App Center as an essential part of UCS
In the Univention App Center you will find a constantly growing number of software solutions from different manufacturers for a variety of use cases, for companies and public institutions. These apps can be easily installed in the App Center, integrated into your own IT and conveniently managed via the central management system of UCS 5. One aim of UCS 5 is to make the integration of apps even easier and more efficient. Apps can be managed and updated completely independently by the providers. The release process continues to go through internal tests and quality assurance processes to ensure functionality as well as quality.
The update of core elements of UCS also made it necessary to check and adapt all apps. With the release, Univention has made the most important of its own apps directly available, and many others have since been adapted to UCS 5 by the app providers and Univention. Apps that are still outstanding will be updated in the coming months.
For example, the following apps have recently been migrated and are available for UCS 5:
- opsi – Client Management
- Microsoft 365 Connector
- agorum core pro
- itslearning LMS Connector
- Apple School Manager Connector
