Community Tour

Search and Download Content

We have lots of fixlets, relevance statements, analyses and BigFix Inventory catalog signatures to search through here on You likely landed on our site because you're looking for content and resources related to BigFix (IBM Endpoint Manager) and/or BigFix Inventory (formerly Software Use Analysis). Well you're in the right place. Use our search engine to engage in our community by finding various pieces of content that your fellow community members have created and contributed to this online content database.
BigFix Analysis (BFI) signature content is a recent addition to the our site and we hope you find the new content useful. Most features in this tour apply to both the BigFix content as well as the BFI signature content, but where there are differences we'll do our best to call them out. For example, versioning is not currently supported for BFI signature content and signature content can be downloaded to an xml or zip file instead of a BES file.

Upload and Share Content

A vital part of our community is user generated content. We strive to make it extremely easy to upload and share your custom built content. Fixlets, Tasks, and Analyses as well as simple Relevance Statements and BFI Signatures are easy to upload and share with the rest of the community.
For BFI signature content export, look at the Catalog Customizations screen under the Management menu on the BFI console.

Organize your favorite BigFix content

You can group your favorite content using Site or subscribe sites created by other users. Sites are essentially groups of content. They allow you to organize your favorite content for quick reference and downloading.
Current BFI signature content is not included in this feature, but look for future website updates that will allow you to better organize and manage your signature content.

Content Creation Wizards for BigFix Content

Don't have a BigFix Console, no problem! We're always adding new ways to auto-magically create fixlets which you can download to use within your deployments. Simply answer a few questions in the wizard and hit create, you will immediately be forward to your newly created content. This list is short for now, but we're always coming up with new ideas. If you have an idea for a content creation wizard, contact us and we'll built it.

Note for BigFix Inventory signatures you do need to use the BFI console for signature creation. Using the BFI console can help you normalize your content against the existing content imported from IBM. In the future, if there is a need, we may provide a way to create BFI signature content outside of the BFI console.
