Action1 5 Documentation 5 Deploy Software with App Store

Deploy Software with App Store


Action1 streamlines the software deployment process — go to App Store and browse the list of apps and packages ready for installation. The App Store is a centralized application deployment dashboard with hundreds of most commonly used apps such as Acrobat Reader DC, Skype, and others. For each app, you can see the Windows OS versions it’s compatible with, the current and previous versions.

Typically, new stable versions appear in the App Store within two days after release. For security and compatibility reasons, beta and development versions aren’t available in the App Store.

Software deployment and management are controlled from a centralized location and delivered to a network of managed endpoints. Powered by a secure P2P file-sharing technology, Action1 agents download distributions in small chunks and in parallel that reduces the load on your network resources.

To deploy an app:

  1. In Action1 free deployment tool, browse the App Store or search for a specific app to deploy, and then select Deploy App from the Actions menu. Or deploy updates.

  1. On the Deploy app step, review the app you are prepared for installation. You can deploy several apps or updates simultaneously — search for an app package name. Specify reboot options if necessary.

    Make sure to read and accept the EULA. Note that when deploying updates, the EULA gets accepted automatically since you’ve already consented to license terms when you first installed the app.

Deploying app - step 1
  1. On the Select Endpoints step, click Add Endpoints to specify the workstations and servers to install the package to. With our software deployment management tools, you can customize where to deploy the package: choose endpoints one by one or push deployment to the entire group.
Deploying app - step 2
  1. On the Schedule step, define when you want to run the installation: now, at a specified time, or according to a certain schedule. Action1 takes care of the endpoints that are switched off and will retry the installation later.

You can see upcoming installations on the Actions / Scheduled page. Check the Actions / History page for more details on installation results.

With Action1, you can specify software deployment methods that work best for you. Consider creating a deployment policy if you have to make sure certain apps are always installed on your managed endpoints. The policy will scan all endpoints and force software deployment on a network. It will install the apps where they are missing and show a compliant status for the endpoint where these apps are in place. Navigate to Policies / Definitions or select New Policy on top of the screen.
