On the Products page you can manage localboot and netboot products and also configure them for different opsi-servers or opsi-Clients.

Navigate to Clients and click theProductsbutton in the top right corner of the table header for a split view of clients and products. This allows the user to multitask like selecting clients and managing their products more easily.

Product States

If no client is selected, the Products page lists the products of the selected server. If a product has multiple and conflicting values for the currently selected clients/servers, a <mixed> status will be displayed in the corresponding field, with more information in the tooltip. The different colored icons in each table column indicate the following:

  • Installation Status:


    At least one of the selected clients has an unknown installation status.


    All selected clients have either installed or not-installed/none/null status.

  • Action Result:


    At least one of the selected clients has an failed action result.


    All selected clients have either successful or none/null action result.

  • Product Version: If multiple servers and clients are selected, you can click the tooltip to view the installed version for the clients.

    • Client related:


      At least one of the selected clients has an outdated product from its server.

    • Server related:


      All selected servers have the same product version.


      The selected servers have different versions of the product.


      Not every selected server has this product.

Note that the above multi-valued columns can be sorted. It is sorted in the following (or reverse) order:


installed - unknown - none/not_installed


successful - failed - none


outdated on clients and unequal on servers - outdated on clients and not on every servers - outdated on clients - unqual on some servers

When sorting in descending order, none/not_installed always appears last in the order.

Product Groups

Currently it is not possible to add a product to a group in opsi-webgui, but if groups are already defined in your environment (e.g. via opsi-configed), you can select the groups.
