Associating a software product item to a software resource

Asset Management Suite

A software resource represents a common way to describe a specific instance of a software application so that all software-related actions can identify it accurately. For example, a software resource is Asset Management Solution 7.0.1341.0 English.

You create a software resource for the software that you want to manage. For example, you can create a software resource for the software that is installed on client computers in your network.

To make the software license compliance work, you must associate a software product item to a software resource. A software product item can have one or multiple software resources linked to it.

This task is a step in the process for managing your software license compliance on the Asset Management Solution pages.

See Managing your software license compliance on the Asset Management Solution pages

To manually associate a software product item to a software resource

  1. Open the software resource for editing.

    See Adding or editing a software resource

  2. On the software resource page, on the Properties tab, in the Software Product drop-down list, click the software product that you want to link to the software resource.

    This option is not available if you have Asset Management Suite and Client Management Suite or IT Management Suite installed. In this case, you must manage software license compliance through the Software view.
