Activate client software distribution

Client software distribution requires the Orchestration - Client Software Distribution plugin (com.snc.orchestration.client_sf_distribution), which is available by request with a subscription to Orchestration.

About this task

The Orchestration - Client Software Distribution plugin activates the Orchestration - System Center Configuration Manager plugin that contains the custom SCCM activities used to deploy or revoke software using an SCCM server. For additional plugin dependencies, see Plugins installed with client software distribution.
Note: The Orchestration - Client Software Distribution plugin runs in its own application scope.
