The ability to create new versions of a Custom Software allows you to keep all the versions of a software within the same Catalog item. Multiple versions make it easy to keep track of which version of the Software you are running on each device while keeping all versions available on Addigy for testing purposes and other uses. Below is an example of a dropdown containing all your versions.
If you have not created a Custom Software before or if you would like to refresh your memory on how to do it, here is a KB article that will help you do so: https://support.addigy.com/a/solutions/articles/8000042895
If you already have a Custom Software, proceed with the following steps to create new versions.
From the Policies page, navigate to Catalog -> Custom Software and click on the Custom Software’s name.
From here click on + New Version.
Enter in the new version of your Custom Software in the Enter New Version field and click Add Version.
Note: The new version of the Custom Software will not be added to what is being deployed automatically. This will need to be done manually by going to the Policies page, select the Policy which you wish to add the new version to, click on Software, and click on the green arrow that will appear next to the Software Name in the Upgrade column.
Once the new version of the Custom Software is deployed to the device, it will overwrite the files of the older version of the software in the Applications folder. However, in Addigy’s directory (/Library/Addigy/ansible/packages) a separate folder will be created for each version.
If you experience any issues creating a new version of your Custom Software or have additional questions, please reach out to Addigy support (firstname.lastname@example.org).
