Viewing Software Catalog information

Viewing Software Catalog information

You can view application information on the Software Catalog page.

View lists of Discovered and Not Discovered applications

View lists of Discovered and Not Discovered applications

On the Software Catalog list, you can view Discovered and Not Discovered applications.

Discovered applications are executables in the inventory that match the definitions of applications in the Software Catalog. You can enable metering for Discovered applications and suites, mark them as Not Allowed, and add license information for them. In addition, the Discovered application list can be exported in CSV format. You can export the Discovered application list, the Uncataloged list, and the Locally Cataloged list; you cannot export the entire Software Catalog.

Applications that do not exist in the inventory, but that do exist in the Quest KACE Software Catalog, are referred to as Not Discovered applications. You can enable metering for Not Discovered applications, mark them as Not Allowed, and add license information for them. However, because the applications have not been found in the local inventory, the Not Discovered application list cannot be exported in CSV format.

On the Software Catalog list, you can view applications that are Uncataloged.

Uncataloged applications are executables that are in the appliance inventory but that do not appear in the Software Catalog. You can view applications that are listed as Uncataloged on the Software Catalog list. 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.

Information that is available for Uncataloged applications differs from information that is available for applications whose titles are listed in the public version of the Software Catalog. For example, some information that is available for Cataloged applications might not be available for Uncataloged applications. The information available for Uncataloged applications is limited to the information collected from managed devices.
