About receiving software catalog items
Receiving the software catalog items lets you add a new software purchase configuration item or update the data of the existing software purchase.
See About receiving items.
When you receive a new software catalog item, a new software purchase configuration item is created.
The data for each software catalog item is handled as follows:
The Display Name field defines the name of the software purchase.
The Owner field defines the Software Purchase Owners.
Details of the receiving software catalog item are added to the Comment field of the software purchase.
The Software Purchases' Associated Catalog Item association is set.
The Quantity of the software catalog item is written to the Quantity field of the software purchase.
The System Number, Serial Number, and Barcode fields are ignored.
If you update a software purchase configuration item that is already created in the database, you must specify in the Received Item Line Items table the Existing Resource that you want to update.
