AWS License Manager announces support for license usage tracking for customers granting entitlements from AWS Marketplace. This feature allows AWS Marketplace to track and meter license usage across AMI and metered SaaS products.

AWS Marketplace customers can now track their license usage in the AWS License Manager console and via Amazon CloudWatch metrics. Additionally, administrators can track usage metrics across the licenses they have granted to other AWS accounts in their organization.

Managed entitlements consists of two distinct experiences including Seller issued licenses and Granted licenses. Seller issued licenses allow Independent Software Vendors (ISV) and AWS Marketplace to create and distribute licenses to their end customers. Customers, upon receipt of a license, can use Granted licenses to more easily distribute entitlements access to their AWS accounts or organization. Using Granted licenses, AWS Marketplace customers can now track and monitor their license usage where available. License usage metrics are available via AWS License Manager console and Amazon CloudWatch. Visit the Granted licenses documentation to learn more.
