Applications in the Software Catalog are grouped into categories, such as Productivity Applications and Antivirus Utilities.
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.
The information is compared to information in the Software Catalog to determine whether Discovered applications are Cataloged or Uncataloged. See Schedule metering and inventory collection intervals.
Each appliance 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.
Similarly, Discovered applications are also organization-specific. Applications are marked as Discovered only if they are found in the inventory of the organization.
The application categories in the Software Catalog are localized to match the appliance locale setting. However, application names, such as Microsoft Excel, are not localized.
