Deploy Once Window

In PDQ Deploy, a deployment is the process of deploying one or more packages to one or more target computers. Use the Deploy Once window to select target computers, select credentials, and set additional deployment properties for immediate deployment.

To view the Deploy Once window:

1.On the tree, expand the Packages folder, then select a package.

2.On the Package page, click Deploy > Deploy Once (or press Ctrl+D), or click Deploy Once on the toolbar.

The Deploy Once window has two primary components—the Targets Editor and Deployment properties. The following table describes the deployment properties.




The name of the package(s) being deployed.

Targets Editor

Selects the target computers for deployment. Type a computer name or click Choose Targets to select computer names from target lists or external sources such as Active Directory, PDQ Inventory, Spiceworks, Target Lists, and Text Files. For more information about targets, see Creating a Target List, Part 2: Choose Targets.

NOTE: You can also paste a target computer name (or list of names) directly into the Targets Editor section. If copying a list of names, ensure that there is only one target computer name per line.


Selects the credentials to be used during this deployment.

Run As

Set the credentials used to execute package steps on the target computer. Deploy User is the recommended and most common setting. For more information about when and why to use other options, see Run Packages As in Credentials Preferences.

IMPORTANT: Pro or Enterprise mode is required to use Deploy User (Interactive) or Logged on User.

Post Deployment Notification (Pro or Enterprise mode)

Sends an email report when the deployment finishes.

IMPORTANT: You must configure both the Mail Server settings in Preferences as well as designate at least one email recipient in the selected Post Deployment Notification before you can enable this option.

Remember these targets for next time

Saves the list of targets to use the next time you start a deployment with this window.

Retry Queue (Enterprise mode only)

Determines if offline target computers will be placed in the Retry queue. For more information, see Retry Queue.


Use settings from Package

Uses the Retry Queue settings from the package. Clear this checkbox to set custom retry settings for the deployment. For more information, see Deployments.
