AWS License Manager automated discovery now allows customers to exclude instances that do not need license payment per a customer’s licensing agreements. AWS License Manager automatically tracks instances across AWS and on-premises environments based on customer defined rules. While configuring automated discovery, administrators can now define exclusion rules using custom defined tags or AWS Account IDs to identify instances that should not count towards license usage. It helps automated discovery exclude instances that matches these rules and thus further simplifies the management of software licenses.

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