Agent Third-Party Deployment: Details

IT Asset Management (Cloud)

This chapter provides great detail about the FlexNet Inventory Agent deployed by methods of your own choosing (not using IT Asset Management to perform adoption), and installed on target devices for subsequent control by downloaded policy (labeled the Agent third-party deployment case in Deployment Overview: Where to, and How). Keep in mind that this label is a shorthand for "the full FlexNet Inventory Agent deployed using third party tools". If you are looking for details about how in general to deploy inventory-gathering code elements, see the Implementation topic within the Details chapter for each of the methodological cases.

This document provides a consistent set of data (as far as possible) across all the different use cases, each in its own chapter. This means that, once you have chosen your preferred use case, you can focus only on the details for that one, and ignore all other use case chapters.

Because FlexNet inventory collection supports a range of operating system platforms, some topics necessarily contain several sets of information, and you can select only those details that apply to your chosen platform(s).

In addition to the distinct chapters for the different use cases, you should also review the subsequent chapter on functionality that is common throughout. This is followed by detailed reference material on command lines, preferences, file formats, and the like.
