License Compliance - Same license to multiple versions of software
04/30/2015 3745 views
So we have 40 Adobe Pro licenses that can work on 10, 11 and the new DC. But when I add the software to be counted against that license. It treats it as we have 40 licenses for each version instead of 40 total. Is this a Kace issue that cannot be fixed and I need to manually create 3 licenses in Kace and move the numbers back and forth accordingly when a user needs a different version of Adobe Pro? Or Can I/Kace handle this differently?

1. In the Software Inventory create a smart label that includes all versions of Adobe Acrobat Pro.
2. In the Assets module create a Software asset that uses the label you created in step 1.
3. In the Assets module set the License to use the Software title you created in step 3.
The License will now cover all software versions that are included in the smart label you initially created. As new sub-versions are detected in KACE they should automatically be added to the label as long as they match the criteria.
