Our company has a list of software which employees can install without previous authorization (Allowed Software)
I was asked to create a report listing all the not allowed software installed in the company computers.
Let's say our computer names are in the format COMPUTERNAME0001 and the allowed software list has 3 entries (Skype for Business, Beyond Compare, Notepad++)
I have the following query :
SYS.Netbios_Name0 as "Computer Name",
AR.Publisher0 as 'Vendor',
AR.DisplayName0 AS 'Software name',
AR.Version0 as 'Software Version'
v_R_System SYS ON AR.ResourceID=SYS.ResourceID
v_FullCollectionMembership fcm on sys.ResourceID=fcm.ResourceID
sys.Name0 LIKE 'COMPUTERNAME%'
DisplayName0 NOT LIKE 'Beyond Compare'
DisplayName0 NOT LIKE '%Notepad++%'
DisplayName0 NOT LIKE '%Skype for Business%'
DisplayName0 NOT LIKE ''
SYS.Netbios_Name0, AR.DisplayName0, AR.Publisher0, AR.Version0
That works, I get a report with the info I need.
Now they asked me if instead of having to edit the query every time we add or remove a software from the list, I can configure it, so the query reads a .txt file containing
the list of allowed software.
And I have no idea how to do it.
Is it possible?
