How to take care of additional consumption?

I tested a Business Import to allocate a device to a device license with "NumberAllocated" = 10.
Then after a Reconcile the device consumes 10 entitlements.
Things to consider:
- This approach might not work with all license types.
- This might also not work in all FNMS releases, I tested on 2017 R3.
- It is by no means supported by Flexera.
- It is not available via WebUI, you'll need the Business Import to set the values.
An option (if relevant for your metric requirements) could be to use an IBM Authorized User license type. The license type counts user installations like a 'User' license, but the IBM Authorized User license type also offers the option to add additional bulk (normal) user counts on the Consumption tab of the license.
If automatic inventory can't bring calculate the additional consumption for you , then a manual process is needed. Most common solution is use business adapter to assign allocation (lic -> device or lic -> User) based on your report list (raw data list of consumption like document)
