I’m not able to find SCM App. Autoupdate is enabled and other Versions look good. Restarting BESServer incl. WebUI didn’t change anything:

Hello Matthias, in order to have the SCM application you need to have:

  • a valid BigFix Compliance license
  • WebReports component up and running

If this is met and you still have issues, I suggest that you open a support ticket
