Deploy a package to collect data from devices
You can use the
Opticspackage deploy feature to remotely and securely run a process (for example, a Python script) on
Opticsdevices to collect and store desired data in a specified location for further analysis by security administrators. For example, you can run a process to collect browser data. You can use the
Opticsdata collection packages that are available in the management console or you can create your own.
When you deploy a package to devices that are offline, the deployment will wait for those devices to come online for a specified period.
- If desired, create a package that will execute on a device, collect specific data points, and output that data to a local or server location that you will specify in the steps below. For more information about creating a custom package, visit support.blackberry.com/community to read article 66563.
