Software License

A Software License is an instrument that governs the use and redistribution of the software. It exists in the form of an agreement between the Software Vendor and the purchaser of the software. The license details contains information like expire date of the license, terms and condition of usage of total asset allocation, etc.

The robust Software License tool aims to streamline all the related processes. Using this tool, you can manage the license usage, track compliance violation, and receive the compliance related notifications.

License Types

ServiceOps supports eleven types of licenses out of the box. They are:

  2. Multiple Machine: This type of license grants multiple users to use the software package on multiple machines.
  3. Unlimited Machines: In this type of license, an organization buys the right to use the software for a specific period. When the period is over, the license is renewed. During the usage period, the license can be used by an unlimited number of machines.
  4. Node Locked: A Node Lock License is an encrypted key that is locked to a specific machine. Motadata automatically sets the Purchase Count for this type to one.
