Investigation with packages

Starting from Nexthink V6.3, those investigations retrieving packages or including a condition on packages have been simplified. The results take into account only those packages that are effectively installed, discarding uninstalled packages.

Nevertheless, it is still possible to find installations or uninstallations of packages by directly querying the installation events.

The following tables summarize the typical uses of investigations related to packages. Download all the investigations and import them into the Finder to try them out.
