After a base layer capture is completed, the revised base layer is distributed and stored at each endpoint desktop, and then assigned at each endpoint .

Assigning a base layer to an endpoint, or collection of endpoints, applies the contents of the base layer to the designated endpoints. Any applications, updates, or patches built in the base layer also reside on the endpoint device. See Assign a Base Layer to CVDs.

Processes similar to assigning a base layer are employed to assign applications associated with app layers to endpoints. See Assign an App Layer to CVDs.
