Usage Reports

Important:

Only certain regions and user account types have access to usage reports.

Usage reports outline the licensing details for a particular partner on a monthly basis. Licensing Management Platform notifies partners when the monthly usage reports are ready for review and submission to the distributor. Distributors can then approve the monthly usage report or reject the report and request more information.

The following table outlines the information contained within a monthly usage report.
