Hi,

the history of an inventory device shows (Affected field=Software Application):

Event type 'Link' and 'Unlink' we can see always, but 'Delete' is rarely.

Can you please explain why some applications have 'Delete' and 'Unlink' ?

Btw, what means source: SQLCMD?

Regards

I expect the "Delete" events here occur when an application that is currently recognized as installed on a computer is deleted from the ARL.

SQLCMD is a SQL Server tool that is used to run SQL scripts that perform the ARL update process - so I'm thinking that these events may indicate that the identified applications were deleted from the ARL in one of the updates that were published by Flexera.

@ChrisG 
Perfect. Thanks a lot for the answer.
It was also my guess but I want to be sure to understand it correctly.
