If an application has several packages and the latest package version must be delivered to an entity, then you can use the Marker assignment type and mark the package as CURRENT when assigning the application to the entity. As a result, the entity always receives the latest version of the application.

If this package is in a synchronization relationship with a package on a source instance and the marker synchronization setting is activated on the source, you cannot perform the Set CURRENT operation for this package from this instance. The set marker operation is deactivated on this instance (target) and can be performed only from the source instance by using the Manage Source button.

For more information about the manage source feature, see Manage a Synchronized App Volumes Application at the Source. For information about marker synchronization criteria, see Criteria for Application Synchronization.

Some of the characteristics of the package marked as CURRENT are as follows:
  • Only one package in an application can be set as CURRENT.
  • All entities with the Marker assignment type receive the package marked as CURRENT.


Ensure that the package you want to mark as CURRENT has completed the packaging process.


  1. From App Volumes Manager, go to INVENTORY > Packages.
  2. Click the package that has completed the packaging process.
    Status of the package, which has completed the packaging process, is Enabled.
  3. Review the package information and click Set CURRENT.
  4. On the Confirm Set CURRENT window, click Set CURRENT.

    Package is marked as CURRENT.

    Notepad_pkg has the CURRENT marker.
