The Software Users page has three tabs:

Unmatched Software

Software Users page: Unmatched Software tab

The Unmatched Software tab shows imported records where the product has not been recognized (where License Optimizer could not definitively match the record to a product in the License Optimizer Software Library). Software records must be linked to a product listed in the Software Library or they are not included in reconciliation. To match these records to an entry in the License Optimizer Software Library, use software teaching. For more information on software teaching, see Software Teaching.
