Filter discovered applications

Mar. 28, 2016

Quick filters make it easy to quickly restrict the list of discovered applications, such as according to their rationalization status or the number or percentage of machines on which they are installed. The Filter toolbar in the Discover Applications screen provides several filters.

You can apply multiple quick filters. For example, you can use the Review quick filter to show discovered applications that are marked for review, the Migrate and Retire quick filters to hide discovered applications marked for migration and retirement, respectively, and a Usage quick filter to show only discovered applications that have been used in the past month. Click Clear Filters on the right side of the toolbar to clear all quick filters.

You can also create filters based on the data in any column, as described for the Application List in Filter applications. The Clear Filters button does not clear customer filters. However, you can clear them individually.

The filters in the first set of quick filters have a simple on and off state, which are indicated by the and icons, respectively. These quick filters are as follows:

  • Duplicates

    Show only discovered applications that have duplicates. This also sorts the applications so that they appear in name, manufacturer, and version order. This means that the duplicate applications appear next to each other in the list. Applications are considered duplicates if their name and manufacturer are the same.

    Do not restrict the list to discovered applications that have duplicates. This means that the list includes discovered applications for which there are no duplicates.

  • Review

    Show discovered applications that are marked for review.

    Hide discovered applications that are marked for review.

  • Migrate

    Show discovered applications that are marked for migration.

    Hide discovered applications that are marked for migration.

  • Retire

    Show discovered applications that are marked for retirement.

    Hide discovered applications that are marked for retirement.

The second set of quick filters enables you to quickly filter the list of discovered applications based on the percentage of machines they are installed on, the percentage of active machines and users that actually use the applications, and how frequently they are used:

  • Installed machines – Restrict the discovered applications according to the percentage of machines that they are installed on. For example, the Most option shows applications that are installed on 76-100% of all of the machines that have been identified by SysTrack. The filter drop-down displays the number of applications (apps) that meet each criteria (taking into account any other filters that have been applied).
  • Active machines – This is similar to the Installed Machines quick filter, except that it restricts the discovered applications according to whether they have actually been used. In this context an active machine is a machine on which the application has actually been used in the period of time that the SysTrack database covers.
  • Active users – Restrict the discovered applications according to the percentage of users who have actually used them. For example, the Many option shows discovered applications that have been used by 26-75% of users. The filter drop-down list displays the number of discovered applications (apps) that meet each criteria after any other active filters have been applied.
  • Usage – Restrict the discovered applications according to when they were last used. As with the other quick filters in this group, the drop-down list displays the number of discovered applications (apps) that meet each criteria after any other active filters have been applied.
