List of SNAP applications installed on Linux
we are in process of testing a POC for using KACE as centralized management tool for Linux OS in our company. One of the current issues is disk encryption and backup solutions, but on the more minor side that I believe I could solve faster is how to get a list of programs installed via SNAP on Linux? Is there some way to get this? So I can know are versions up to date for security.
since snaps are just extracted files they do not report themselves to any packaging system.
So the only way is to collect the list via a custom Inventory Rule like ShellCommandTextReturn(/usr/sbin/snap list)

The installs, configs etc can be done using the scripting engine, depending on what you want to do.
For instance running snap refresh on a regular basis together with the other update scripts.
