Additional Information

On the Software Management Tab, there is a new custom report Type called"
Purchase/License/Inventory Infrastructure". There is also a new canned custom
report called "License Infrastructure".

The new category allows you to create a custom report that includes elements of
the license and all associated entities (purchase recs, catalog products,
discovered products, and discovered product demographics). The new category
does not allow summary items (such as license count). The idea is to provide a
way to view the data you have created to manage software compliance. This is
not for compliance reporting - it is for reviewing your infrastructure, and
verifying that your have organized things correctly.
