Adding a software resource to the Software Portal in the enhanced console views
(Windows and Mac OS only)
You can add (publish) a software resource to the Software Portal to deliver a single piece of software with minimum configuration. You can publish only the resources that have a command line. You can select one or more command lines that you want to publish, and configure user and permission assignments for each of the command lines individually. For example, you can choose to pre-approve the software install command line, but require administrator's approval for the uninstall command line.
When you publish a software resource, a hidden Quick Delivery task is created. After a software request is approved, the Quick Delivery task runs and installs the software on the user's computer as soon as possible.
When a software resource is published to the Software Portal, its publishing settings are saved in the Software Catalog as a reference to the software resource. You cannot delete a software resource from the Software Catalog if references are associated with that software resource. To ensure that you can delete the software resource, you must delete its references first.
If the software resource that you publish has dependencies on other software, the dependency software is not delivered as a result of a user request. Instead, create and publish a Managed Software Delivery policy for that software so that the dependencies are installed.
