Installation Table

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)

The Installation table contains the latest installation status of each package for each user and computer. Success or failure of installations is recorded. When a package is uninstalled, its installation status record is removed from the table. When an installation is successful, the successful installation status record replaces any earlier failure status records. Once an installation is successful, the Installation table retains the successful installation status record even if there are subsequent failed installation attempts. If there have been any subsequent failed installations, the latest of these failure records is also be retained. For example, if an installation fails, and then succeeds on a subsequent attempt, only the successful status is recorded. If an installation succeeds, but a later installation attempt fails, then both the success and failure status records are stored. All other installations are added to the InstallationHistory table as new status information is generated.

Note: To cater for multi-tenant mode, this table may contain data for multiple tenants. Access requires that the database TenantID has been set in the SQL Server connection context information. That setting filters an underlying table to produce this view of data for the single, selected tenant.
