This article assumes you understand the introduction to deployment provided by the article Deploy Code42 apps.

  • These instructions apply to the Code42 cloud. If you work in an on-premises Code42 environment, see Manage app installations in your Code42 environment.
  • To use these deployment tools, you need to sign in to your Code42 console as a user with the Security Administrator role. 
  • In the Code42 federal environment, app installations must be deployed with a deployment policy to ensure the use of FIPS encryption in the Code42 app. Users cannot download the installation package from the Code42 console or an email message.

Deployment is a secure process:

  • During installation, device-server communications are encrypted.
  • Devices can use a proxy to reach the Code42 cloud. See the PROXY_URL parameter.
  • Deployment can run silently, with no intervention from users at devices.

About user detection scripts

Code42 relies on usernames having an email format, for instance, A user detection script detects the usernames in another system, such as a directory service, and transforms them to a username format that Code42 can use. When you create a user detection script, you must customize it for the system where you need to detect usernames.

To make it easier to create a user detection script that's right for your situation, we provide example scripts for Windows and Mac systems. You can use these examples as a starting place when creating your own user detection script.
