Groups License Activity Report tool – AN3003a

The OpenLM Groups License Activity Report tool provides the ability to present an historical account of groups’ license usage sessions.

More details:

OpenLM provides an easy interface for monitoring software license usage. It does so for a constantly expanding variety of concurrent license manager types, e.g. FlexLM / Flexnet, Sentinel RMS Reprise RLM, MathLM, DSLS, Sentinel HASP, LM-X, IBM-LUM etc.

OpenLM is capable of reporting usage according to Users, User groups, Hosts, Host groups, Organizational Units and Projects. OpenLM’s web application – EasyAdmin – presents users’ accumulated data in a variety of real-time windows (e.g. “Active Products” and “Feature Usage Status” windows), and historical usage tables (e.g. “License usage” and “License activity” windows). See the OpenLM screenshots document for more information.


The OpenLM Groups License Activity Report tool provides this ability.

OpenLM License Activity

The EasyAdmin License Activity window provides an account for all ended sessions on license managers that are monitored by OpenLM. This window contains columns for the User Name, Feature name and Session Start & End times. (Some items on the image below have been deleted for privacy considerations)


The users who populate this list are members of groups in the OpenLM database. These groups may be introduced either manually, or by means of LDAP (Active Directory) synchronization.

Please refer to these Application notes:
