These categories are useful for Reporting and License Compliance. In addition, applications in the Operating System category cannot be metered.
At a specified interval, the appliance collects information about every executable installed on managed devices. This information includes the executable’s publisher, published date, file size, and registry information.
Each KACE SMA has a single Software Catalog. If the Organization component is enabled on your appliance, all organizations use the same Software Catalog that is installed on the appliance. In addition, Locally Cataloged applications are available to all organizations.
Uncataloged applications, and settings such as metering and license configuration, however, are organization-specific. For example, if you enable metering for an application in one organization, it is enabled only for that organization. You enable metering and other settings separately for each organization.
