Software Asset Counts
I am using 'Software Assets' to track the installation of applications in the environment. I want to use the capabilities of the tool to verify the quantities against actual purchases.
I have created the pieces involved, but need to understand the drivers between the different pieces and how they relate to each other. I have 'Purchase Orders', 'Line Items', Licenses' and 'Software Assets' in place for a sample of my applications. Ideally I would like to have a PO/Line Item created to drive the license count which can verify against the count in the Software Asset.
What fields drive this and is there a good reference document I can go to?
Someone else may be able to jump in and provide some more specifics for your case.
1) In the Asset Management settings, you can just change the Software Update time to now +5 mins.
2) In the SW Asset view select some or all in the view using Ctrl, Shift or Ctrl-A, and select the task.
3) Wait for the scheduled run time that shows in the setting you look at in #1. Should be daily at night or least active time.
