Servoyant Browser is a 3rd party add-on for Servoyant, co-developed in conjunction with Index eBusiness in Eurpoe, that's geared towards providing an alternative interface to Servoyant for users who prefer the speed of a Windows client. While it provides limited functionality as compared to the full Servoyant web interface, it is a perfect tool for technicians who primarily function in a helpdesk or end user support role. The Servoyant Browser is available FREE to Servoyant users.

The Servoyant Browser application is the perfect example showing what can be accomplished with the Servoyant API that was released in version 5.2 and optimized in Servoyant 5.3. Depending entirely on direct calls to Servoyant via the API, the Servoyant Browser provides a .Net presentation layer for Servoyant with the following features:

  • Support for both the US and UK platforms
  • Direct authentication to Servoyant
  • Rendering of the Site Tree and Systems Dashboard
  • Remote connection to a device utilizing the ServoyantRC, LogMeIn, or the defined connection protocol for the device
  • Customizable dashboard layout that allows hiding of columns, grouping, and conditional formatting
  • Quick search
  • Access to Servoyant Device Views for job scheduling and deep dive into device telemetry
  • Support for Servoyant dynamic device groups
