When using Advanced
extraction mode, you use the Advanced Selection page to select the applications
and/or packages that you want to extract from the selected ConfigMgr site for
loading into AppDNA.
Note: If the ConfigMgr
site contains a very large number of packages or applications, this page takes
some time to display them all. However, you can use the page, while this
continues. When enough packages and/or applications have been displayed for
your purposes, click
Cancel to stop any more from being displayed.
The top part of the
page has features that make it easy to select groups of packages and
applications for loading into AppDNA. The details are as follows:
The lower part of
the page has tabs that list packages and applications. These have additional
features that make it easy to sort and filter the lists. There is more
information on these features below.
applications and packages that correspond to the managed applications that you
want to load into or update in AppDNA, or whose status you want to be able to
report on by division or department (for example). Citrix recommends that you
select no more than a total of 2,000 applications and packages for extraction
at the same time.
When you have
selected the packages or applications (or both) that you want to extract, click
Next. All items that are visible and selected will
be extracted. Items that have been excluded from the list by a filter are
You can restrict
the list to items that have specific values in one or more of the columns. This
is particularly useful if you have a large ConfigMgr deployment, because it
enables you to reduce the list to a more manageable size. Any items that are
excluded from the list by a filter are ignored when you click
- Click in the text box under
the header of the column that contains the values on which you want to filter
the list. From the drop-down list, select the value that you want to filter on.
Alternatively, type the value that you want to filter on in the text box. For
example, you can restrict the list to items whose name begins with "A".
- If you want to restrict the
list to items that do not match a value (or that start with a value, for
example), click the
A icon on the left of the text box. Then from the
drop-down list, select the option you want to use (for example,
- To clear a filter, click
the icon on the right side of the text box.
- You can set filters on more
than one column.
You can sort
the list on the data in any column:
- Click the column header
to sort in ascending order of the values in that column.
- Click the column header
again to sort in descending order.
Grouping by a
You can group the
items in the list by the data in any of the columns. For example, you can group
items by manufacturer, status, or date of modification.
- Drag the header of the
column (for example, the
Status header) to the
column header here to group by that column bar. (Alternatively,
select the heading from the
by drop-down list.)
- This groups the items by
the values in that column. For example, when you group by the
Status column, all of the items that have a status
New are grouped together.
- Expand the groups to see
the items inside.
- Click the header of the
column you are grouping the items by to reverse the sort order.
- Drag the column header back
to the header bar when you no longer want to group the items. You need to place
the column header before or after another column header. Alternatively, from
by drop-down list, choose
Note: You can also
reorder the columns by dragging the column headers.
