My Apps License Reclamation Policies

App Portal 2020 R1

On the App Portal My Apps tab, users can view a list of applications installed on their devices, and address automatic and administrator-defined alerts to ensure that those applications comply with corporate software policies. This assists IT administrators in driving continual software license reclamation and optimization.

To specify which applications in your enterprise you want to target for license reclamation (uninstallation), you need to add those applications to the My Apps License Reclamation Policies list, which is opened by selecting Compliance Management > My Apps.

When adding applications to this list, you can select from a list of applications with identified Flexera IDs or those that have a license created in FlexNet Manager Suite. You can also choose to search the entire Application Recognition Library for an application to add.
