Cisco DNA Center provides many of its functions as individual applications, packaged separately from the core infrastructure. This enables you to install and run the applications that you want and uninstall those you are not using, depending on your preferences.
The number and type of application packages shown in the Software Updates window will vary, depending on your Cisco DNA Center version and your Cisco DNA Center licensing level. All the application packages that are available to you are shown, whether or not they are currently installed.
Some applications are so basic that they are required on nearly every Cisco DNA Center deployment. For a description of a package and whether it is required, hover over that package's name in the Updates tab.
Each Cisco DNA Center application package consists of service bundles, metadata files, and scripts.
Perform all application management procedures from the Cisco DNA Center GUI. Although you can perform many of these procedures using the CLI (after logging in to the shell), we do not recommend this. In particular, if you use the CLI to deploy or upgrade packages, you must ensure that no deploy or upgrade command is entered unless the results of the maglev package status command show all the packages as NOT_DEPLOYED, DEPLOYED, or DEPLOYMENT_ERROR. Any other state indicates that the corresponding activity in progress, and parallel deployments or upgrades are not supported.
