Containers Tab: Applications

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R2 (On-Premises)

For Applications tab under Remote Device Properties, see Applications Tab.

The Containers tab lists the applications installed in Docker images for this device.

This page displays the following columns (listed alphabetically). Some columns are displayed by default and others can be displayed through the column chooser. To manage columns and other UI options, see the topics under Managing Columns in a Table.

Table 1. Applications tab details
Field Description

The broad function of the application, by default from the UN Standard Products and Services Code.


The type of software, especially as it relates to licensing (freeware, commercial, component, and so on).

The edition of an application, as specified by the publisher of this application.
Note: Many applications do not specify an edition.
Evidence capability
Most application evidence is used to identify whether an application is installed on a device. Some evidence may identify whether the application was accessed by a user. This column identifies the kinds of evidence so far linked to the application, with the following values:
  • Installation
  • Access
  • Installation and Access — There is evidence available for either purpose, or both.
  • None — The application has not been linked to any evidence records (by default, there is also an alert displayed on the application name highlighting the same shortcoming). You should try to remedy this situation, as without evidence, consumption for any license linked to this application cannot be calculated.

Displays Yes when the application originated in the Application Recognition Library, but someone in your enterprise has added extra evidence to the application definition. A No means the application comes from the Application Recognition Library and is unchanged.

Not editable. Updated automatically when evidence is linked to the application defined by the Application Recognition Library.

Flexera ID

A generated code that uniquely identifies all application records, and can be used for integration between products from Flexera.

Image ID

Unique identifier of the image. Populated for the image and containers instantiated from it. (Remains blank for any Kubernetes pod not running a container.) You can click on this link to open the Container Image Properties page for this image.

License name
The name of the license linked to the application found in this container image.
Note: Applications installed in containers will not impact the consumption from any of your licenses. This functionality is planned for a future release.
Tip: The License name displayed is intentionally shown empty to indicate that there is no license consumption for these applications.
The items referenced in this row, displayed by default as a hierarchy tree. The hierarchy depends on whether this row reflects an environment managed by Docker Engine or Kubernetes. For Docker Engine:
  • Container host
  • Image
  • Container.
For Kubernetes:
  • Kubernetes cluster
  • Container host (the Kubernetes worker node)
  • Kubernetes pod
  • Image
  • Container.
Information in the tree can be expanded or contracted by clicking on the + or - controls next to each name.
Tip: Doing a search or filter on the table flattens the hierarchy into a simple list of results.

Displays the application name, excluding references to the publisher, version or edition.

Repository tags
The repository tag(s) of this container or image. Tags typically identify different versions of a Docker image. This value is only populated when the Type is:
  • Image — displays any repository tags associated with this image
  • Container — the repository tag for the image used to launch this container, which is most often the same as the tag associated with the image, but may be different where one of multiple tags was selected.
The origin of an application record:
  • Flexera — Shown when the application is downloaded in Application Recognition Library (if so, you cannot edit any of the application’s properties, but can link it to additional evidence).
  • Local — Shown when an operator in your enterprise created the record for this application.
  • Flexera (Extended) — Shown when an operator added additional evidence to the original record from Application Recognition Library.

Displays Yes if this application is a suite (that is, contains child applications), and otherwise No.

You can select any application record and click Open to view the Application Properties for the selected application. You can also click the Product link to view the application properties.
