IQL Attribute Filter including Inbound References


My situation is as follows:

1. I have the following object types: Operating System, PC Software, Software License

2. Both the OS and PC Software have an attribute linking to a Software License, i.e. the Software Licenses have inbound references from OS and/or PC Software


So that's the setup for the software and related licenses.


Then I have an object type 'Server' with the following attributes:

1. Software (of type 'PC Software')

2. Operating System (of type 'Operating System'

3. Licenses (of type 'Software License')


Now, my idea, because I had this behavior in other tools, is that I can select softwares and an operating system and then have the licenses being filtered to only 'valid' licenses that are linked to these softwares/operating systems. As far as I can see, this is possible using the inboundReferences (inR) function.

What I tested (IQL filter on the 'Licenses' attribute):

object having inR(objectType IN ("Operating System", "PC Software") )

--> This works, it only shows licenses that are actually linked to a software/OS

object having inR(Name LIKE "windows")

--> This also works, only licenses that have a software linked with "windows" in their name show up


However, what I just can't get to work is the following and I don't understand why it's not working (in this example, I just do it for Software):

object having inR(Key IN ${Software${0}})


object having inR(Name IN ${Software.Name${0}})


As far as I understand this should work? I'm using the following as a reference:
