Duplicate Programs etc.
There are often duplicate entrys for one program version. this makes it hard to find out information. Maybe Deployments Tips should have a standardized name like <manufacturer> <program name> <version> <architecture>.
Also merging should be possible. So users can merge duplicated entrys or inform staff to merge this entrys.
Definitely. We have some clean up to do and are working to see if we can provide a simple way to crowd source so helpful members of the community like yourself might be able to participate. Please know that we are working to clean things up as an ongoing task right now. For a bit more on this and how it is intended to work, please see my blog post on the matter at http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/tagging-stuff-on-itninja
I would like to add my voice to this as currently things are a little bit messy and it does make some things hard to find so sometime needs to be taken to sift through the entries by hand and remove and merge a lot of them. There are a lot of entries like vendor vendor product version as well as alternative names for entries ie dot net vs .net
One thing that does not work is the drop down for the version numbers.
It looks as thought bad data may have been imported because the version drop downs do not match the actual product versions on the programs that I have looked up.
Maybe it would make more sense to have a drop down with each package name and version like it displayed in the list on appdeploy.
Right now I cannot even enter package data for products I know since the version list does even relate to the program.
Just look at .Net Framework 3.5 below. The only version in the drop down is 3? This does not make sense since the version is actually 3.5. What does version "3" even mean in this list?
Having version 3.5 SP1 would be more useful.
There are plenty more like my example above.
Maybe we can all work together to cleanup these entries. :-)
