9.0 Managing Bundle Assignments

ZENworks lets you assign bundles to users as well as devices. Device-assigned bundles are available whenever the device is running; user-assigned bundles are available only when the user is logged in to the Management Zone. For example, if you assign a bundle to a user, the bundle is available only after the user logs in. Unlike devices, users are not defined in your Management Zone. Instead, you connect to the LDAP directory that you want to use as your authoritative user source. If necessary, you can connect to multiple directories. For more information on the user source, see the ZENworks User Sources Reference.

You can manage a bundle assignment from the bundle’s Relationships page (Click the bundle and then the Relationship tab). The Relationships page is not affected by the bundle change management capability.

NOTE:If you have different schedules configured for a bundle that is assigned to multiple objects such as users, devices, or their groups and folder assignments:

  • All the assigned schedules are applicable.

  • The Shortcut Location assignments, which are configured to specify the locations on the managed device where ZENworks Agent displays the bundle’s icon, are merged and the shortcut is displayed in all configured locations.
