16 - What Do the Installation Status/Non-Status Badges Mean?
Installation Status Badges
There are different badges for the several app installation status, as shown below.
It’s the most common status for an installation, representing an installation where everything is working as expected.
A transient status that represents a pending installation waiting for partner confirmation.
Whether because the app provider wasn’t reachable when AppConnect tried to send the installation details, or because it failed to confirm the installation, the app icon is rendered dimmed and with an error badge. A retry mechanism is fired as soon as this failed app installation is loaded by the user’s browser.
While awaiting an asynchronous update, a blue sync badge appears over the app icon.
For example, this icon appears when someone with permission to manage an installation adds or removes users, or changes auto-installation rules. In the meantime, users can launch the app. Managers can see installation details (open the management modal), but they can't edit them. The badge will disappear upon completion of the process (the partner accepts or rejects the update).
Status rendered if an update failed to rollback. This status is not recoverable, therefore it requires further action from Talkdesk. Users are advised to open a request when in this status.
When an installation trial period is over, the app icon is then rendered with a small yellow warning badge. From here, the user has the ability to manage and choose a different subscription plan, or uninstall the app.
A new app version has been submitted or was made available for this account, and requires user action to be upgraded. By clicking the green update badge, a new window will appear, requiring the user to consent to recent changes.
App Version is Manually Provisioned
On some occasions, partner apps are manually provisioned. This means the partner has to do manual work before responding to installation or change requests. The icon (Figure 46) informs the user that operations may be slower than usual when installing, updating, upgrading, or removing the app, due to manual operations on the partner's side. The icon is permanent and appears whenever the currently installed app version or the app version being installed or upgraded is manually provisioned. The icon will be temporarily hidden whenever higher priority icons need to be displayed, including
failed update/installation or generic alerts.
Hovering over an app icon, a gear badge appears in the top-right corner. Clicking this badge opens the management window where a user may add or remove licenses to users, configure auto-provisioning of licenses, uninstall the app, etc.
Only users belonging to roles with App Manage permissions will see this badge.
When the Force Uninstall feature is available on an account (whitelisted), a badge appears in the lower-right corner of the app icon. Clicking this icon forces an app to be uninstalled, regardless of its current status.
