Monitoring License Compliance

Maximo and other ISM applications can be licensed in different ways and measuring license compliance can get confusing. IBM does not 'lock out' users when licenses are exceeded but we do perform occasional audits. There are a few tools within the system that you can use to self-monitor your license compliance.
If you are licensed by registered users, User Types will be important. Out of the box we ship Type 1 through Type 10 as values in a standard domain. You can add more values and descriptions at they meet your business needs. For example, if you have TSRM and Maximo on your system you will have a mix of full users of each product and casual users of each product and maybe some users that use both. Set up a 'type' for each user community and associate the appropriate IDs with the appropriate types.
If you have a 100 concurrent user license you can set the value of mxe.
There are also standard KPIs for both user sessions and user types that can be added to an administrator's start center to keep up on compliance metrics.
Auditing can also be enabled to prove compliance over time.
There is a tech note that provides more details. It references TSRM but applies to any TPAE based product.
