License Compliance service

The License Compliance service monitors the number of software licenses allowed for a customer, based on the thresholds specified for individual applications. For example, if a customer has a total of 100 licenses for an application and 88 instances of the application are discovered on their network, this service reports that 88% of the available licenses are in use. 

This service cannot use Self Healing.

To configure license monitoring for a customer, refer to Setting the License Compliance Service Details.

This service is available only for Windows devices that have been discovered by a Windows agent or a Windows probe. For more information, see Discovery Jobs.
