Creating a software license item

Asset Management Suite

Software license items record the details that are associated with contracts for software licenses.

When you create a software license item, you specify its attributes and associate it with other configuration items in your system. The attribute information includes the software that is associated with the license. It also includes the start date and the end date of the license, and the clients that are authorized to use the software.

You can associate a software license item with the following other configuration items in the system:

Software purchase item

You associate each software license with a software purchase.

Software product item

You associate each software license with a single software product.

Other software license items

You can associate a software license item with other software license items that represent upgraded or previous versions of the same software program. For example, you can associate a software license item for Norton Ghost 12 with software license items for Norton Ghost 11 and Norton Ghost 13.

By specifying these associations, you can track and manage your software licenses throughout their lifecycle.

This task is a step in the process for managing your software license compliance on the Asset Management Solution pages.
