Deploying Printix Client with NinjaOne

· One min read

This post will show you how to deploy the Printix client using NinjaOne Documentation fields and a PowerShell script.

Creating Fields

Creating custom fields in NinjaOne
To create a custom field in NinjaOne go to Administration > Devices and select either Role Custom Fields or Global Custom Fields then select Add.

  • Role Custom Fields are custom fields that are specific to a device role.
  • Global Custom Fields are custom fields that are applicable to all devices and/or to a location and/or organisation
Make sure you add the fields to the roles you want to use them in at Administration > Devices > Roles (for role custom fields).

When you create your custom field you need to make sure that you set the Scripts permission to ensure that you can read or write to the field from your scripts - as appropriate for the script you're using.

We're adding two documentation fields to facilitate this script. You'll need to note your document template id, in the screenshots / our internal use we have a template called "Integration Identifiers" which we use to store any integration identifiers we need to reference in our scripts.

Field LabelField NameField TypeDescription
Printix Tenant IdprintixTenantIdTextHolds the customer's Printix tenant id.
Printix Tenant DomainprintixTenantDomainTextHolds the customer's Printix domain.

The Script


When you run this script you need to pass your document template id. For example, sticking with our example above, you'd run the script with the parameter: -DocumentTemplate Integration Identifiers

The Results

Printix Documentation Fields

Printix Installation Activity

We run this script on a group of devices which don't have the Printix client installed.
