Assigning channels to users

Channels can be assigned to users by setting the following registry setting:

  • Location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\iManage\AgentServices\AutoUpdate

  • Key: Selected Update Channel

  • Type: String (REG_SZ)

  • Value: Any string; it should not include spaces if there are multiple words, for example, "beta_channel" (not "beta channel")

In addition, instead of relying on the default value in the update.ini file, administrators can roll out a channel from the command line to bootstrap the initial installation. Administrators can achieve this by running the installer with the following argument: UPDATECHANNEL=”channel_name".

For example: iManageInstaller.exe UPDATECHANNEL=beta
