Recognition Options page

On this page, choose how to process auto-added recognition rules of the source software products selected on the previous page of the wizard.

NOTE: The Auto Added field appears marked for the software recognition rules added automatically when the Automation Server uploads the audit data. Auto-added software recognition rules differentiate only product major releases to keep Software Catalog uncluttered. When minor releases are important, you must change the auto-added Recognition Rule by replacing the asterisk (*) in the default value of the Product Version field with the minor release or update identifier that you want to distinguish. Once you have introduced any changes to an auto-created software recognition rule, the Auto Added field gets cleared.

You can choose one of the following options:

  • Add auto-added rules to the target product.

  • Replace auto-added rules with a rule with unspecified Product Version in condition.

  • Replace auto-added rules with a rule with this recognition condition.

If you choose the third option, fill out the New Version of Target Product and Recognition Condition boxes to specify your new recognition condition.

Click Next to proceed.
