Is there CIM for Software?  I have different sources.  ePO, ACAS, Windows add-on, and NIX add-on.  Would like to using data model from CIM if possible?

Here are the CIM I've already look at:  https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/CIM/4.18.0/User/Endpoint

Endpoint

Inventory 

Application State

I've also searched Splunk Answers but, no quick results.

Hi! If you mean "software" as a field name that might be associated with a data model, then no, that is not currently a field name associated with a data model:

Should the data model for endpoint be extended or should we create a new data model for software inventory.   

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/CIM/4.20.1/User/Endpoint

We're thinking of adding a section:  Endpoint - Software

Dataset nameField nameData typeDescriptionAbbreviated list of example values
SoftwareSoftware_NameStringName of the software 
SoftwareSoftware_VersionStringVersion of the software 
SoftwareSoftware_AliasStringSoftware Normalization Name  
SoftwareStatusbooleanTracking that software was remove or installed 

 

We were able to build a common information model for RHEL & windows using the following fields for software_name, software_version,  dest.  We'd extended the to baseline inventory lookup to add desc, and ip.

Are we thinking correctly?  We're able to do software baseline, normalization, and detect changes using the other data model this way right?
