License information page access

License information page access

License management is done at the site level, but is there anyway to give someone access to the license information page without being a site admin? Their goal is to be able to see how many licenses there are and how many are available. Won't need access to load license file.

If you enable Windchill Performance Advisor, in the relevant dashboard you can see allocated licenses versus available licenses

Yeah, I can see why the limitation is there, but I guess what I'm looking for is a report of license usage at the org level.

 

As of 11.2, you can allow license management utility at the organization level by enabling the preference at site level.

There's a REST service, PTC.PrincipalMgmt, where you can query the license groups and principals, you could count how many users are in the license group with a REST url perhaps

I'm looking for something that a user can utilize, so something in the Windchill UI ideally.

This looks like a good idea but you might have to give users added rights.  Not sure how that will work.

You can probably use a query builder report with the option "Bypass Access Control" to get current license counts that are assigned, but I don't know if the count of licenses available are stored in any database tables anywhere. 

I have no idea if there is a table in the Windchill DB where real-time accesses are saved, so that we can check the users logged in at a specific time, however there are a couple of other reports that might be useful to check which licenses are assigned to a user and how frequently he uses them (every first daily access is reported).

With the second one you can check what actions are available to users depending on the Windchill license profile
