Endpoints field, as shown in the figure below.

Search Endpoints OS

Note: Using the allowos filter will only include the specified operating systems. It cannot be used to exclude operating systems. For example, if you type allowos:linux, it will only include endpoints running the Linux operating system in the search results. Typing allowos:linux again will not remove the Linux filter from the search.

The allowos syntax for the Search Endpoints field is as follows:

allowos:[OS Name]

where OS Name is one of the three major operating systems, Linux, macOS, or Windows.

Note: If you wish to include more than one operating system in the filter, you will need to type the allowos command for each operating system you wish to include. For example, if you wish to list results from only those endpoints that are running Linux and Windows, you would first type the command allowos:linux and then type the command allowos:windows.
