FlexNet Manager Suite release 2019 R2 introduces several new and updated features, including new views to help when you want to understand why an installed application is consuming from this license rather than that license. The Application Licenses Assessed page shows, from the latest license reconciliation, all the licenses that were assessed for authorizing a particular software installation, and gives reasons why each one was either rejected or accepted (or, perhaps, not assessed because another license had already won the prize).

Also included are:

New connection methods for the AWS EC2 connector provide increased security
Raw file path exposed for each piece of file evidence
Support for inventory of Linux KVM virtualization
FlexNet inventory agent support for 64-bit only versions of macOS.

For further information about the changes in this release, and to find a history of updates to the FlexNet Manager Suite cloud edition, please refer to the supporting documentation from Flexera HelpNet including:

@dparab27 if you've been upgraded (you can look under your license to validate version is now R2), just go up to the menu > Data Input > Manage Inventory Agent > Under Inventory agent for download you can select the latest versions for the updated binaries.

@dparab27  If it is cloud then you have to get it from the Webui.

Under Discovery & Inventory/Settings/ Scroll down to Inventory agent for download.
