Shopping provides the following features which support migration of applications during OS deployment:

Please refer to Self-service Operating System deployment for more information on configuring OS Deployment applications

You can optionally integrate with Application Migration to supplement Self-service Operating System deployment, whereby the Windows Servicing Assistant (WSA) or the Shopping OSD Wizard can show users which applications will be migrated to their new OS.

When Shopping is used for self-service OS deployment, the OSD Wizard (Applications to reinstall page) lists applications that are currently installed and the corresponding applications that will be installed as a result of applying the defined Application rules. In order for Shopping to display this list when Application Migration is in use, it is necessary to enable Shopping integration with Application Migration as follows.

To integrate with Application Migration:

Integrating with Application Migration

  1. Under Integration in the Shopping Admin console, for AppMigration Endpoint enter the URL (in the format, http or https://serverFQDN:port) for the SLA platform.
  2. For AppMigration Mode choose AppMigration from the list.
  3. For SLA Platform Username enter user account that Shopping will use to query the SLA platform. This must be a user defined in the SLA Platform, as described in SLA Platform 3.3: Creating a new user.
  4. For SLA Platform Password enter the password for the user account specified in step 3
  5. Click Save. If any of these parameters are incorrect or the endpoint is not available, you cannot save them until you resolve the errors.

AppClarity Integration must be set to False. A description of settings, their values and behavior are listed below:
