Advanced Product Features

Advanced features explained

Usage Count

An entitlement can have one or more ‘counter’ features. The usage counter tracks usage over time and can be easily reset to zero.

For example, you may have a 1-year subscription that provides 1000 report runs over the year. The feature would track how many reports had been run so far (with the application deducting one from the count each time the report is run).

Once you have an entitlement set up using usage counters, you may need to manage the usage levels on these advanced features. In certain cases, you may wish to leave an entitlement in place with a client and edit its usage levels instead of offering a new entitlement with more usage, etc. See how to Reset the usage count on an entitlement.

Element Pool

Element Pools represent a concurrent aggregate count of some measure.

For example, let’s say there is a storage management cluster, and the business model is to charge for the aggregate amount of storage under management across the cluster. Each node would check out from the element pool the quantity of storage that node was managing (50TB, 100TB, etc.), and the licensing would enforce that at no time was the aggregate amount of storage licensed ever exceeded.

How to use advanced features

Options include Usage Count and Element Pools.

  • If you choose the Usage option, you can choose between "Limited" and "Unlimited" usage values; obviously, if you pick unlimited, there's no value to set for the default count.

To learn what each of the values above means, refer to the Glossary here
