When the policy assigned to a device is changed, the new policy will be applied and new list of application will be installed. When selecting the application, it is possible to specify number of installation retries (in case an application installation is cancelled by user, FAMOC will retry the operation). Possible options:

  • Installation obligatory (default option) – if installation is canceled, it will be applied every next day.

  • One installation attempt – if installation is canceled, it will not be retried.

  • Several installation attempts – installation will be retried specified number of times.

Policy components can be set in custom installation order using down/up arrows in Order column. By default, each item is installed in a sequence (next item starts when previous has been successfully installed). It is possible to mark an item as independent (Independent column), which means the next action starts independently of the previous action, not waiting for its success report.

Select Ignore failure to execute the next action if the previous one failed.
