I had a request come in today to provide a list of all machines running a specific piece of software along with the associated version. I already had a tag to identify the machines running the software so that part was easy. The issue I ran into was AssetView was easily able to tell me how many machines were running a specific version using the "Group by Software" function, but there was no way to export the machine names along with the software version. In this case there were 15 different versions deployed so what I ended up doing was running a query for each version to get the associated machine names, export to CSV, and combine the data. Painful.
Does anyone else have a better way to do this? Ideally I would love it if there was a way to export the "group by software" view to include the specific machine names for each version. I'm thinking something along the lines of a checkbox to include the machine details when you click the download button.
