Category

The broad function of the application, by default from the UN Standard Products and Services Code.

Classification

Edition
The edition of an application, as specified by the publisher of this application.
Note: Many applications do not specify an edition.
Extended

Displays Yes when the application originated in the Application Recognition Library, but someone in your enterprise has added extra evidence to the application definition. A No means the application comes from the Application Recognition Library and is unchanged.

Flexera ID

A generated code that uniquely identifies all application records, and can be used for integration between products from Flexera.

Last used date
If reported by an inventory tool, this column contains the last date when this application was used. The column is blank when either:
  • Usage tracking is not configured for this application
  • There is no inventory record of usage in the configured tracking period (see the Usage tab).
License name
The license name may be:
  • Copied from the first-linked software product
  • Derived from the License Name field of the SKU in the first-linked purchase (or if there is no SKU, from the purchase Description field)
  • Created manually.
Name
The application's name, which may be:
  • Set by the Application Recognition Library, and not editable (for applications with Source: Flexera)

Product

The basic name of the application, excluding the publisher and references to versions or editions. This field displays the value Multiple products for multi-product licenses that have multiple primary products. See Multi-Product License.

Source
The origin of an application record:
  • Flexera — Shown when the application is downloaded in Application Recognition Library (if so, you cannot edit any of the application’s properties, but can link it to additional evidence).
  • Local — Shown when an operator in your enterprise created the record for this application.
  • Flexera (Extended) — Shown when an operator added additional evidence to the original record from Application Recognition Library.
Suite

Displays Yes if this application is a suite (that is, contains child applications), and otherwise No. Remember that a non-suite (has no children) may itself be a member of a suite.
