You can upload .dmg files to install, uninstall, or update software on Mac hosts.

Before you begin:
Who can use this feature? The One2Many feature is available for the following:
Basic/Plus/Premier Subscription Modular Subscription User Permissions
  • Premier
  • Automation

  • Run One2Many tasks
Note: DMG files must contain only the application that you want to install.
  1. In Central, go to the One2Many > Tasks page.
  2. Click Create Task.

    Result: The Create Task page is displayed.

  3. Under Select for Mac, select Install or update software.
  4. Name the task in the Task name field.
    Since you may end up with many saved tasks, be sure to use a clear and specific name.
  5. Choose whether to assign a plan now, or later:
    • To save your task and create a new plan that will be used to run the task, click Save and continue
    • To save the task without assigning a plan, click Save and close (you will be able to assign a plan later)

Tip: Once you have assigned a task to a plan and have run the plan, you can monitor progress and view logs on the One2Many > Plans page. You can view logs for completed tasks on the One2Many > History page.
