The Set Baseline action is a tool you can use to keep track of compliance status of software products. A baseline is a check mark with which you verify whether the current state of the key data is correct. By running this action for a software product, you document that its compliance status is verified at a specific point in time. As a result, you will be able to see the difference between current values and the last baseline. We recommend that you frequently set baselines for software products whose license compliance is actively managed.
Setting a baseline
This action is available for all software products and can be run for multiple records. The result of setting a baseline is displayed on the General page and on a preview of a software product. It is also saved as a journal entry.
