BlueJeans Deployment Using SCCM MSI Deployment Guide

Hello Everyone!! Here we come with another deployment post for you all. Today we will learn about BlueJeans Deployment Using SCCM. Here we will show you a detailed step-by-step guide for deploying Bluejeans to Windows 10/11 devices using SCCM (Configuration Manager).

With BlueJeans by Verizon, you can conduct video conferences over the internet using an interoperable cloud-based service that offers a free trial of BlueJeans Meetings to explore the experience and ensure it meets your needs.

The Zoom meeting interface is pretty similar to BlueJeans except for some added features on the main screen. In addition to using standards-based encryption by default, Bluejeans and Zoom offer end-to-end encryption as an option. However, Bluejeans and Zoom offer different user engagement and file sharing capabilities.

The MSI application is the best method to deploy BlueJeans to Windows 10/11 devices. BlueJeans provides two distinct MSI packages that IT Administrators can use to install BlueJeans for windows per machine or individual user installation. It would be best if you chose the installer based on your requirements.

What is an MSI file?

Windows packages that contain installation information, including files to be installed and installation locations, are called MSI files. The EXE and MSI files both install and launch Windows programs. The EXE file may not always contain an installer and may launch the program it has when double-clicked. An MSI file, however, always includes an installer.

BlueJeans Deployment Using SCCM

Let’s start with the Deployment of BlueJeans using SCCM. As told earlier, we are using the MSI file for Bluejeans Deployment. You will see why the availability of MSI files for any application is always a joy for SCCM Admin. We don’t need to work on prerequisites as we used to tell you in the previous posts.

  • All we have to do is download the MSI installer and the logo of the Bluejeans as we know it is available for download, and our half job is done.

One can easily download the 64-bit application directly from BlueJeans. They have provided different setups for different environments. One can easily differentiate and choose the right setup for the Windows 64-bit architecture.

The following table gives you all the details required for the Bluejeans Deployment tool using SCCM. This includes the command line for Bluejeans silent install, Product Code, etc.

Create BlueJeans Application Using SCCM Console

In this MSI application deployment guide, we will use the SCCM admin console to create an application. To start with the Application creation part, copy the downloaded setup to the package source location of the SCCM Server.

  • Navigate to SCCM Console \Software Library\Overview\Application Management\Applications.
  • Right-click on Applications and select Create Application.

Also in the General Information Tab shown below, you will see it imports the install behavior/command (msiexec /i “BlueJeans.2.37.801m” /q) from the installer itself.

  • Silent Command Line for Bluejeans = msiexec /i “BlueJeans.2.37.801m” /q
