For each software title that has been allocated, the Software Title Allocation report shows you what the title is allocated to, the number of allocations it has, and the number of installed and allocated software items (based on discovery information). Titles are allocated to organizations, cost centers or locations. Software titles that have not been allocated are omitted from the report and from the Total Installed count.
Summary data for each software title is as follows:
Publisher: The Publisher of the software.
Total Allocated: The total number of allocations for the title, which is further divided into the number allocated per cost center, organization or location.
Total Installed: The total number of software items installed and allocated, which is further divided into the number per cost center, organization or location. There may be additional items installed, but unless they are allocated they are not included in the total.

In order for this report to produce proper data, the following relationships need to be set up:
A computer CI must have an installed software item. Usually the relationship between them occurs automatically based on discovery data.
The computer CI must be linked to a hardware asset. Usually the relationship between them occurs automatically based on a match of the serial number or asset tag.
The software item must be mapped to a software title. This is a manual step that you need to perform, see Using the software catalog.
The software title must be allocated to an organization, a cost center or a location. This is a manual step that you need to perform, see Allocating software licenses.
The hardware asset must have its location, organization and cost center information completed. This is a manual step that you need to perform, unless you have imported the data using a connector.
