The Software Title Installation report can help you prepare for an audit by showing the licensing status of a software title.
Use the parameters section at the top of the report to choose the software title or the publisher whose licensing details will be displayed in the report.
The report identifies the following for each software title:
Installed Quantity: The number of titles currently installed (based on discovery data).
Excluded Quantity: The number of software titles that have been excluded from the Installed count. Software titles are removed from the Installed count when they are installed on a hardware asset whose life cycle status indicates that it is not being used; for example, software installed on a Disposed asset should not be included. Because these software titles are no longer considered installed, the licensing status of the software title changes for the positive. For more details on how to exclude software titles (through their associated software items) and why, see Software administration settings.
Total Licenses: The total number of licenses that you have for the software title.
Click on any item in a row to open the Software License Distribution report for the software title.
The following indicators are also applicable for each title on software reports:
a red indicator if the title is under licensed
a yellow indicator if the title is over licensed or if it is nearly under licensed
a green indicator if the proportion of purchased licenses to installed licenses is acceptable
For more details about the colored indicators used for licensing status, see Status indicators.
