Dear Community members,
I am looking for best practices how to implement a naming convention standard for license name. Please share your experience. My goal is to standardize all license to be named in the same convention, to have consistency in FNMS. Is licensing convention names are governed by ISO standard ?
Publisher name Product Name - Type - Metric (Microsoft Visio Professional - Perpetual - Device)
Publisher Name Product Name - Version - Metric (Microsoft SQL Server - 2017 - Processor)

As far as I know, naming conventions are usually not defined by standards. All relevant elements should help you distinguish the licenses in FNMS from each other. A few ideas on your example:

We provide a recommended License Naming Convention as part of our License Creation and Optimization learning track in the Learning Center available from the link above. The basic form is:
<Publisher> <Product> <Edition> <Version> <Identifying details>

I am quite happy with the naming convention we’re using, therefore I’d like to share it:
[Publisher] [Product] [Version] [Edition] [Channel] [Type] [Metric] [OE License Owner] [OE License User]
These are quite a few attributes that Need time to be maintained but for us it works very well.
We use the same convention for POs, having more Types like Upgrades or Maintenance only.
Btw. thanks to Softline for helping in the creation of the convention.

I was wondering if you could give several examples from the naming conventions your have provided. Can you send several examples with any random Publisher / Product ?
