AWS License Manager automated discovery now supports tag-based search and automatic detection of software uninstalls to further simplify the management of software licenses in AWS and on-premises environments. Administrators can now use custom defined tags to discover installed software in their environments, and have License Manager track the discovered instances throughout their lifecycle. When software is uninstalled, License Manager automatically detects the uninstallation and updates its centralized reporting and dashboard.

AWS License Manager makes it easier to bring your existing software licenses from vendors such as Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, and IBM to AWS, and centrally manage these licenses across AWS and on-premises environments. Automated discovery capability in AWS License Manager helps detect software installs and uninstalls, alert when it detects licensing violations, and update AWS License Manager’s built-in dashboard to provide administrators visibility of license usage across all their environments.

AWS License Manager is offered at no additional charges. Visit the AWS License Manager web page, documentation, and frequently asked questions to learn more.
