ConsolidatedRemoteAccessInstaller Template

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)

The RemoteAccessInstaller spreadsheet is used for capturing application virtualization information. Systems such as Microsoft AppV and Citrix XenApp allow a user to access applications that are not installed on a local computer. This object allows you to provide applications that a user may access by specifying the installer evidence.

When populating the RemoteAccessInstaller, please note that an application can be identified by installer evidence. If the evidence does not match the ARL then no application will be created. The evidence not recognised will appear under the ‘Unrecognised Evidence’ screen within Flexnet Manager Suite. From there, you may create applications for any unrecognised evidence as required, and lastly ensure any new application relates to a license. This results in the evidence now being recognised for the new application and may cause license consumption after the next reconciliation.

If entering installer evidence, you must provide the following key identifier fields. + 1 = DisplayName

The following identifier fields are typically requried for matching evidence in the ARL, however are not mandatory. + 1 = Version + 2 = Publisher + 3 = Evidence

Installer evidence does not have to be specified in the InstallerEvidence spreadsheet as well as here.
