Roles

This area shows all available software installation roles.

Roles are used to logically combine application groups that are needed for a specific use case. You can create roles for example a Citrix VDA installation with prerequisite-, main installation- and application-groups.

Use roles to logically combine application groups and order them as needed. The installation order is taken from the roles and groups order.
