IBM Cloud Pak - consumption exemption

How consumption exemption is managed in IBM Cloud Pak?
it seems that if on a specific server both "production" and "non-production" release of a product (included in Cloud Pak) are installed, you cannot exclude the consumption just for only one of them, e.g. only the non-prod (introducing as exemption reason "assigned production license" for example)

So if our goal is not "double counting license consumption", we will obtain "under counting".

Which is the possible workaround?

Are you able to see the production and non-production releases recognised as separate installs on the computer? If so and you are on FNMS 2020 R2, it is only possible to exempt an entire device from a licence. You would need to create a separate licence for the non-production products to manage the consumption properly. If you are on FNMS 2021 R1 or Cloud, it is possible to exempt a device from a specific product using the exemption button on the consumption grid.
