To effectively manage all of your software in Oomnitza, you'll need to identify and add (or import) the desktop applications which are used throughout your organization.
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 by navigating to Software>Desktop.
- Click the Add button in the upper right.
- Fill out the required details in the Add New Software window.
- Once all fields are filled, click Save.
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.
Using an extended integration to add software
You'll need to ensure that your Oomnitza account is configured and receiving data from a supported integration. For further information refer to Working with extended integrations.
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.
When you add contracts, the total budgeted costs are calculated and shown on the Information tab and on the side pane of the Information tab.
To learn how to set up contracts, see Adding and managing contracts for desktop software.
