How to set consumption for named user licenses in the tool?

Good morning Vikas,

I don't believe automatic allocation of Users is possible through the App Portal integration.
I was referring to our App Portal > FNMS integration documentation here, https://docs.flexera.com/epi/ 

Automatically allocating Users to a License would be possible through a Business Adapter for example, or it's part of the data gathered by the Microsoft 365 connector to ensure your M365 licenses are allocated to the relevant user accounts.

Kind regards and thanks,

Jack

Good morning Vikas, I hope you're well?

For consumption of particular License Types, I normally recommend looking at the Online Help's glossary page:
https://docs.flexera.com/FlexNetManagerSuite2020R2/EN/WebHelp/index.html#glossaries/licType_NamedUse...

For consumption of a Named User License, the requirements are the sum of all of the following:

  • The number of unique owners of computers that have installations of one or more of the applications linked to the license AND the license is allocated to the user
  • The number of users who have used one or more of the applications on a computer, where that user is not the owner of the computer AND the license is allocated to the user. (Only applies if usage data is collected and imported.)

I'd ensure that any users you anticipate consuming this License are allocated to the License - I hope that helps, don't hesitate to let me know if not.

Kind regards and thanks,

Jack

Thank you Jack, I am doing well, hope the same for you.

So, we need to manually allocate the users in the license consumption to see the actual license usage. Is it possible to automate the whole process, I mean we use AppPortal, so is it possible to allocate the licenses to the users as soon as they are entered in the AppPortal/AppBroaker?
