3.2 Bundle Summary Page

The Summary page of a bundle displays the following panels:

3.2.1 General

The General panel provides a summary of the bundle’s general settings.

Bundle Type

Displays the type of bundle.


Click Compute to display the size of the content associated with the bundle. To view the correct size of the bundle, check for the bundle size information in the bundle summary page after the content import is complete.

When you create a bundle, the bundle's files are imported to the ZENworks content repository. The import is a server process that can take a while. Until the import is complete, the size of the bundle is displayed as 0 (zero).


Displays the latest published version of the bundle. However, if the bundle is a sandbox-only bundle or has a sandbox, it displays Sandbox.


Displays whether or not the bundle can be deployed to managed devices. If a bundle is enabled, it can be deployed to managed devices.

When you disable a bundle that has already been deployed to a managed device, the bundle icon is removed from all the shortcut locations of the device. However, all the actions performed on the device prior to the disabling of the bundle remain unchanged. If this bundle is assigned to a new device, the bundle shortcut icons are not placed in the device's shortcut locations.

If the bundle is disabled, click Enable to allow it to be deployed.

Number of Errors Not Acknowledged

An error is anything that causes the deployment or installation of the bundle to fail. The number displayed indicates the number of unacknowledged errors, which are any errors that you have not specifically marked as acknowledged. Unacknowledged errors are displayed in the Message Log section.

Number of Warnings Not Acknowledged

A warning is anything that does not cause the deployment or installation of the bundle to fail, but indicates minor problems with the bundle. The number displayed indicates the number of unacknowledged warnings, which are any warnings that you have not specifically marked as acknowledged. Unacknowledged warnings are displayed in the Message Log section.


Displays the bundle’s GUID (global unique identifier), a randomly generated string that provides a unique identifier for the bundle. You cannot edit the GUID.

Display Name

Displays the bundle’s name as it appears in ZENworks Control Center (ZCC) and the ZENworks Agent (on managed devices). Click Edit to change the name. Changing the name does not cause the bundle to be redeployed. It is recommended that you specify a name that is brief and more relevant to the end user.


Displays the bundle’s description, if one was provided when the bundle was created. The description appears in ZCC and the ZENworks Agent (on managed devices). Click Edit to change the description.

It is recommended that you provide enough information to the user by detailing the actions that will be performed when the user double-clicks the bundle icon on the device. To view the description on the device, the user can right-click the bundle icon and select Properties.


Determines the shortcut icon that ZENworks Agent displays on managed devices. During creation of the bundle, if you specified a custom icon rather than using the standard ZENworks bundle icon, this field displays the image and name of the custom icon. If you did not specify a custom icon, this field is empty and the standard icon is used.

To easily identify the bundle, you could use an icon that represents the application associated with the bundle. It is recommended that you upload a .JPG, .PNG, or .BMP format and a square image. However, ZENworks automatically converts the uploaded icon images to the correct format and size.

Click Edit to change the icon, delete the icon, or add an icon if one is not specified.

To select an icon, click Browse icon, allow browser to launch ZCC Helper, and then browse to and select the icon you want to display on managed devices.

If you do not specify an icon, a default icon is used.

NOTE:For Linux bundles, only the PNG and JPEG formats are supported.


Displays the contact information (names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses) of the people who you want users to contact with problems or questions about the bundle. The contact information is displayed by ZENworks Agent on managed devices.

As the contact information can be viewed by all the users to whom the bundle is assigned, ensure that you provide the appropriate contact information.

Click Edit to change the contact information, delete contact information, or add contact information.

Administrator Notes

Displays any information that has been added specifically for ZENworks administrators to view. The notes are displayed only in ZCC.

It is recommended that you provide detailed information related to every aspect of the bundle, thereby providing all the required information for administrators. You can specify information that will enable other ZENworks administrators to decide whether or not they would need to use the bundle. You can also specify information such as what is the OS version, whether it’s a 32-bit or 64-bit bundle, where is it installed (especially if the location is not very common), and whether license costs are involved. It is also a good practice to end the note with the date and your name and if you have changed an existing bundle, place your changes at the end of the list.

Click Edit to change the notes, add notes, or delete notes. Editing the note does not create a sandbox. You can edit the administrator notes for any version of a bundle.

ZENworks Explorer Folder Path

Displays the folder path used by ZENworks Agent when displaying the bundle on the Start menu.

For example, if you specify Applications/Accounting as the path and choose to display the bundle on the Start menu, ZENworks Agent creates an Applications/Accounting folder on the Start menu and adds the bundle to it.

You can place multiple bundles in a single folder by specifying the same folder path for each of the bundles.

Click Edit to change the folder path, add a folder path, or delete the folder path.

Add-On Image File

You can create an image file for the bundle to use as an add-on image to a base image. If you have already created an image file for the bundle, this field displays the name of the image file. Otherwise, click Create to create the image file and assign it to image servers.

If the bundle includes any dependent bundles, you can also create and assign an add-on image for the dependent bundles.

Show Bundle Activity

Click Yes to display the bundle activity indicator window during the distribution, installation, repair, and uninstallation of a bundle on the managed device. If set to Yes, this window is also displayed for actions defined in the Launch Action set. The user on the managed device cannot close this bundle activity indicator window.

On Windows 2000 devices, the control that indicates the progress of the bundle execution on the managed device is not displayed in the bundle activity indicator window.

Dependency Bundles

Displays None if there are no bundle dependencies for this bundle. If there are dependencies for this bundle, click Display Bundle Dependencies to display a list of additional bundles that are required by this bundle.

The list is for viewing only. To change a bundle dependency, switch to the Actions tab, click the appropriate action (for example, Install or Launch), then locate the Linked Application Bundle or Linked Preboot Bundle. Select the entry and perform the action you want (for example, edit or delete it).

For more information, see Dependency Bundles.


This field is available only for Linux bundles. It indicates the severity, such as Security, Recommended or Optional.

YUM Service

This field is available only for Linux bundles and Linux Dependency bundles.

Click Create to create a YUM service and assign it to ZENworks Servers in a Management Zone. You can create a YUM service for a bundle and use it on devices that are not managed by ZENworks. Click Help for more information on how to create a YUM service.

When you create the YUM service, the bundle’s Summary page is displayed. The YUM Service field displays the relative path of the repository. The In-Progress icon indicates the progress. Click the Summary tab to refresh the page. The Success icon indicates that the service is hosted on the Primary Server. The relative path of the YUM repository is displayed in the YUM Service field.

A yellow Repo is not updated icon is displayed when the repository is not updated with the packages in the bundle.

Click Edit to edit the YUM service details. You can edit the YUM service to add or remove Primary Servers.

3.2.2 Message Log

The Message Log panel displays all unacknowledged messages generated for the object. An unacknowledged message is one that you have not yet reviewed and marked as acknowledged.

  • Status: Displays an icon indicating the type of message: Critical Status icon critical, Warning Status icon warning, and Normal Status icon normal.

  • Message: Displays a brief description of the event that occurred.

  • Date: Displays the date and time the event occurred.

NOTE:The Message Log panel on the bundle’s sandbox or the older versions page does not display any messages. However, the Message Log panel on the bundle’s published version page displays the messages of the bundle’s published version, sandbox, and the older versions.

A message remains in the Message Log list until you acknowledge it. You can acknowledge individual messages, acknowledge all messages at one time, or view more information about both acknowledged and unacknowledged messages. The following table explains how to do these tasks:
