Reading the report

The following columns (listed alphabetically) are available in this list. By default, some are available through the column chooser.

Column name Description
Allocated

Allocations may also be set (per license) to always count as consumption (regardless of inventory). For each inventory device, you can also modify the behavior of allocations.

The Allocated value is editable in the Consumption tab of the license properties. Furthermore, the type of allocation can be adjusted on the Licenses tab of the inventory device properties.
