Edition Table

The following table shows the column headings in the Edition table:

ColumnDescription
Edition

The edition portion of the vendor, title, version and edition attributes that are used to identify which software product the compliance status relates to.

Compliant

This column provides a count of the compliant installations for the product. When the number is not zero this is a link to a list of devices where the product is installed.

Non-Compliant

This column provides a count of the non-compliant installations for the product.

Exempted

This column provides a count of the exempted installations that are associated with an exemption management group. Please refer to Excluding devices from License Demand Calculation using Management Groups for more details.

Unknown

This column provides a count of the installations for the product where there are details that are unknown, thereby implying a risk for compliance calculation.

Device Summary Table

The following table shows the column headings in the Device Summary table:

ColumnDescription
Licensed Software

The title portion of the vendor, title, version and edition attributes that are used to identify software products. For example, Visio or Nomad.

You can sort on this column.

The version portion of the vendor, title, version and edition attributes that are used to identify software products. For example, 11.0.3216.5614 or 6.3.100.0.

Total License Available

Shows the total number of licenses available for this product from all the entitlements related to it.

Total Consumed

Shows the number of licenses consumed by installations from the total available for this product.

Effective License Position

The effective license position is a calculation of the entitlements for a particular software product against the installations for that product. It may be one of:

  • a negative number, in which case there are more installations for that software product than entitlements
  • zero where the numbers match exactly
  • a positive number, which indicates you have paid for more licenses than you are using.

Your ideal is to get the numbers positive but as close to zero as fits in with your current and predicted demand.
