UserInteractionLevel (installation component)

IT Asset Management (Cloud)

Command line | Registry

UserInteractionLevel defines the degree of user interaction with the installation component (this is controlled separately from the inventory component). The preference setting for this component also controls behavior during device reboot. Possible values are:
  • Full: Installation activities operate in full interactive mode. The user has full control over a package‚Äôs installation options, and will see all dialogs during the download, installation and uninstall phases. This is generally not encouraged for packages used with the FlexNet Inventory Agent.

  • Auto: Installation activities are fully displayed, but no user interaction is required unless an error occurs. Installation proceeds automatically, using the default install values. Again, this is not generally recommended for packages used with the FlexNet Inventory Agent.

  • Quiet: No user interface is displayed during operation, and no user feedback or interaction is available.

  • Status: Only status dialogs are displayed (for example, progress dialogs).

Note: A synonym (or alias) for this preference is UILevel.
