  • This works perfectly, however, I am not able to pull a report of the custom inventory rule that it creates. It does not show up as an option in the Report Wizard.

This is 99% of what I want, but missing one very important detail: which interface is the monitor using? HDMI, DP, DVI, VGA? Is there any method to retrieve that information. I know of two other products older than KACE that can do this by default and much more. Not sure why KACE overlooked this. "Generic PnP Monitor" is totally useless information.
