AWS License Manager has added support for attaching license configurations to instances running on premises. This new capability further simplifies how customers can use License Manager to centrally manage licenses across their hybrid IT environments.

License Manager integrates with AWS Systems Manager Inventory to support instances on premises. Previously, customers could use AWS License Manager to discover instances running on premises and search inventory of installed operating system and application software. With this new capability, License Manager is now able to track licenses as the state of an on-premises instance changes. Once a license configuration is attached to an on-premises instance, License Manager periodically collects software inventory, updates licensing information, and refreshes its built-in dashboards to report usage.

AWS License Manager is offered at no additional charges and is currently available in US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US East (Ohio), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Europe (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), and Europe (London).
