The query capability of the Inventory service is a more than adequate
tool and can report on many scenarios. The challenge we have, is that I
need to set up a query, of machine types and software attributed to
departments that own them. The container design of our tree does not
represent departments per say so I need to bring in the Department
attribute from the User Object Class of the Last logged in User from a
workstation. Is this possible? In other words, how can you customise what
the inventory scan finds?

Hope this makes sense.
