Attach digital assets to applications and select supported operating systems

To distribute applications to managed devices using Managed Installations or User Console downloads, you need to attach the appropriate digital assets to applications. Digital assets are the files required for deployment, such as installers. In addition, you need to select the supported operating systems for the application. You perform these tasks on the Software detail page.

To associate multiple files with an application, create a ZIP file that contains the files, then associate the resulting archive file with the application.

TIP: Digital assets can be attached to applications displayed on the Software page, but they cannot be attached to items in the Software Catalog page.

You have an option to select OS versions by their family, product, architecture, release ID, or build version. You can choose a specific build version, or a parent node, as needed. Selecting a parent node in the tree automatically selects the associated child nodes. This behavior allows you to select any future OS versions, as devices are added or upgraded in your managed environment. For example, to select all build current and future versions associated with the Windows 10 x64 architecture, under All > Windows > Windows 10, select x64.
