You can assign users to different channels by doing the following:

  1. Identify the users for which you want to assign a channel.

  2. Create an Active Directory group for these users.

  3. Using the Group Policy (GPO) mechanism, push the following registry setting to specify an update server.  

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

    • Key: Selected Update Channel

    • Type: String (REG_SZ)

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

  4. Let users download and run the iManageInstaller.exe file, which downloads all applications and components that support Auto Updates. 

You can also specify the channel that should be selected automatically for users at install time using the following command line option: UPDATECHANNEL=‚ÄĚchannel_name"

For example: iManageInstaller.exe UPDATESERVERPATH=server_name.com/myupdateserver UPDATECHANNEL=beta
