Setting-Up Desktop Software

Desktop Software can be configured in two ways. Software can be added manually, or imported directly from machines using a connector and a supported hardware management tool including Jamf, Jasper, Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Intune, Mobile Iron. 

Adding Software Manually

Desktop Software can be added manually through the Desktop Module.

  1. Click the 'Add' button in the upper right of the Desktop Software Module.
  2. Fill out the required details in the Add Software window.
  3. Once all fields are filled, click Save in the lower right.

Once you've clicked Save, the software will be available in the block or list view, and you can begin associating licenses and specific users.

Adding Software Through a Connector

To configuration, you'll need to ensure that your Oomnitza account is configured and receiving data from a supported hardware management tool.

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab of the Settings page in Oomnitza.
  2. Under the 'Device Integrations' section, select the tool that you wish to integrate with.

  3. Integration INFO: This page provides an overview of the module's functionality. Under the description will also find a link to download the Connector files and a link to the documentation revealing more details on the Connector functionality. For more on the Oomnitza connector, please see our article on Integrations and the Oomnitza Connector.

  4. Integration SYNC SESSIONS: A list of connection sessions between Oomnitza and the selected integrator. Here you can check and download logs on each session.
  5. Integration MAPPINGS: is a screen where you can tie Oomnitza desktop software fields to fields that can be retrieved from your hardware management tool logs. Thereby you can manage Oomnitza adding/updating rules for desktop software retrieved from a Connector.

After the integrations are set, the aforementioned 'Connector' should be installed. You can learn more about the installation and usage in this GitHub article.

Next Steps

Now that the integration is set up, you can begin utilizing Oomnitza's Desktop module. However, to best take advantage of the module, we recommended setting up contracts first. This will let you begin associating Desktop applications assets with their costs and give you deeper insights into your software.

To learn how to set up contracts, check out our article on Creating and Managing Contracts.
