Software Types

A Software Type tries to define the nature of existence of a Software Asset.

To view the Software Types page, navigate to Admin > Asset Management > Software Types.

Here, you can view the default software types as well as add the custom ones. By default, Motadata provides six Software Types out of the box. They are :

  • Unidentified: These software are the unidentified ones with unknown source.
  • Shareware: These software run on a free Trial.
  • Prohibited: These software are not allowed to be used.
  • Freeware: These software are free to use.
  • Managed: These software need managing with regards to License and Compliance.
  • Excluded: These software do not need any managing.
