Hello @sissonr, reading subscriptions in the Adobe Portal or AD groups and creating allocations works on both on Prem and SaaS.

The Optimization report, that is running advanced SQL queries to catch the data is on Prem only. The report is planned to be implemented on the Cloud Instance in Q1 2022.

Best regards,
