New Application Transparency report especially helps embedded applications

Note:This feature is available with IT Asset Management.

A new Application Transparency report gives rich insights into the evidence collected as part of FlexNet inventory. It works for applications where you have selected the new Import detailed evidence check box (on the General tab of the application properties), and you may have either of two reasons for doing this:

You might want to investigate the specifics of collected inventory, rather than settling for the wildcard evidence matches used in regular application recognition. (This setting should be used only sparingly and temporarily for this purpose, as importing detailed evidence for many applications significantly increases the load on the database, and extends processing times.)
You may want to more closely manage licensing of 'embedded' applications. An embedded application is one (such as Oracle Java) that is supplied with, and licensed by, its 'parent' application (such as Oracle SQL Developer). Since the embedded application is already included in the parent license, you need a method to prevent it consuming from its own license as well, and therefore consuming from more than one license. That method is to provide a file path exemption, such that a known piece of file evidence (used for application recognition) that meets the requirements for the embedded application in terms of version and installation path on your devices is granted a "file path exemption". This exemption is visible in the Consumption tab of the license properties (for the separate license attached to the embedded application), where the Exemption reason column now displays Exempted by file path.
