You can manage your licenses in the Licenses application under the License Inventory navigation item. Licenses can be imported to the system or created manually by using the Add License action.
If you create a license manually, it is important to select the appropriate type of license. Validation of a license, its compliance status, and mandatory attributes will differ based on the license type.
Layout of a License Dialog
Before filling out a license dialog, have a look at the layout of information in the dialog.
Most of the essential information about a license is located on the General page. The Catalog Item section contains data about the purchase of a license. Details about software product, license model, usage rights, etc. should be entered in the Usage Rights section. Data in the Ownership and License Pool sections determines to which organizational divisions a license can be assigned. If the license type entails software product maintenance, relevant information should be specified in the Maintenance section.
This dialog page helps you manage the assignment of a license to certain organizational divisions and consumers. Current License Pool and Schedule of Future License Pool can be edited via the Set License Pool action. In the System Restrictions grid, you can add all devices for which this license can be exclusively used. In the Reservations grid, you can specify consumers whose license requirements will have privilege over others.
All details pertaining to the purchase and depreciation of a license are displayed in this page.
