Software Inventory Report

Overview

Software Inventory Report displays the Software Inventory on specified Agents that can be filtered by Customer, Name or Publisher, Version and Agent Type.

You can search for Agents which have specified software installed. You can also search for installed software using Customer, Publisher, and Version parameters.

This report functions across all Customers. If, for instance, we searched for software that contains the string 'Office365', the results would show us ALL Agents with software installed that has 'Office365' in the name, regardless of which Customer the Agent belongs to.

 

Possible Use Cases

 Some examples for use cases are presented below:

  • Report on what software published by a specific vendor is installed on a specific customer's Agents.
  • Report on which PC Agents have a specific version of a specific software product installed.
