How do I create a report with Custom Inventory Rule included?

10/07/2015 1582 views

I am trying to create a report for a Custom Inventory Rule to check if Machines have their firewalls turned on. I have created the Custom Inventory Rule. When Machines check in, they should be checking for firewall status. I am not sure how to run a report with this custom inventory field?

 

The rule I created is:

RegistryValueEquals(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\StandardProfile,EnableFirewall,1)

 

When I look under the report I created I do not see this custom inventory field which I called Firewall Enabled.

  • if you open that cir does it show it is applied to any machines?
  • When I go to Inventory > software>

    I find my rule that I created and it says Devices 72

    When i click on the rule> Total Deployed:72
    • click on one of the devices to get it's details and expand "custom inventory fields" under software.
      Do you see your CIR listed here?
  • No
    • it is because it does not equal one since the key is a dword

you can do this

RegistryValueReturn(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\StandardProfile,EnableFirewall,number) 

and create a report on the CIR with the following filters:

CIR is not null

CIR contains 1

  • That fixed it. I guess I should have realized that it was a string and not a value. Thanks again.
