Additional Information

  • Project Thunderdome must be installed first on a user’s computer before deployments can be pushed to that user.
  • Data Standard itself will not be deployed by Project Thunderdome. Only the Data Standard customizations are pushed.
  • The deployment settings are stored in a file called The Vault administrator should set the security on this file so that it is read-only for regular Vault users.
  • For security reasons, files related to login are not part of the backup nor can they be added to deployments.
  • There cannot be any more than 1 deployment file in a given Vault.
  • Deploying items in the "Configuration Files" section will overwrite user's existing settings. For example, deploying "Shortcuts" will overwrite user's shortcuts with the shortcuts in the deployment file.
