Inventory Object: ConsolidatedInstallerEvidence

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)

ConsolidatedInstallerEvidence objects are uploaded to the ConsolidatedInstallerEvidence table in the operations (inventory) database. Multiple imports will merge updated data with existing records, and add new records as applicable.

ConsolidatedInstallerEvidence provides a simpler interface to specify installed applications and their usage on computers. It combines the computer, installer evidence and usage details into a single row.

Attributes are listed here in alphabetical order.

Property Attributes Notes
AccessMode Alpha-numeric text (maximum 128 characters). Default: 1. Mandatory. Database key.

The access mode of the installer evidence. Leave this blank unless this row is a virtualized application. In that case choose one of the values below that matches your application or desktop virtualization infrastructure.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key. However, null values may cause import errors (where this object does not get imported), and multiple records from the same connection having nulls may cause data loss through over-writing. It is therefore best practice to treat this field as mandatory.
ComputerID Unsigned integer (bigint). Mandatory. Database key.

The identifier used in the source connection for the computer. It must match the ComputerID from the Computer spreadsheet or the row will be ignored.

DatabaseName Unsigned integer (bigint). Mandatory. Database key.

If this installer evidence is an Oracle Database, then this field specifies the name of the database.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key. However, null values may cause import errors (where this object does not get imported), and multiple records from the same connection having nulls may cause data loss through over-writing. It is therefore best practice to treat this field as mandatory.
DiscoveryDate An ASCII string of alphanumeric characters and punctuation (length 10 characters). May be null.

The date that the installer evidence was first seen.

The display name of the software as reported by the installer evidence.

Evidence Alpha-numeric text (maximum 32 characters). Default: . Mandatory. Database key.

Identifier for the type of installer evidence.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key. However, null values may cause import errors (where this object does not get imported), and multiple records from the same connection having nulls may cause data loss through over-writing. It is therefore best practice to treat this field as mandatory.
InstallDate An ASCII string of alphanumeric characters and punctuation (length 10 characters). May be null.

The install date of the installer evidence.

InstanceName Unsigned integer (bigint). Mandatory. Database key.

If this installer evidence is an Oracle Database, then this field specifies the name of the database instance. If there are multiple instances, create a row for each instance in this spreadsheet.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key. However, null values may cause import errors (where this object does not get imported), and multiple records from the same connection having nulls may cause data loss through over-writing. It is therefore best practice to treat this field as mandatory.
LastUsedDate An ASCII string of alphanumeric characters and punctuation (length 10 characters). May be null.

The last used date of the usage.

NumberOfSessions Unsigned integer (bigint). May be null.

The number of sessions that the installer evidence was in use by the user specified in the UserID column during the usage tracking period. If multiple users used the same application on the computer, create one row for each user with usage.

The product code of the evidence. This is usually the MSI product code.

Publisher Alpha-numeric text (maximum 200 characters). Default: . Mandatory. Database key.

The publisher of the software as reported by the installer evidence.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key.

StartDate An ASCII string of alphanumeric characters and punctuation (length 10 characters). May be null.

The start date of the usage.

UserID Unsigned integer (bigint). Mandatory. Database key.

The DOMAIN/SAMAccountName for the user that the installer evidence was used by. If this software was used by multiple users, create one row for each user of the software on the computer.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key. However, null values may cause import errors (where this object does not get imported), and multiple records from the same connection having nulls may cause data loss through over-writing. It is therefore best practice to treat this field as mandatory.
Version Alpha-numeric text (maximum 72 characters). Default: . Mandatory. Database key.

The version of the software as reported by the installer evidence.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key.
