Upload Software Packages and OS Sources (Empirum) SaaS

First steps in your Matrix42 Client Management (Empirum) SaaS solution and links to the documentation on different topics. Matrix42 Client Management (Empirum) SaaS is part of Matrix42 Unified Endpoint Management.

Overview

The Matrix42 SUEM Cloud offering allows the deployment of Empirum Software packages, Enterprise Applications via Silverback and the installation of Windows Operating Systems.

In order to deploy software or operating systems the required packages needs to be uploaded and registered at the server. This article describes the options to prepare and upload the packages for the various package types. The benefit using the UUX based package upload is that there is no 8 GB file size limit and the packages are automatically registered in Empirum or Silverback.

Empirum Software packages can also be integrated via the Matrix42 PackageCloud integration. This allows the instant use of hundreds of prepackaged software packages. See the dedicated documentation.

Choose to create a ZIP file at the end of the process to allow the upload via UUX.

In the Matrix42 Empirum Management Console -> Configuration -> Software Management -> Depot -> right click on a software package and choose Export Package... The package needs to be ZIPed before uploading it via UUX.
