Linux inventory: Ability to have application in inventory which is installed using script not by RPM Package

Currently, BCM only supports RPM or DEB package for collecting the Linux application software inventory.


Actual behavior:


  • When we installed any application using scripts like Oracle Database or Oracle Weblogic which uses a script to get installed on Linux machine then that case, RPM package will not have any update about that application. Similarly, our BCM also not going to add that application in inventories.


Reason for this BCM using RPM package or DEB package to identify the applications.


So, it would be great to have an alternative to approach to detect the applications like scanning the directories or using any filters to gather some specific application in software inventory.
