Delete applications

Delete applications

Deleting applications from the Software page removes them from the Software page inventory, and also removes Managed Installations or File Synchronizations that are associated with applications.

However, if the deleted applications are installed on managed devices, the records for those applications are recreated, with new IDs, when the devices update inventory information. Managed Installations and File Synchronizations that were associated with the deleted applications, however, are not recreated.

Creating Software assets

Creating Software assets

To set up License Compliance for applications that appear on the Software page, you first need to add Software assets for those applications. After you create Software assets, you can associate them with License assets.

You can create assets for applications that have been added to the appliance automatically or manually.

If the Organization component is enabled on your appliance, you create Software assets for each organization separately.
