SCCM – Application installation summary report

This post will describe how to create an application installation summary report in SCCM. This is a great tool to have when you’re for example doing a health check of your applications and different versions of them. The report is built in Microsoft SQL Server Report Builder and you can see the final result on the pictures down below (press on the pictures to maximize).

I will now describe the different pieces of the report so you can make it fit in your environment:

Add the following datasets to the report, just make sure it is applicable to your environment:




Next step is to create the layout as shown in the picture below. When the layout is done put in the data from the datasets and the two expressions you can see under the picture.

In the second expression we join the computers within each software version result:

Last step is to save the report and try it out.

The report gives you a choice of choosing an application from a drop-down list (where all the applications in your environment will show up) or through a wildcard search. It will then show the selected application (and/or the specific version of your choice) in a list with parameters such as how many computers the application is installed on and the names of the computers.

List of all the applications in your environment.

Wildcard search that overrides the application list search.

A list with the computers that have the application installed.
