Software Licensing - multiple licenses, same product
03/19/2018 848 views
If I have multiple licenses that were bought at different times (with different license keys and purchase info), should they be entered under the same "License" asset? Or two separate licenses? Which way do you do it?
It seems that the License Compliance screen supports multiple license entries and calculates the total licenses (15), but other reports (Software_Catalog_-_License_Reconciliation_Report) sees it as two different licenses .
Kace software licensing has changed a lot over the years, so I am unsure what the best practice is for these things now.

You can do either, so adding in license information into your license asset works ok, but my preference, I can't claim it as Best practice , would be to create a fresh license Asset for every purchase and include the PO information and perhaps a date in the Licenses Asset Title i.e. Adobe Acrobat X full version - PO122345 - Dec 18.
It makes sense to do it this way as each asset can link back to the PO and provide a full audit track
