Software Installed Count and Software Metering

Peter_ChongPeter_Chong Customer IT Monkey ✭


Good day. Can you advise if Cierson is capable of detecting the software installations by discovering itself and a combination of SCCM, or would you need to tell it to search for a certain software pattern? I'm trying to understand when looking at Configuration Items-->Asset Management-->All Software Assets if the 'Installed Count' is correct. I would like to understand how this works so I can setup the software metering.

    Hi Brett. Thank you for the detailed explanation. So, essentially it really is dependent on matching the software pattern.

    Right now, I'm looking at the Software Pattern. If I input a value in this field, will Cierson update/refresh the installed count immediately, or would it take time to detect the pattern to pull the data?

    I will give it a try. Thanks again Brett.
