ChangeBASE 6.2.2 - Prerequisites and Getting Started Guide

Creating Composite Applications

If required, you can drag one or more packages in the Application Name column onto another, parent, package to create composite applications, with composite RAG statuses.

The constituent packages within a composite application appear at the bottom of the screen, in the member package grid at the bottom of the window, when the application is highlighted. The parent package is indicated in the Package Primary column on the left.

If you want to remove a package from an application, highlight the required package and select Remove Package from Application in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

If you want to link any of the SCCM packages to packages that share the same SCCM Package Name, select them in turn and then select SCCM > Link SCCM Programs. The linking is indicated via the SCCM Program Linked flag. The applications are linked under the parent SCCM Package Name, and are shown at the bottom of the screen as shown above.

TIP: If the SCCM Package Name or SCCM Program Linked column is not currently displayed, you can select one or both from the Column Chooser by right-clicking in any of the column headers, selecting Show Column Chooser from the context menu, and then dragging the columns onto the top row of the grid. You can also display the SCCM Application Install Count in the same way.

When you need to hide the Column Chooser again, either close it by clicking the cross in the top right-hand corner, or right-click in any of the column headers and select Hide Column Chooser from the context menu.

 

Note: In SCCM, 'package' is the equivalent of 'application' in ChangeBASE, and 'program' is the equivalent of 'package'. If you have, say, three programs - Word, Excel and Access - that belong to a single package called 'Office' in SCCM, then, when they are imported into ChangeBASE, three separate packages - Word, Excel and Access - will be created by default.

If you then check the three packages in the Applications window, and select SCCM > Link SCCM Programs, the three packages will be grouped into a single application called 'Office'. The individual packages will be shown at the bottom of the screen when 'Office' is highlighted.
