The Software Licensing Agreements feature — which was formerly called My software licensing — provides an in-depth view into existing and recently expired licensing agreements across your entire organization. 
 

What’s new in the Software Licensing Agreements feature?


We’ve recently made design improvements that simplify the overall user experience to help improve contract management.
 
These updates include:
 
  • Visual enhancements to highlight existing features
  • Organizing licenses by vendor
  • Expired contract views
  • Expand all/collapse all contracts

What’s in the Software Licensing Agreements feature?


Depending on your organization’s contract types there are two permission views you can access within the Software Licensing Agreements feature — software licensing agreements and hosted licensing agreements. 
 

Software licensing agreements view


main software licensing view
 
The software licensing permission view lets you explore active licenses by country and manufacturer within your organization. Expired licenses are also available in the feature for up to 90 days. When viewing an expired license, you can easily contact your account executive to renew the license. 
 

Hosted licensing agreements view


hosted licensing view
 
Then, there’s the hosted licensing permission where you can report the usage of existing agreements, such as a Microsoft Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA). When a contract expires, you can contact your hosted licensing specialist to begin the renewal process. 
 

Software Licensing Agreement capabilities

 
Within the Software Licensing Agreement, there are several options to help you navigate your existing contracts. Each contract is organized by its publisher, so you can view all Adobe, IBM or Microsoft contracts within one dropdown. 
 
At the top of the menu, you can also view by all agreements, active agreements, expired agreements and pending agreements. 
 
product filter search
 
Within in each contract view, there are three options to select to review the contract:
 
  • The blue question mark will display a summary of what the agreement includes.
  • View products shows what products are included in that agreement.
  • View levels displays the license levels within that agreement.
