License Management - Data Batch Processing (Engine Activation)

Introduction

After importing data from computer inventory,  Active Directory or other data sources (e.g. organizational master data) the Software Asset Management system needs to process this data updating license requirements and corresponding entitlements. 

This processing is performed by the activation "License Management - Data Batch Processing".  Normally it is scheduled to run overnight on a daily basis. 

Please ensure that the schedule corresponds with the schedules of data import jobs so that imports are made before this activation is run.
