Geographical location info for a device connected to a cloud license server

Jump to solution

Hello,

Can you kindly help me out with this please?

Is there a way to find any geographical location information, e.g. IP or similar information, of any device which is served by a cloud license server?

Thanks.

Hello @ageorge , 

Depending on what you are trying to do with the geographical data, you do have the ability to capture geographical information at the client side and send it to FNO via Vendor Dictionary of the Capability Request. 

Whether the above option is appropriate would depend on your specific use case and so you would have to provide us with some further detail on what you're trying to eventually achieve with the geographical data.

Kind regards,

Hi George,

We may be able to provide IP details from which the request is originating against a CLS instance ID (for given time range), but not exactly served device specific. This will contain all the IPs which is requesting for license from CLS. 

From FNO UI side it is not possible to get this IP details. To get such IP details which I mentioned above, a support ticket needs to be submitted. Hope this helps.

Thanks @dekumar and @ekose1 .

Regarding the reason why we want this info, its so we can randomly check compliance with commercial terms (not enforce compliance).

So if we capture geographical information at the client side and send it to FNO via Vendor Dictionary of the Capability Request, where/how will this information be visible in FNO?

Thanks.

Hello @ageorge

This information is available within the "View" tab of the Device page within the Producer Portal Web UI. 

The information is also available via Reporter (via the FlexNet Embedded Addon-Mapping universe).
