MDS Package order

Is there a way to set the package order sequence?

As an example, we have a package that we install and we then have to install the volume license app second.

How does MDS determine which app gets installed first? I have tried naming the packages in numerical order but that does not seem to set the sequence.

The are installed in alphanumerical order, but have to be in the same category (before macOS installed, after macOS installed, first boot, etc).


Hi Tim,

I thought that it would be also in this way but attached are two screenshots.

One is of the actual folder on my computer and it is sorted properly. The other is inside MDS. Now unless the actual deployment does it in alphanumeric and the preview in MDS is ignored?

That is correct. When the packages are installed, they are installed in alphanumberic order (as shown in the Finder).


Awesome thanks for the clarification!
