UCMDB - Need to discover the Architecture attribute for install Software

Customers Scenario

We have a software installed on a unix for a specific architecture (i386, x64, etc...), or sometime 2 times the same software but for 2 different architectures. We need to have the value, and have it included in the reconcilation rule too, to be able to see the 2 versions of the install software on our servers. That way if we need to patch a x64 version of a particular software, we can see quickly what servers have that version for that architecture.

 

Workaround :

I currently did the change in the script myself for now in the HostApplicationByShell job, by changing the place where the rpm command is launch to get the unix packages installed. And did it in the windows discovery part but only for packages installed in the "windows store" starting with windows 8 and more.

 

Unacceptable :

It's not out of the box and i'll have to merge my fix when we will upgrade.

 

Required :

We need to have the architecture of our installed_software. I don't know what can be done for the InventoryDiscovery job, would be nice to have the value for as much software as possible, but currently my main goal is to get them with the HostApplicationByShell. Not sure how to get the value for Windows, i found a way to get the value for the "store package" but not all the other softwares, but for Unix/Linux, on some technology you can get the value easily directly with the rpm command. Would be nice to have that integrated in the product and on the reconciliation rule.
