Hello, Per the following, is there a way to still allow General Catalog items to be targeted to a device?

IOJ-1864522 Starting in App Portal 2017 R2, General catalog items no longer require a device target. Prior to App Portal 2017 R2 SP1, there was no way to disable a feature. If your environment requires disabling of this feature, contact Flexera Technical Support for assistance.

Thanks,

Andy

you can run the following query against the App Portal DB to revert the behavior of general catalog items so that they require a target device rather than a target user:

IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM WD_Appsettings WHERE [KeyName] = 'RollbackToDeviceAssoiciationForROB')
INSERT INTO [dbo].[WD_AppSettings] (KeyName, Value) VALUES ('RollbackToDeviceAssoiciationForROB', 'True')
ELSE
UPDATE [dbo].[WD_AppSettings] set Value = 'True' Where [KeyName] ='RollbackToDeviceAssoiciationForROB'

Once you have run this query, be sure to perform an iisreset.

Thanks

Charles
