After an import, packages are automatically associated with their application inventory item as they were related in the source App Volumes Manager.
If the application does not exist while importing, App Volumes Manager creates an application by using the application properties and then associates the package to the new application inventory item.
After an import, applications and packages are listed in the Inventory tab of the App Volumes Manager admin UI.
- Any update to the package properties such as package description or package stage is applied to all storage locations of the package.
Such an update ensures that when a package is imported, the package remains associated to the correct application.
- Any update to the application properties such as application name and description is applied to all packages of the application including to all package locations within the same App Volumes Manager instance.
- If the same package is copied to multiple storage locations, on an import, the source App Volumes Manager instance detects the package including all its duplicates and imports them to the target App Volumes Manager instance.
- Application owner information is applied to the package on import.
If an application package is marked as
CURRENT, though the package is imported, the package does not have the
CURRENT marker after the import.
