Video tutorials for BigFix Inventory (previously Software Use Analysis) are available on the License Management channel on YouTube. They provide step-by-step instructions that complement the product documentation.

 

Note: The License Management channel stores videos for BigFix Inventory (previously Software Use Analysis), Subcapacity Reporting (SR) and License Metric Tool (LMT). The three applications share the code base which means that they have a set of common features. Videos that were prepared for SR and LMT describe procedures which can also be applied to BigFix Inventory. If any adjustments are required in such videos, they are described on this page.
