The software that you deliver in this way must be defined as a software resource in the Software Catalog. If the software is not defined, contact an administrator who can edit the Software Catalog.

Create a Managed Software Delivery policy.
The options for creating a Managed Software Delivery policy are as follows:
Use the Managed Software Delivery wizard.
The Managed Software Delivery wizard provides a quick way to create and schedule a policy for a single software resource and its dependency software. We recommend that you use the wizard because it can include any dependency software and warn you of software associations automatically.
Use this method to create a Managed Software Delivery policy when you need to add multiple software resources and tasks or override the default settings. You also can publish the policy to the Software Portal. However, you must add any dependency software or determine software associations yourself.
You can accomplish the same goals by editing a policy that you created with the wizard.
When you use the Managed Software Delivery wizard to create the policy, you can define the schedule during the wizard.
After the policy runs, view reports.
The Software Management reports let you monitor the software deliveries.
The delivery reports provide information about the status of the software downloads and executions. For example, the software downloads for each computer, including the status and the download date. The compliance reports provide information about the compliance actions and the remediation actions.
