Description

Configure the default settings for Managed Software Delivery policies.

Configuration settings control the behavior of Managed Software Delivery policies. Rather than configuring these settings individually for each policy, you can configure the default settings that apply to all new Managed Software Delivery policies. Then you can change the settings for a specific policy only when needed.

Perform an advanced software delivery.

Managed Software Delivery simplifies your advanced software deliveries by letting you deliver software as a unit, which can include multiple software resources and their dependencies. For example, you can create a single Managed Software Delivery policy that installs an application and its associated patches and service packs. Managed Software Delivery can also run any task at any stage of the delivery.

Perform a Quick Delivery of a single software resource.

You can perform a Quick Delivery of a single software resource that runs with minimum configuration. You can use the task-based Quick Delivery method to specify the software to deliver, the action to perform, and the computers to deliver to. Because the software resources and the delivery settings are predefined, Quick Delivery makes it easy for administrators and non-administrators to deliver software.
