This is a full platform AND Agent feature release, therefore customers should expect very brief disconnects of the Agent during the update window.

Software Management

Datto RMM's new Software Management feature allows administrators to easily keep their endpoints updated with the latest security fixes. It has the following capabilities:

  • Automatic, policy-based approach to 3rd-party software update management which keeps Windows and macOS endpoints updated with the latest versions of frameworks and applications, such as Adobe Flash or Oracle Java.
  • Application update approval can be configured and applications can be installed on an endpoint if they are not already present.
  • Built-in compliance reporting shows whether endpoints have the latest versions of critical applications and frameworks.

Refer to Software Management.


PowerShell is an extremely powerful command-line used by support engineers and system administrators to troubleshoot and configure Windows devices.

With the Datto RMM 6.5.0 release, users can now connect to a full PowerShell interface on remote devices. A connection can be opened directly from the Web Portal or the Agent Browser (through the Command Shell icon). Multiple connections can be opened to the same endpoint, and multiple different PowerShell connections can be open at the same time.

The Powershell connection requires authentication much like an RDP connection. If the remote device has saved RDP credentials, those will be used for the PowerShell connection as well.

Refer to PowerShell.
