Removing inactive computers
When you decommission a computer in your infrastructure, remove it also from License Metric Tool. It ensures that software that was installed on that computer no longer contributes to utilization of license metrics. You have a number of options for removing inactive computers from License Metric Tool: through the user interface, through setting a parameter that automatically removes computers after a specific period or by creating an automation script that is based on REST API. The choice of the method depends on your preferences.
