Managing licensing and usage

Before you begin

Understand how your license works. For more information, see Licensing and usage monitoring.

What to do next

You are required to keep a record of the size of deployments to report to IBM as requested. For more information about how to create and view audit snapshot license reports, see Audit snapshot.

You can deploy and configure the License Service Reporter on your QRadar® EDR cluster to produce audit snapshots. QRadar EDR automatically sends the license resource usage information to the License Service of IBM Cloud Pak® foundational services running on your QRadar EDR cluster. For more information, see Deploying License Service Reporter.

Once the License Service Reporter is deployed an audit snapshot can be generated as follows by running the following commands:
export LIC_SVC_URL=$(oc get routes -n ibm-common-services | grep ibm-licensing-service-instance | awk '{print $2}')
curl -k -H "Authorization:Bearer $(oc get secret ibm-licensing-default-reader-token -o jsonpath={.data.token} -n ibm-common-services | base64 -D)" -X GET https://$LIC_SVC_URL/snapshot -o
