The Installations page is the main Application Migration page where you can view which applications are installed in your environment, how frequently they're used, and if rules to migrate them have been defined. On this list you can also create and modify migration rules and exclude applications that you're not interested in.

Using the Installations page

You use the Installations page to view the applications that are installed in your estate and to create migration rules for them. Applications are listed by Vendor, Title and Edition, ordered by installation count in descending order so the most commonly installed applications are at the top of the page. Typically, you'll work your way down the list of applications, either adding a migration rule to define how that application should be migrated or excluding the application if you're not concerned about migrating it. Alternatively you can use the column filters to search for specific applications that you want to migrate and add the rules from the filtered list.

The tables and screenshots below describe the elements of the Installations page and their associated actions. From the Installations page you can create a migration rule for all versions of the selected application, or you can drill down by clicking the application title to see all versions of the application and create more granular rules for specific versions. Refer to Managing migration rules for more information on creating and managing migration rules.  


The following items are displayed on the Installations page:

OptionDescription
Management Group

By default, the Installations page shows the global view of software installations across your entire estate. If you've defined one or more Management Groups, selecting a Management Group from the drop-down displayed in the top-right of the page will filter the view to show software installed on devices in that Management Group.

If you add migration rules from the Installations page with a specific Management Group selected, the rule will only apply to installations in that Management Group and will not affect installations outside that Management Group.

Management groups are containers used to group devices and the software installed on those devices. Management groups are defined using configurable rules that look at various properties of the devices and their installed software, these are then evaluated to determine the group membership. This means that Management group membership adapts to changes to the devices and software in your environment.

Title controls

The title area includes information on your current rules, exclusions and non-normalised products. It also includes buttons to export and import rules to and from a spreadsheet.

ControlDescription
Rules 

Displays the number of existing rules associated with a particular Management Group. Follow the link to Add, Edit or Delete existing rules.

For more details, please refer to:

Exclusions

Displays the items that have been excluded. Exclusions are not associated with any Management Group. Follow the link to view the exclusions.

Please refer to Managing product exclusions for more details.

Non-NormalizedDisplays the number items that have not yet been normalized against the Catalog. Follow the link to resolve the unmatched items.
ExportCreates and downloads a spreadsheet in .xlsm format that has all your installed applications to enable you to create new rules to associate with them without having to be online.
ImportWhen you have created the new rules for your applications, import the file, which may be in .xlsx or .xlsm format, so that Application Migration can implement the new rules.
Add RuleAllows you to add a new migration rule for the selected application.
Manage RulesAllows you to manage existing migration rules for the selected application.


ExcludeAllows you to exclude the selected application if you're not interested in it for application migration purposes. For example runtime libraries, drivers and applications included in your core OS build, or components that are installed by another application that will be migrated.


Installations page

The details table (below the navigation elements) lists applications installed in your estate by Vendor, Title and Edition. All versions of a given Vendor, Title and Edition are consolidated into a single row, which can be expanded to view version-specific data by clicking the Title.

By default the list is ordered in descending order by the installation count, so the most prolific applications are displayed at the top. Each application has indicators showing how frequently the application is used and if there are any migration rules to cover the application. This allows you to focus on the most commonly installed and most frequently used applications for which migration rules do not yet exist. The table below describes each of the columns.

Colum nameDescription
Title Title of the product.
Vendor Vendor of the product.
Edition Edition of the product.
Usage A summary of usage for that product. Hover your mouse over the bar to see the count of installations in each usage state.
Version CoverageA summary of installations of that product that are covered by one or more migration rules. Hover your mouse over the bar to see the count of covered installations, those with no rule and those with conflicting rules. If the bar is completely grey there are no migration rules defined for that application.
Rule TypesA summary of types of migration rules defined for that product. Hover your mouse over the bar to see the count of each type. If the bar is completely grey there are no migration rules defined for that application.
Install CountThe total number of installations for that product across your estate.

Viewing Installation details

You can click on a specific title to see clearer representations of UsageVersion CoverageRule Types and granular details for each version of the application. You can also create a version-specific migration rule from this view. In our example we've chosen Visio Professional.

The table below describes the three charts in the top panel. 

PanelDescription
Usage

Hover your mouse over the column to see the number of Used, Rarely, Unused and Unreported installations.

CoverageHover your mouse over the column to see the number of installations that are Covered by a rule, have No Rule coverage, or have a rule Conflict.
RulesHover your mouse over the column to see the number of installations that Application Migration will Retain, Replace or Upgrade, or installations for which there is a rule Conflict or No Rule.

The detail table below the charts shows the following information for each version:

Column nameDescription
Version 

Version of the product.

InstallsThe number of installations of that version out of the total of all installed versions, for example 304/3017.
UsageA summary of usage for that version. Hover your mouse over the bar to see the count of installations in each usage state.
TargetIndicates the usage states that apply to that version as defined in the rule in the same row. If there are different rules for different usage states of the same version, these would be shown as separate rows, each indicating the usage states defined in the rule in the same row.
RuleIndicates the type of migration rule that applies to that version. Clicking on the link in this column reveals the Management Groups that include installations of the version.
CoverageIndicates how many installations of that version are covered by the rule indicated in the Rule column.
Target Vendor

Indicates the vendor of the application that this version will be migrated to by the rule indicated in the same row.

Target Title

Indicates the title of the application that this version will be migrated to by the rule indicated in the same row.

Target VersionIndicates the version of the application that this version will be migrated to by the rule indicated in the same row.
Target EditionIndicates the edition of the application that this version will be migrated to by the rule indicated in the same row.
