Quicktips: License Usage by Group

Did you ever need to report license usage by group? Many license administrators want this capability for a variety of different reasons, among them chargeback – to help the organization charge the appropriate department or project according to usage, and allocation – to help them decide whether certain groups should be given preference over others.

Using the OpenLM Group Usage extension gives you that capability. You can synchronize with MS Active Directory entities such as organizational units, or build groups of your own.

In the OpenLM License Usage report, you can clearly view usage of different groups each represented by a different colored line on the chart, done by checking the checkbox labeled “Display separate chart lines for each group”

You can display any combination of groups by marking those required in the filter, as shown above.

See it demo’d in the next live OpenLM Extensions webinar.
