Deploying Edge Apps

In Edge Manager, you can deploy edge apps to multiple devices at once, or to single devices.


  1. In the left navigation pane, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. To deploy edge apps to a single device, follow these steps.
    1. Click the link for the device to which to deploy the edge app.
    2. Click the Edge Apps tab.
      The Edge Apps tab only displays if the selected device is running Edge.
      If there are applications already deployed to the selected device, they are displayed in the Applications list, where you can also start, stop, or delete applications on the device.
    3. Click Deploy Edge Apps.
  3. To deploy edge apps to multiple devices, create and apply filters to the device list, or select multiple devices, then select Device Operations > Deploy Edge App
  4. In the Select Edge Applications dialog, select the applications to deploy and click Next.
  5. In the Add Edge Applications Identifiers, add the unique application identifiers for the app, then click Next.
    If you are deploying multiple instances of the same edge app on a single device, each edge app instance must have a unique Application ID. When you deploy configurations, you must know the App ID for the instance of the edge app to which to apply the configuration.
    Application IDs must follow these rules:
    • Must begin with an alpha-numeric character.
    • Must be 50 characters or less.
    • Can consist of alpha-numeric characters, hyphens and underscores.
    The Schedule Deployment dialog box appears.
  6. In the Schedule Deployment dialog, select the date and time for deployment to the device.
    Note: You can set the time zone timestamp formatting (UTC or local) in the Settings page.
    1. In Timeout, set the timeout for each operation in weeks, days, hours, minutes, or seconds, per device.
      Note: When the operation is not scheduled, the timeout starts from the moment you create the task. When the operation is scheduled, the timeout is the scheduled time plus the timeout time you set.
    2. (Optional) In the Retries field, enter a number for how many times to retry the deployment in case of failure (including if the deployment times out).
    3. Click Next.
    4. In the Edge Applications Confirmation dialog box, click Submit.
    5. In the Deployment Status dialog box, click Close.
