View software usage A usage record tracks the sum of usage on a monthly basis so that you can assess the software usage in your environment. You can import usage information using Microsoft SCCM integration, or using the Import Sets feature. Before you beginRole required: sam_user About this task Software usage is integrated with Microsoft SCCM 2012 v2 and 2016. Therefore, monthly usage details (last used, and total usage time) for products being monitored through Microsoft SCCM can be imported to the Software Usage list. Only usage data for products associated with a reclamation rule are imported. Note: A Microsoft SCCM Integration plugin must be installed to integrate Microsoft SCCM with Software Asset Management. A Microsoft SCCM Software Usage plugin must be installed to import software usage data from Microsoft SCCM to Software Asset Management. Microsoft SCCM Integration plugins: Integration - Microsoft SCCM 2012 v2 (com.snc.integration.sccm2012v2) plugin Integration - Microsoft SCCM 2016 (com.snc.integration.sccm2016) plugin Microsoft SCCM Software Usage plugins: Integration - Microsoft SCCM 2012 v2 Software Usage (com.snc.samp_usage_sccm) plugin Integration - Microsoft SCCM 2016 Software Usage (com.snc.samp.usage_sccm_2016) plugin Table 1.

If a user is not using a software installed, or very infrequently, that software can be a candidate for removal (uninstalled and allocated to a user who will use it more often). Note: Configuration item (CI), user, product, and publisher values are used to identify a matching software installation.Duplicate usage information cannot be created for the same CI, user, product, or publisher values in the same month and year. Procedure To view or create a Software Usage record, navigate to Software Asset > Discovery > Software Usage (see table for field descriptions). Table 3.
