Definitive Media Library (DML)


A Definitive Media Library (DML) is a set of secure storage areas in which an organization's definitive, authorized versions of application configuration items (CI) (software and software packages) are stored and protected, together with their path.

This ensures that the same version of software will be installed on every new workstation.

Notes

 

  • You can add a CI to the DML from the CI form by selecting the Integrated to the DML box.
  • The only software to be used in a release is the one listed in the DML.

Example

Storage of the Oracle Client software installation package:
