Creating Project With Multiple Collector Runs



This KB Article is designed to demonstrate the steps a DPACK user (End User, Dell User, and Channel Partner/OEM User) should take to create a project with multiple collector runs.  

Prerequisite Information

  • All DPACK collector runs are already available within the DPACK account creating the project.  This can be accomplished by either an End User previously sharing one or more projects with a DPACK account, data was streamed to the DPACK account of either a Dell User or Channel partner account during a collector run via requested DPACK capture, and uploading of SIOKIT files by Dell User and Channel Partner accounts.


Step 1:  Login to DPACK 2.0 with your credentials and access your profile

Access the DPACK 2.0 portal ( and login with your account credentials.

If you have never logged into DPACK 2.0 before, go to and request your account be created or contact your Dell Sales Team and request they register you to the DPACK portal.


Step 2:  Click View Collector Runs button on DPACK dashboard

To search collector runs associated with a DPACK account, click the View Collector Runs button on the DPACK dashboard.  This will allow a DPACK user to review all of their collector runs.


Step 3:  Add collector runs to action group

Scroll down in Collector Runs search page until the list of associated collector runs is show.  For all of the DPACK collector runs that are to be assigned to the project being created, click Add to Group.



Each collector run selected should look similar to below.



Step 4:  Enter name of DPACK project and submit request

After all collector runs are selected, click "View Group" and expand the Group Actions section.  The only remaining task is to provide a name of the new project and click Apply.  This will begin the processing of the DPACK project.Create_Project.PNG

Once all collector runs are uploaded and the project has been created, the following notice should popup on the screen.  Click OK to be sent to the DPACK Viewer for the project.


Step 5:  Request that your project be prepared by your Dell Systems Consultant (optional)

Your report may need to be prepared by a Dell Systems Consultant of your choice. If prompted to notify them that you are ready to have your report prepared, choose whether to send it to the default Systems Consultant on your account or a specific DPACK portal account via their email address and use the ‘Request Report’ button to send the notification.


Step 6:  Project is ready for review

After your Systems Consultant has prepared your project, you will receive a notice via email.  You will also see your project listed under the "Latest Projects" heading on your portal dashboard.  You can now view your project and review the information collected with DPACK.
