Uncataloged applications are executables that are in the KACE SMA inventory but that do not appear in the Software Catalog. You can view applications that are listed as Uncataloged on the Software Catalog page. However, you cannot enable metering for Uncataloged applications, mark them as Not Allowed, or add license information for them. Uncataloged applications must be added to the local or public Software Catalog before they can be metered, marked as Not Allowed, or associated with license information. See Uncataloged applications.
The User Console is the web-based interface that makes software, scripts, and other downloadable items available to users on a self-service basis. It also enables users to access Knowledge Base articles and to file Service Desk support tickets to request help or report issues. To access the User Console, go to http://<KACE_SMA_hostname>/user where <KACE_SMA_hostname> is the hostname of your appliance. See About Service Desk.
