Know how OpenLM Group Usage works and get to utilize more with this extension.

The Group Usage extension facilitates attributing license usage to different cost centers and improves the planning of license acquisition, maintenance, and allocation. This can be done in a number of ways: manually, by uploading a CSV file, using the options file, or using the Directory Synchronization extension.


When used along with the last option, OpenLM can interface with a company’s directory service and synchronize with its Organizational Units (OUs) and users’ workgroups. Consequently:


  1. End-users are able to clearly identify users who are currently holding the licenses they need.
  2. License usage can be attributed to specific organizational units and workgroups.


There are 4 ways to incorporate users and groups into OpenLM:

  1. Configure Group Usage – Manual
  2. Configure Group Usage – Upload a CSV file
  3. Configure Group Usage – Options File
  4. Configure Group Usage – Active Directory

Prerequisites & System Requirements

The OpenLM Group Usage extension requires the OpenLM Agent to be installed on the end-user’s workstations and the OpenLM Server on a dedicated machine. Download these components here.
