UCMDB Tip: Support of Software ID Tags in UD
Recently we had a number of queries regarding whether UD supports Software ID Tags. Please see below some information regarding this:
- Software Identification Tag is an XML file that contains identification information about a software product. The tag is installed on a discovery node together with the software product, and it uniquely identifies the software installation.
- Software ID tags are supported in UD and the files must have the .swidtag file extension in order to be recognized by UD Inventory Discovery tools.
- The Software ID Tag data is collected by the UD scanner and can be found in the scan file under “hwOSData/hwOSSoftwareIdTags”.
- When tags are captured by Scanners during discovery, the data can be leveraged for improved Software Asset management and compliance. You can create installed package rules that can match the information found in the Software ID tags and recognise software applications.
If you find that this or any post resolves your issue, please be sure to mark it as an accepted solution.”

Re: UCMDB Tip: Support of Software ID Tags in UD
Is there any instruction / workflow available, how to teach the system, that the information of the swidtag file is found in the ucmdb ?
I missed that...
