About Licensed Software

Licensed software allows you to store and track licenses for the software in your environment so you can easily access license and purchasing information and monitor license compliance.

For each software product that you want to track licenses for, you must create a licensed software record in the JAMF Software Server (JSS). These records allow you to store information about the licenses owned and the software titles that count toward each license (called “software definitions”).

Each time a computer submits inventory to the JSS, the software on the computer is compared to the software definitions in the licensed software records. If they match, the computer counts toward the number of licenses in use.

After creating licensed software records, you can use the JSS to evaluate and monitor license compliance, view and report on the licenses in use, and view Application Usage information for the software you’re tracking licenses for.
