About this task

If the information automatically added to the Software model field is incorrect, you can change to an existing model or create a new one.

None of the software discovery model records are approved when they are created. You must approve them manually after you have reviewed them for accuracy or normalized them. If the automatically generated software model is correct, approve the model.


  1. Navigate to Software Asset > Reconciliation > Discovery models.
