Application Manager for MECM FAQ

I added a new collection to a deployment process - why I can't see the new deployment in Configuration Manager?

When you make changes or add new collections to a deployment process in Application Manager, the changes will not take effect until the next version of the application selected to the deployment process is published by Recast. You can re-import the application to Configuration Manager if you want to deploy the latest version of the application with new settings. 

See instructions for re-importing applications.

How often does Application Manager check for new application versions?

Application Manager checks for new application versions every 30 minutes by default. Click Start download on the Application Manager homepage to check and download new versions instantly.

How do I deploy an application only to devices with a previous version installed?

Application Manager created applications will be installed to all devices or users in a target collection whether or not there are previous versions installed. If you want to install an application only to devices with a previous version installed, create a collection and search for target devices with a query. Use the collection as your main deployment target. 

See instructions for creating collections with an application query.
