Oracle Java has been added to Oracle GLAS evidence archive

IT Asset Management version 2022 R1.6

The FlexNet Inventory Agent, whether running locally on an Oracle server or using the zero footprint inventory collection method remotely from a suitable inventory beacon, can regularly return additional information on the Java installations found on the system being scanned as well as uploading special files required for review by the Oracle Global Licensing and Advisory Services (GLAS) to check your compliance with license terms and conditions.

There are two new controls in IT Asset Management to manage this data flow:
  • In the Inventory Settings page (Data Collection > IT Assets Inventory Tasks > Inventory Settings), a new Enable collection of Oracle Java audit data check box authorizes your updated FlexNet Inventory Agents to start collecting and uploading the Oracle Java data, as part of their normal upload cycle. (Any earlier versions of FlexNet Inventory Agents that have not been updated simply ignore this policy setting.)
  • Access the IT Asset Management Settings General page (Administration > IT Asset Management Settings > General), and in its Inventory tab, the Include Oracle Java check box adds the information about Oracle Java into the standard archive, ready for submission for audit when required.

For more information, see the online help under Discovery & Inventory > Inventory Settings Page > Oracle Java Scanning.
