  3. Perform one of the following actions:

    • Click Month Period and select one of the following options:
      • Last month. This indicates last calendar month. For example, if you run a report on November 5, the report is generated from 1 October to 31 October.

If only a single tenant is present in Remedy Single Sign-On (RSSO), the Tenant list on the License Usage - Consumption Data page displays the tenant name, and is disabled. In the Tenant list, the All option is not available. When you generate a report for the tenant, only the Usage Summary - <tennant_name> table is generated. The Usage Summary - All table is not generated.

You can download the report as a PDF or a CSV file. After generating the report, click the  icon, and click PDF or CSV to export the report to the desired format. The PDF and CSV files display all the summary and detail reports that are available for each tenant for the selected time range. If the data for a component is tampered with or damaged, the PDF and CSV files display the following message above the component that has tampered data:
