How to report evidence by machine name

Jump to solution

Can we get a report from FNMS that will report  a specific inventory evidence by machine name(s). 

 

Example: Is it possible to see the raw product version (16.0.12130.20344) for Office 365 2016 with all associated hardware devices.

Another example (use case) determining how to detect what devices are being inventoried by the Flexera Agent.

We can see for individual devices the information (see attachment) but we need to be able to see it in a report.

I received an email from @wdarrough, and I wanted to share it!  

I have been reviewing the question Olivia and Stephanie sent regarding Raw Evidence reporting. Beyond requesting some custom reports from operations on the backend database, this functionality is not provided by FNMS Cloud or FDP Cloud as OTB.

As far as FNMS. FNMS is built around SAM – and going to that level isn’t required for SAM which would be the “argument” for it not being exposed today. I can very much see it for SVM (Vulnerability scanning of particular versions with vulnerabilities) – where we DO have such reports available.

There is some talk about in FNMS Cloud 2019 r2 there would be some new views for linking FNMS evidence. This will include a Devices tab on the properties of evidence records which shows all devices which have that evidence found - this is the closest we have to a report across devices however it’s the normalized evidence instead of raw evidence.

Please let me know if you would like to discuss in more detail.
Thanks

I hope this helps those that has FNMS cloud.  We are going to put in a request for custom reports.

Hi,

It depends. For FNMS on prem, a custom report should easily cover this request. I guess, it will not be available on FNMS cloud.

Hi, 

If you are using on premise version you can try custom report we are using in our environment.

CR03 - Custom report returning the list of Inventory devices by Installer evidence. Attaching SQL file.

If needed I have similar for file evidence too.

Executed SQL will create custom report in WebUI.

@marius Thanks for the information above.  We are not on-prem we are using the cloud base product.  But I will speak with our CSM @wdarrough to see if this report can be built on the back-end for us.

 

Thank you both Marius and @mfranz for the quick responses.
