Common Dimensions

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)
This section documents dimensions that are common to both the Installation analysis and the Consumption analysis. These include:
  • The Point in time dimension, which sets the reporting period for your custom reports, and determines how many saved data snapshots are included in them
  • Four dimensions covering the four types of enterprise group (Corporate unit, Location, Cost center and Category) that allow you to segment the reported figures across your enterprise, using the corporate structure you have established in FlexNet Manager Suite
  • Four near-duplicate dimensions (Corporate unit (Software license), Location (Software license), Cost center (Software license) and Category (Software license)), which, although they are unique to the Consumption analysis, are included in this section because their attributes and values exactly duplicate the previous four. The distinct purpose of these additional dimensions is to allow reporting on the ownership of software licenses, as distinct from the consumption of software licenses using the previously-mentioned four dimensions. Thus you could, for example, use custom reports to track down licenses assigned to (owned by) the Marketing department, but accidentally being consumed by the Sales team.
