Section Details


Please review the sub-sections in this "Fileset Creation and Deployment" guide for your managed OS platforms. Once you have you have at least one Fileset created, please review this page to see how to Associate your Filesets.

Associate Filesets to Clients


Now that we have your Fileset created, let's associate them to your Client devices, set them to either deploy in the background without any user interaction or on-demand via the FileWave Kiosk and possibly schedule the installation. This section will cover the most commonly used methods to associate Filesets to devices. However, there are "shortcut" methods to associate new content directly from the "Clients" perspective or "Filesets" perspective.

Associate Fileset using drag-n-drop

  1. Open FileWave Admin and navigate to "Associations".
  2. Find and select either an individual device or Client group from the left-hand pane.
    • We will be using the macOS device named "Avery Thomas".
  3. Find and select either an individual Fileset or Fileset group from the right-hand pane.
    • We will be using the macOS Fileset named "macOS - Google Chrome".
  4. Drag-n-drop the "macOS - Google Chrome" Fileset from the right-hand pane onto the "Avery Thomas" macOS device.
    • You can associate Filesets at any level; one to many, many to one, one to one.
  5. You should now see a new "Standard" Association appear in the bottom pane.
    • "Standard" associations are the default and will deploy in the background without any user interaction.
