Post subject:  Software_Keys Management?


Is there any way to edit some Informationen to the Software Keys in OpenAudit?
It shows me how many installations with this Keys are used.
Now I want to Edit some Information e.g. how many lincenses I really have to this Key.

e.g. a Report-Table like this


I would realy love this feature :P

Software Licensing in Open-AudIT relates to what software is installed, not what licenses are gathered.
In a perfect world, your license count would match the software install counts, but we can't get every single license key.
I would suggest you use the Software Licensing Report (function) and use the License Keys as something to verify against (manually).

Thats what I want to do.
I want to manually edit information to a Software Key for Verification.


System Count: 56
Aviable Licenses: 100 *manually Added*
Key NAME: Microsoft Office Standard 2007

This should be Possible if you add a coloumn in the sys_sw_software_key - Table e.g. called "Key_aviable".

Then you could get this Value out of a Report and it would be very nice if you could edit this value in the edit function of OA:)

I made somethink like I discriped on my own.

I did this:

Create the Coloumn:

alter table sys_sw_software_key ADD license_max varchar(50);

Edit your Values for the key:

Update sys_sw_software_key set license_max = 15 where key_text = 'xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx';

Edit your Report:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
      <report_name>Software Keys_new</report_name>
      <report_sql><![CDATA[SELECT COUNT(key_text) as count, key_name, key_text, license_max, key_id FROM system LEFT JOIN oa_group_sys ON system.system_id = oa_group_sys.system_id LEFT JOIN sys_sw_software_key ON (sys_sw_software_key.system_id = system.system_id and sys_sw_software_key.timestamp = system.timestamp) WHERE oa_group_sys.group_id = @group GROUP BY key_text ORDER BY key_name]]></report_sql>
         <column_name>System Count</column_name>
         <column_name>License Max</column_name>
         <column_name>Key Name</column_name>
         <column_name>Key Text</column_name>

The problem is that the key name (in sys_sw_software_key) and the software name (in sys_sw_software) do not necessarily match up.
And they never match if you use a language in Windows other than English.
If the key name did actually match what is retrieved from the registry and WMI for installed programs we could do it. It doesn't.
