The Software Inventory app analyzes and displays a list of installed applications and services for each resource. This feature enables users to gain insights into the software landscape of their resources, providing valuable information about the applications and services that are installed and running on those resources.

Configuration Parameters

  • Query: Use the query to select the entities that you wish to include in the report.
    • Default query: The default query {state=active AND monitorable=true AND agentInstalled=true} will be populated by default when an asset inventory app opens. User can modify/delete the default query and run his specific query.
    • Using an OpsQL query, you can customize the report result. If users did not select “state” and “monitorable” attributes in the query string, in that case the user selection query would be appended by default with “state” and “monitorable” attributes.
      For example: If a user only selects the aliasName attribute, the query will automatically append state = “active” AND monitorable = “true”
      The query will look like as below:
      state = “active” AND monitorable = “true” AND (aliasName = “xxxxxx”)
  • Client Selection: You can select a single client/ All clients from the dropdown list. Only selected client data will get into the report.
  • Select Report Content: The content that is chosen has been added to the report. You can select either from:
    • Application: To generate the report of installed applications of your resources.
    • Services: To generate the report of installed services of your resources.
