Important note (January 5th 2023): a new "Application Transparency" report has been introduced from ITAM / FNMS 2022R1 onwards, please use this one. More information here.
Oracle has kept his customers and SAM consultants busy with Java, that depending on updates or even builds can be public or commercial (restricted).
The downside is a loss of visibility on recognized applications. A report mitigates this issue and allows to understand (for all products) the recognized applications... and the raw versions of the evidences that allowed to recognize the applications. the description is below... the code of the report is attached.
Recognized Applications Transparency Report (NR)
The Flexera ARL normalizes the raw evidences to make the data manageable and align with the licensing requirements. The applications are often normalized at major version level.
There is however a need (for Java particularly) to understand what is the underlying exact version of the evidences that have been recognized into the application (major version).
NOTE THAT THIS REPORT HAS BEEN RELEASED WITH ITAM 2021 31.4 / FNMS 2022R1.
The report shows all installations for the product named entered in the search filter (exact match on Product Name) and looks up all raw evidences that match this title for recognition (files (mandatory, at least one as a recognition rule, not ignored), installer (not ignored) or WMI (added with v5 of the report).
If several evidences led to the recognition of one installed application, there will be several rows in the report.
The report contains information on computer OS, location, corporate unit etc.
The version 4 of the report also manages the cases of suite recognition. For instance, if you enter "DB2" as an input, the report will return the suite components and the related file and installer evidences used for recognition. Version 4 greatly enhances performance.
