Client Actions on Collection: Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle

The Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle tool re-evaluates the requirement rules for all deployments. For applications that are required but not installed, executing the Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle will prompt ConfigMgr to trigger a re-install. The default ConfigMgr runtime value is 7 days.

How it does it

This tool completes this action by using remote WMI.

Navigation

Navigate to the Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle Tool by right clicking on a device collection, selecting Recast RCT > Client Actions on Collection > Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle:

Permissions

The Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle tool requires the following permissions:

Recast Permissions

  • Requires the Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle permission in the ConfigMgr Client plugin.

Microsoft Permissions

  • This action requires that the device you're targeting has a working ConfigMgr client installed. Additionally, the user running the ConfigMgr console will need to have administrator access to the remote device (if using Recast RCT Community or a Recast Server in impersonation mode), and the remote WMI ports will need to be allowed through the firewall. If the "Ping Computer Before Running Tools" option is set, ICMP Echo will also need to be allowed through the firewall. If using a Recast Server with a service account, the service account will need administrator permissions on the remote device.
