Deploying a Bill of Materials to a Single Device

Use the Device Manager page to deploy a BOM to a single device.


  1. In the left navigation pane, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. Click the link for the device to which to deploy the BOM.
  3. Click the BOM tab.
  4. Select Deploy BOM.
  5. In the Select BOM dialog box, select the BOM to deploy, and click Schedule.

    If there are multiple versions of the BOM file, you can click in the version column to select the version of the BOM to deploy.

    When a BOM is updated and redeployed, packages specified in the BOM that are already installed on the device are skipped (not downloaded and deployed again). Only new packages are deployed to the device. The status of skipped packages is displayed as "installed" rather than "success."

    Note: If you schedule a deployment to a device with the status of "created" or "offline," the status displays "Pending" until the device comes online, at which time the deployment begins automatically and the status changes to "In progress."
  6. In the Schedule Software 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. (Optional) Select the Force BOM installation box if there is already a package with the same name and version installed on the device and you want to overwrite it.
    4. Click Submit.
    The Deployment Status dialog appears.
  7. In the Deployment Status dialog box, click Close.
    The BOM deployment appears in the Last Created Operation section.
