In System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, global conditions are rules that represent business or technical conditions that you can use to specify how an application is provided and deployed to client devices. You can create global conditions from the Global Conditions node of the Configuration Manager console or from within the Create Deployment Type Wizard. Global conditions are accessed from the Requirements page of the Create Deployment Type Wizard.

You can only edit global conditions from the site where they were created.

Use the following procedures to create Configuration Manager global conditions.
