To install a software version on a single device:

  1. Go to the Devices tab.

  2. Select the needed device.

  3. In the Hardware section, select the needed control unit type.

OTA Connect remotely installs the software version on your device.

Turn on automatic updates on a single device

If you need to send automatic tests to a device, you can set your device to update automatically any time you push a new software version.

Automatic updates only get created when you push a new image while auto-updates are turned on. Turning on auto-updates for a device does not trigger updates for any images that were already in the repository at the time auto-updates were activated.

To turn on automatic updates:

  1. Go to the Devices tab.

  2. Select the needed device.

  3. In the Hardware section, select the needed control unit type.

  4. On the Software pane, select the software for which you want to turn on automatic updates.
