Re: Best practices for managing license keys

@bibek9891 - Anyone who has access to "Read/View" a software license will be able to see the assigned License Keys.

Anyone who is not granted access to "Read/View" software licenses will not be able to see the License Keys.

FlexNet Manager does not have any low level security access rights to say "This person can view a license but cannot view the license keys".

Re: Best practices for managing license keys

hello, i would like to know if we can use FNMS to detect which key is being used on which end point machine. 

 

i can see that we can store keys in the entitlements, but can we see keys as per usage/consumption?

Re: Best practices for managing license keys

@nandinisapru - Since software publishers want to protect their property, License Key values are typically hidden and/or encrypted when a License Key is entered when installing software.  Therefore, it makes it almost impossible for a discovery tool to capture License Keys when performing an inventory scan on a computer to determine what license keys a specific end point is using.
