Upon login, the user will reach the Deployment View as seen above in Figure 1.

In general, Deployment View is where a user can update a single target device or small groups of target devices and also observe a number of statuses and other information. The following describes the purpose of the different containers within the Deployment View.

  • Filters: Only specific target devices will be displayed using simple filters, custom filters, or by filter status.
  • Targets: Target devices will be listed here based on the currently applied filter(s).
  • Distributions: Drag and drop pre-configured distribution sets (one or more updates) to a single target device or group of target devices.
  • Filter by Tag: Only specific Distributions will be displayed by applying Tags.
  • Action History: Displays each software update event for the selected Target Device. There are five fields of data: Active, Distributionset, Date and Time, Status, Forced and Actions.

Note

Updating the selected target device(s) to a specific distribution is done by drag-and-drop.
