Welcome to the Application Migration 2.5.200 documentation space. Here we describe all aspects of configuring and using Application Migration. Here's a quick overview of what the Application Migration documentation pages will tell you.

Introducing Application Migration 2.5.200
Working with Application Migration
  • Managing your rulesMigration rules are used to dictate what happens to previously installed applications during an OS migration – these rules can include usage criteria, allowing you to choose to only install previously installed applications if they were being used, or perhaps replace a rarely used application with a less costly alternative. They can also dictate what happens on new build devices.
  • Managing product exclusionsThe list of products in the Catalog is quite substantial and contains items such as security updates, service packs, hotfixes, drivers, etc which are not useful if you are compiling application migration rules. There may also be applications that you do not use in your organization, for example Cisco Jabber has no value to you if you are committed to Skype for Business as your instant messenger.
  • Previewing post-OS migration application states
  • Role-based application setsA Role-based Application Set defines a set of applications that should be installed on a computer for a user performing a particular role, or perhaps working in a particular location. For example, everyone in the Project Management Office requires Microsoft Project. Role-based Application Sets are primarily designed to be used when building a new computer, where there are no applications to be migrated but there is a base set of applications that the new user will need. They can also optionally
  • Using Application Migration in a task sequenceThe actual process of migrating applications is performed during an OS deployment task sequence in Configuration Manager.
  • Changes when using Application Migration 2.5.200 on Tachyon 4.1
  • Supported PlatformsA list of all the platforms supported by Application Migration and the software required to allow Application Migration to be installed and work correctly.
  • 1E Companion ProductsA list of the feature dependencies between Application Migration and other 1E companion products.
  • Communication PortsDiagrams and links to tables for all the external communication ports used by SLA and locally installed consumer applications. Useful, if needed, for configuring network and device firewalls.
  • Installer propertiesA list of the Windows installer properties for the Application Migration installer.
  • Creating a rule to retain an applicationA retain migration rule reinstalls the same version of the application during the migration.
  • Creating a rule to upgrade an applicationAn upgrade migration rule upgrades an existing application to a newer version.
  • Creating a rule to replace an applicationA replace migration rule replaces an application with an alternative. This is useful for standardizing on common tools such as file compression applications.
  • Get migration settingsProvides support for encryption in PBA. Also enables PBA to be used for computer replace scenarios. This task can be configured to run under either the capture phase or the restore phase. Its behavior differs depending on which phase it's run under.
