FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

InstallAnywhere is a package installation solution developed by Flexera. Packages track their installation status in an XML file, which is interrogated by this pattern.

After collection of the inventory data, a Detail node is linked to the host computer for each package installed on the computer:

Property Value
name The name of the application as identified by InstallAnywhere.
type FNMP_InstallerEvidence
vendor The publisher of the application
version The release number of the application.
install_date The date that the application was installed on this host computer.
evidence IA (fixed string literal).
key A unique key for this installation record, combining (with the different literal text separators shown) the values of name:version/type:evidence/host.key

To configure the InstallAnywhereEvidence pattern:

  1. In the user interface for BMC Discovery, select the Discovery tab.
  2. Click Pattern Management, and from the list of patterns at the bottom of the page, ensure that your current Flexera.FNMP.InventoryRawData item is enabled, and select it. (The module must be enabled before any of its member patterns can operate.)
    Tip: The InstallAnywhereEvidence pattern is enabled by default when the pattern collection is initially enabled. If it has previously been disabled, you can re-enable it with the remainder of this procedure.
  3. From the Pattern Package properties, select the link for the Pattern Module.
  4. Scroll down to the Pattern Configuration area.
  5. In the InstallAnywhereEvidence group, click Edit Configuration.
  6. Select the True radio button for Report installations by InstallAnywhere.
  7. Click Apply (at the bottom of this group).
