Prerequisites

In this section:

Prerequisites View

The Prerequisites view lists all prerequisites that are required for the consoles and the uploaded packages. The view identifies if the prerequisite is installed or missing. The name, platform and version number is also provided for the prerequisites.

The User Workspace Manager Installer automatically loads prerequisites. However, this can be bypassed allowing you to install prerequisites at a later stage, hence you may have missing prerequisites displayed in the Prerequisites view. You may also upload a package, for example, an agent, that requires prerequisites that are not currently installed. Use the Upload Installer action to upload missing prerequisites.

You can also use the view to delete any prerequisites that are no longer required, and to export them, for example, to provide to another user.

Actions

  • Upload Installer — Available when a required prerequisite installer is missing. Select the missing prerequisite and select Upload Installer to display the Upload Prerequisite dialog. Enter the file location and name or select the ellipsis to browse for the file. Click Next to upload the prerequisite file.
  • Export Installer — Select a prerequisite and select to export the installer for the prerequisite. The Browse For Folder dialog displays, navigate to the required destination folder and click OK.

    The name of the prerequisite installer remains the same and cannot be changed.

  • Delete Installer — Select a prerequisite and select to delete the installer for the prerequisite. A warning message displays for you to confirm the deletion, click Yes to continue.
