Accessing Nexthink Library

Select Nexthink Library from the main menu. You need appropriate permissions to use the Nexthink Library module, refer to the Permissions section.

On the Overview page you can search for the name of the library pack and filter the page using a drop-down menu for library packs that are:

  • Installed and not installed: this filter displays all library packs and content items.

The search and filtering features work for Packs and Content tabs simultaneously.

Nexthink Library overview

Packs tab

The Packs tab displays library packs in the form of tiles. Each tile shows:

  • A title.

  • A short description.

  • The date when Nexthink released or updated the pack.

  • The content items that have already been installed. If there was an interruption to the installation process, the number of installed items might be less than the total number of content items.

  • An Install or Install missing content button, depending on the context. The buttons are visible only if you have Manage all… permissions for all content in the pack. For example, if a library pack contains 5 content items, 2 remote actions and 3 dashboards, you must have Manage all remote actions and Manage all dashboards permissions enabled to install all content items. See the Permissions section for more information.

  • A Details button that links to the details page for the library pack.

Content tab

The Content tab displays all content items available for your Nexthink instance. Additional filtering widgets help you narrow down your search by library pack name and content type.
