Tag Archive: software Deployment SCCM

In this post we will talk about a new feature in SCCM which helps us in a way that users can request for a software from the user website in SCCM.

To do the Lab we will have to do the following :

1. Create Roles : Application Catalog Web Service Point and Application Catalog Website 

2. Create an Application

3. Deploy the Application in a way that is can be requested from sccm but with an approval.


Step 1 : Create Role : below are the screen shots :

Add Role SCCM 1


click Add role :

Add Role SCCM 2


Click Next :

Add Role SCCM 3


Select first two roles and then Click next

Add Role SCCM 4


Click Next

Add Role SCCM 5


click Next

Add Role SCCM 6


Give Name and then Click next

Add Role SCCM 7


Completed Step 1


Create Application :

Below Are Screen shots :

Create Application SCCM 4



Completed step 2


Step 3 : Create Deployment for Application

Deploying Application SCCM 1

As an Extension to my Last post on SCCM Application request , I am Using A link to a Good Link here where you can get a Tool ( In case you do not have Other Components of System center – 2012 Like Service manager ) , Which can be used to Send Emails to a set of people who would Approve the requests for Software / Application :


Usage : Let us Say that a user requests for an Application ( Which is a Good Practice ) , Now Under the Standard SCCM 2012 Capability you will not be able to Send Emails to Anyone who can approve  the request . The Only way left was to refresh the SCCM Console regularly .

Now you can use this Link to Download Tool To Send Emails :
