Using the Self Service Client application

With the Self Service Client application, you can publish software to Windows endpoints so that users can install software on their own without the need for IT to install them. To use the Self Service Client application on your Windows endpoints, you must create a self service profile in Deploy version 1.2 or later.

Before you begin

Create a self service profile

  1. From the Deploy menu, click Self Service Profiles and then click Create Profile.
  2. Provide a name and optionally a description for the profile.
  3. Select computer groups or define a group of computers to target.
  4. Choose packages or bundles to include or remove from the profile.
    1. By default, each package is allowed to be installed, updated, and removed in the Self Service Client application. You can deselect any options if you do not want users to perform those operations.
    2. If a software package requires a restart of the endpoint, you can select Requires Restart.
  5. Click Preview to Continue and then click Create Profile.

From the Deploy menu, click Self Service Profiles to view all self service profiles.

This page displays all currently defined profiles and basic information about those profiles.

This expanded detail also shows the targeted groups or questions for the profile.

Edit a self service profile
