Bundle Groups

To simplify the management of a set of bundles, ZENworks enables you to create a bundle group. A bundle group constitutes a set of defined bundles. You can then assign the set of bundles with a single action by assigning the bundle group.

When a bundle group is assigned to a device, all the bundles represented in the group are installed on the device.

Create a bundle group by doing the following tasks:


Launch ZENworks Control Center.


Select the Bundles tab at the top of the screen.


Browse to the folder within the bundles where you want to create the bundle group.


Click on the New menu option and select Bundle Group. Figure 7.23 shows a sample first screen of the wizard. Press Next.

Figure 7.23. Representative first page of Create Bundle Group wizard.


This displays the summary screen. This only creates the bundle group, but it has no bundles as members. You can assign bundles into the group at a later time or you can do it now by pressing the Next button. The Add wizard page is displayed (see Figure 7.24).

Figure 7.24. Sample Add Members page of Group Wizard.


On the Add page, click on the Add button and browse to and select one or more bundles you want to add to this group. Press OK on the pop-up dialog to return to this page. Press Next.


The next page enables you to assign this group to any devices, groups, or folders. If you want to assign the group at this time, press the Add button. Then select the desired devices and press OK to exit the pop-up dialog box. Press Next.


The next screen is the summary screen. Press Finish to complete the bundle group creation.

You have now successfully created a bundle group. You can modify the bundle group by selecting the group and then using the snapshots displayed on the Add or Remove Members screen.
