We have a policy where all software for internal use has to be repackaged and also the users are not permitted to install, updated, alter software instalations on their workstations.
We were about to package recent version of sourcetree for our use, but it trouble us in numerous ways.
1/ it installs itself to user space
Is there a way to tell it otherwise ?
2/ it requires the user to log in to atlassian homepage and register there their account (which is something most of the users are not able to do at all because of blocked access)
How to permit users the use of source tree if they are unable to access atlassian homepage ? how to go around user account registration process ?
3/ it is about to download tools from outside (which is again prohibited and blocked)
How to disable this tendency of the software ? So there will be no claim to do that neither the failure when its attempt is blocked and eventually timesout ?
4/ it is trying to update itself (which is completely inacceptable to let the users to exchange the code base of the installed software)
how to disable the update options tab at all ?
(I will omit objections about that it is able to install version which is not officially provided neither referenced on sourcetree hoepage)
5/ how is this software meant to be used in enterprise companies where there are network access restrictions and policies for software installation ?
Can you please explain the design ?
Hi Roman, at the moment that's the expected behaviour for the installer. It's not possible to select a different install folder and users need to register the application with their Atlassian account.
We're currently working on a Sourcetree for Windows Enterprise Support installer that will have into account all the feedback we're getting from our enterprise users, like installing into a different directory or network restrictions, but at the moment we still don't know when it will be available. If you want to find out more about it, you can join the Sourcetree beta program.
Hope that helps!
