Create a Windows Intune Detected Software Report

Updated: December 17, 2012

Applies To: Windows Intune

In the Windows Intune administrator console, you can create a report that lists the software that Windows Intune detects on managed devices. This report is called the Detected Software Report, and it is available in the Reports workspace. After you create the report, you can print and export the report. For more information about how to perform those and other actions, see Working with Windows Intune Reports.

The Detected Software Report displays the following information about software titles:

  • Name – The name of the installed software package.

  • Publisher – The publisher of the installed software package.

  • Category – The category of the installed software package.

  • Installation count – The number of devices in your organization on which the software package is installed.

To ensure that you can view reports in the Windows Intune administrator console, if you are viewing the Windows Intune administrator console by using a web browser that has a pop-up blocker enabled, you must configure the pop-up blocker to allow pop-up windows from Windows Intune. If you do not do this, you might be unable to view reports.

To get the latest data, you can run an inventory refresh on a computer or computer group. For more information, see Refreshing Inventory in Windows Intune.

To create a Detected Software Report

  1. Open the Windows Intune administrator console.

  2. In the workspace shortcuts pane, click the Reports icon.

  3. In the navigation pane, click Detected Software Reports.

  4. Customize the report results in the following ways:

    • In Select device groups, click Edit. On the Select device groups for this report page, select the device groups to include in the report, and click OK.

      Only computers appear in the report.

      When you retire computers or change their group memberships in Windows Intune, it can take several minutes for these changes to be reflected in the Detected Software Report. For the most accurate software inventory data, wait a few minutes after retiring computers or changing their group memberships before you run a Detected Software Report that includes those computers.

    • In Select publishers, click Edit. On the Select publishers for this Software report page, select All publishers, or select Include only the following: and select the publishers of detected software to include in the report, then click OK.

    • In Select categories, click Edit. On the Select categories for this Software report page, select All categories, or select Include only the following: and select the software categories to include in the report, and click OK. Available categories are:

      • Other Apps

      • Books & Reference

      • Business

      • Collaboration & Social

      • Computer Management

      • Data Management

      • Development & Design

      • Photo, Audio & Video

      • Productivity

    The software categories for this report are not associated with the software categories that are used in software licensing agreements.

  5. Click View Report. A Detected Software Report page opens in a new window that displays the detected software inventory of managed devices that satisfy the criteria that you selected.

    The report can be sorted by any of the columns, such as Name, Publisher or Category by clicking the applicable column heading. You can expand the updates in the list to show more detail by clicking the directional arrow next to the list item.

    When you expand a software title, you can view the following information about managed devices that are running the selected title:

    • The names of all managed devices that are running the selected software title.

    • The operating system that each managed device is running.

    • The version of the selected software that is running on each computer.

    • Whether the instance of the selected software is virtual or real. Icons displayed next to each device also show whether the computer is virtual or physical.

    • The last time that the device reported software inventory to Windows Intune.
