There are various options for assigning a registered firmware update to a device:

  • Directly:
    • using drag & drop
    • using Assigned Objects in the device view

  • Indirectly:
    • via a directory
Assigning a firmware update will not trigger the update process. Only the information required for the update will be transferred to the device.
 If you are using a Windows-based device, refer to the chapters Snapshots and Partial Update in the Windows 10 IoT manual.

The update process can be launched in two ways:

  • Manually:
    1. Right-click on the device in the UMS structure tree.
    2. From the context menu, select Update & snapshot commands > Update or Update when shutting down.

  • As a job:
    1. Right-click on Jobs in the UMS structure tree.
    2. Select New Scheduled Job from the context menu.
    3. Enter a Name.
    4. As Command, select Update, or Update on Boot, or Update when shutting down.
    5. Complete the setup procedure for the job, see Details and Schedule.
    6. Assign the job to devices or directories, see Assignment.
