About the unique identifier for software resources
The software resource's unique identifier provides consistency in the way that Notification Server identifies specific software. Software delivery, discovery, and usage actions are based on the software identifier. As a result, you are assured that their data is associated with the correct software resources.
Typically, the main components of the unique identifier are the software resource's company (vendor) name, software name, and version. The unique identifier can also contain additional information. For example, if the software is language-specific, the language code is included. If the software is targeted for a specific architecture such as x86, the architecture type is included.
