Application Packing - Defining Applicabilty Rules

Iron Contributor

WSUS has the idea of applicabilty rules for packages. Is there anything similar in Application Deployment in MECM? When I create an application I can create logic to see if it's installed (detection logic) but this is not the same as applicabilty. Reading here the closest seems to be defining requirements? Is this the method to define applicabilty

That App Detections will do what you need. It can check to see if you meet the requirement before installing. It will also see that teh application is installed based on the rules that you write. however most people use the MSI GUID to detect is the app is installed or not.

Yes Requirements is the method of setting up applicability rules for an application as stated on the page you referred to "Applicability indicates whether the application is applicable based on defined requirement rules.".
You have the existing requirements to choose from but you can also create your own Custom Requirements by creating "Global Conditions". You first create a Global Condition under Software Library/Overview/Application Management/Global Conditions then you can choose that condition from the list when configuring the Requirements for your application.
