Service Bundles

Deploying pre-configured sets of services to your end users

  • Updated on Sep 09, 2021


The Desktop App displays Service Bundles to end users as a group of services that belong to the same project or category. For example, create a bundle of Infrastructure Services used by the Engineering team for specific services and projects. Service bundles can be used to organize services for easy browsing, allowing end users to favorite autorun services when the Desktop App launches, and for bulk connecting to several services simultaneously.

Manage Service Bundles

You can also manage service bundles via the service APIs.

To create a service bundle:

1. In the Banyan Command Center, navigate to Settings > Desktop & Mobile > Service Bundles.

2. Click + Add Bundle.

3. Enter the service bundle name and description. Then, select the services to be included with the bundle and either enable or disable the end user’s ability to connect to all services with a single click in the Desktop App.

4. Click Save.

You can return to Settings > Desktop & Mobile > Service Bundles at any time to edit (for example, add/remove services, enable/disable one-click connect of all services in the bundle, etc.) or delete a service bundle.

Access Service Bundles in the Desktop App

After you have configured a service bundle, it will appear in the Service Bundles tab of the Desktop App for applicable end users according to each service’s configured policy.

Then, end users can favorite services, set services to autorun when the Desktop App launches, and connect individual (or all) services.

User-defined Service Bundles

In Banyan Desktop App v2.3+, end users can also select create their own service bundles to group services for easy access. User-defined service bundles persist across all of the user’s registered devices.
