AdminStudio Package Feed Module

Jump to solution

Hi Team,

Can you help me understand the below in regards to AdminStudio Package Feed Module...

  • Is it integrated with SCCM?
  • Or is it independent SAAS product?
  • Is there a pre requisite that these application needs to packaged through admin Studio first to be able to manage and update them later?

Hi @sanderson ,

The AdminStudio Package Feed Module is an add-on feature and service to the AdminStudio Professional and Enterprise editions. It allows you to search and download over 3,000 installers from hundreds of software vendors along with supported silent command-line options right from within AdminStudio. 

AdminStudio's Distribution Wizard can quickly publish installers, MSIX, and virtual packages up to ConfigMgr (formerly SCCM), whether those packages were downloaded from the Package Feed Module or imported into AdminStudio from other places like your file shares.

The Distribution Wizard will take the package and publish it along with all of the Application Model information like Dependencies, Requirements, Detection Methods, and more, providing you the same end results as using the ConfigMgr admin console, but saving you a fair number of clicking. AdminStudio Enterprise users can even publish multiple package to ConfigMgr in one action, saving even more time. 

Package Feed Module is hosted in Flexera's cloud but requires AdminStudio to download the packages and silent command-line options. It is not available and is not used as a standalone product, but rather it's a new source to import packages from into AdminStudio to start the Application Readiness journey, saving time from researching the correct packages and silent switches.

The packages and their silent switches from Package Feed Module would be downloaded in AdminStudio, at which point you have multiple options to prepare that application depending on with what you are working. Since you would be downloading these packages and switches into AdminStudio, it's easy to then prepare them and then publish them by working within AdminStudio. AdminStudio uses industry standards like MSI and popular technologies like the PowerShell App Deploy Toolkit & WiseScript for wrapping applications, so you're not locked into any proprietary technology or method.  Once those packages make it into ConfigMgr (or another supported deployment solution), you can use all the other deployment tools and processes to manage and update those packages.

AdminStudio makes it quicker and easier to manage these packages, so you're going back and using AdminStudio to help prepare new versions as they come out; it is your pre-deployment solution for all of your application packages to prepare them for ConfigMgr.
