Using the Custom Labels node located under the Customize Catalog Configuration Manager console node, administrators can create custom labels used to group software titles that share a common attribute. For example, a group of titles can be labeled as site-licensed software or shareware in addition to software category and software family grouping information.

The information in this topic applies only to Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 and later.

Use the following procedure to create Asset Intelligence catalog custom labels.

Up to 100 custom labels can be created, but each software title can have only one to three custom labels associated with it and stored in the Asset Intelligence catalog.

To create a custom software category

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database (<site code> - <site name>) / Computer Management / Asset Intelligence / Customize Catalog / Custom Labels.

  2. Right-click Custom Labels, and click New Label to start the New Custom Label Wizard.

    If the Configuration Manager console action pane is displayed, the New Software Category Wizard can also be started by clicking New Category in the action pane.
  3. On the General page of the New Custom Label Wizard, specify a name for the new custom label and, optionally, a description.

    There is no validation state for custom labels because all custom labels are always user-defined.
  4. On the Summary page of the New Custom Label Wizard, review the new custom label information you have specified to ensure that it is correct before continuing. If changes need to be made, click Previous to return to the General page.
