Role Order in Computer/Roles

Hi,

I´ve seen that, by default, MDT install applications assotiated through roles and computers are installed in the exact same order they appear in the "Applications" tab in workbench.

I can also see that MDT FrontEnd uses the same order to retrieve this list from database.

Is it possible to implement a new feature to change this order (move up and down) without having to remove all applications and assign them again in the correct order?

This also applies to Roles order in computer configuration and for almost all "assign lists".

Cheers

Hi Bruno,

Each of the lists can simply be re-ordered by Dragging an existing item to the new position and then "Save" the changes made.

A default cs.ini should take that order into consideration if querying for e.g. assigned applications. An example cs.ini could look like

[CApps]
SQLServer=YourDatabaseServer
Database=YourDatabase
NetLib=DBNMPNTW
SQLShare=YourShare
Table=ComputerApplications
Parameters=UUID,AssetTag,SerialNumber,MacAddress
ParameterCondition=OR
Order=Sequence

You can also use the WebFrontEnd to create a sample cs.ini on the Admin-Configuration Tab. It's just not adding the SQLShare property currently
