Base Installation Feature Should Create Applications not Packages in SCCM

The base installation feature available today in the publishing service uses the legacy package model in SCCM. It would be a better experience for it to create applications for base installations.



We are adding this idea based on previous customer feedback via email, forum, and community.

    please move the applications and packages to some subfolder after creating them.

    @Paul, could you not use multiple deployment types in this scenario with one checking if OSD is being run as a requirement?

    I have a specific use case, our package uses PADT and we have a check in place that looks to see if their is a pending reboot. If so, it prompts the user to reboot and then will install. For OSD we don't want any prompts so we run a different command in the same application but then publish it as a package.

    I don't have a specific use case. Just thought to keep options open, but I agree that applications would be a better choice if picking one over the other.

    Hey Mark, can you provide a scenario where you would rather create a package instead of an application?

    Or maybe let us choose per app if it created a package or an application?
