Inventory of new versions of software.
Very easy question here. I just am having a hard time finding the best solution. I am trying to group all of Adobe's Acrobat versions together for inventory. I want to have a software release to have all of different versions under that one entry. (For example, 10.1.10 and 10.1.07 would find under Acrobat 10) I am trying to correctly meter the licenses we have availble. Is there a good way or a how to for this? I looked that the manual but it doesn't help me out too well. Thank you.
I don't think there is an
I don't think there is an out-of-the box software product definiton for Adobe Acrobat X (10). Under the Software view, go to Newly Discovered software. In the content pane, you will see a list of software resources. Use the search box at top to find acrobat x. Select one of them and on the right, you'll see an option to "Manage this software." You will now be creating a Software Product. On the Identify Inventory tab, make sure the search criteria is broad enough to catch all software resources you wish to associate with the product, but specific enough that all software is version 10.x. Then, when you go to the meter/track usage tab, that same software will be listed and you can configure metering.
