Manufacturer flag on core_company records inserted by discovery


Description

When does discovery mark "Manufacturer" flag as true on core_company records

Resolution

There are multiple ways on how discovery populates core_company records. Discovery populates the manufacturer field as true for company records that are created from these two ways:

1. Help the help desk scans

2. Installed software discovery by the installed software probes.

For any other probes that bring back the make and model information, discovery does not set the manufacturer flag to true by default. The default value for the field  which is false, will be populated for all such records
