Creating a job
You can create a job to check license compliance, or to connect CIs to licenses and then check compliance. After you create the job, you can either run it immediately or schedule it to run at a later time.
To create a job
- In the navigation pane of the Software Asset Management (SAM) console, choose Functions > Manage License Jobs.
- In the Manage License Jobs console below the list of license jobs, click Create.
In the Create License Job dialog box, specify the following information:
This job applies to licenses for the company that you select.
Enter a descriptive name to identify this job.
Select whether the job is active or inactive.
Select to check license compliance with or without checking for the CIs connected to the license.
To check for CIs to connect to the license, and then check license compliance, select COMPLIANCE OR ALL.
To check compliance without connecting CIs, select COMPLIANCE.
To restrict the certificates being checked, specify the job criteria.
You can run jobs for a specific license type, such as Per Instance.
Product catalog fields
You can specify the product manufacturer, product name, product market version, or product categorization.
Important: If you specify market version in the job, but the certificate does not indicate market version, no license certificates are checked.
This field is auto populated with the name of the production dataset.
To specify the licenses and CIs being checked, specify the following information:
Advanced Certificate Criteria
You can build any certificate criteria with the advanced qualification builder. For more information, see Using the advanced qualification builder.
Advanced CI Criteria
The license certificate contains connection questions that determine applicable CIs for the license. However, you can specify Advanced CI Criteria to restrict the scope of CIs that are checked. For more information, see Using the advanced qualification builder.
Important: Limiting the scope of CIs that are checked improves performance when running the license job.
