Hi Juanid,

as you did ask how to add a custom currency in FNMS if it is not listed in default currency list: If you work in an on-prem FNMS environment and have access to the database, you can add the additional currency as a new row to the [FNMCompliance].[Currency] table.

Make sure not to mess with the existing [North Korean Won] currency though.

Personally, I have always been amazed that North Korea has been selected for the 43 currencies supported by FNMS - of the more than 250 currencies that exist world wide according to Wikipedia.

Kim Jong-un must have a special interest in software licensing 😁.

A tip from the Online help "If your desired currency is not available in the pull-down list of options, please contact your Flexera Support engineer to request that it be added to the list."

To clarify the two earlier responses here, as they achieve slightly different things:

@tschaus's response covers what you can do if you need to add a currency that doesn't appear in the dropdown list shown when you click the "Add a currency" button shown in @mfranz's screenshot.

(Anything expressed here is my own view and not necessarily that of my employer, Flexera. If my reply helped, give me a kudos. If it solves a question you have raised, please click "ACCEPT AS SOLUTION".)
