Unconfigured Applications Panel
Find information about Windows applications that exactly or closely match applications in the Cherwell Software Identification Database (CSID), or are identified as Linux, Unix, or Mac OS applications but have not yet been configured into license units.
Unconfigured applications are grouped into categories shown in the tree on the left pane. All unconfigured applications are listed under the Identified folder, which means that they were found during the inventory process and are not yet configured into license units.
- Linux, Mac OS,
and Unix folders: Files identified on each platform that have not
yet been configured into license units.
- Look through these lists carefully and only configure the applications that you are interested in. Move applications you don't want to track or that are not individually licensed to the Don't configure list (see below).
- Windows exact
match: Executable files (.exe or .com files) on the Windows
platform for which there is an exact match in the
An "exact match" is a match of both file name and file size, or GUID.
- Exact match applications are automatically identified and converted to license units on a scheduled basis by default, so this list should normally be empty. If you do see applications in this list, you can convert them to license units by right-clicking them and selecting Automatically Configure.
- Windows close
match: Files recognized by the
as closely matching main executables for Windows applications. A close match
application may have the same file name as a known application, but the file
size may be slightly different.
- By default, close match applications are converted to license units when exact match applications are converted to license units. (See the General tab in the Options dialog box.) If there are applications remaining in this list, you can convert them into license units by selecting them, right-clicking on your selection, then selecting Automatically Configure. By default, close match applications are also configured on a scheduled basis.
configure: Applications that you don't want to configure into
- Move applications you don't want to see in any of the above lists to this category.
When you open a folder in the Unconfigured Applications panel, the larger pane on the right lists all the applications that fall under the currently selected folder and the following information, if available. You can customize which of the following columns are visible by right-clicking a column header.
