The top of the Detection tab displays the table by detecting its hardware and software of the computer that is currently selected in the tree. If an organizational folder is selected in the tree, the table shows the detections of all computers in that folder. If you select a detection in the top table, its log is displayed at the bottom of the tab.

Local menu options on the Detection tab:

  • Details - View the details of the selected detection. You can also specify whether to display hardware or software details.
  • Compare to Asset Registry - Compare the selected detection with a record in Installation logging (software) and tree entries (hardware) respectively.
    If an error occurred during the last detection, the window will open Identifiable Components window, which allows you to configure what the computer should be detected by (globally, detection components can be configured in ALVAO WebApp - Administration).
  • Find a matching computer
  • Compare detections - display the difference between two selected detections.
  • Load from file - retrieve a detection stored on disk.
  • Save to file - save the selected detection as a file to disk.
