Enhancements in Snow License Manager 8.2.4:

  • To visualize Office 365 user activity, inventoried users in SLM need to be linked to their corresponding user profile extracted by the Microsoft Office 365 Connector. If the number of linked users is below 80%, an alert now shows on the Microsoft Office 365 This alert panel provides information about how linking can be achieved.
  • Snow License Manager now provides support in the Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Hungarian, Japanese, Polish, and Russian language versions. Support for these languages in reports will come in a later release.
  • The detail on the All Oracle orders report has been improved through the addition of new column-selector fields: CSI, License cost(currency), License type, Metric*, Period type, Product*, Product type, Quantity*, Support cost (currency), and Type (where * indicates default columns for the report). In the same report, calculation of the values shown in the columns for License cost (currency), Support cost (currency), and Total cost (currency) has been modified so that the cost per Oracle order row is displayed, and not the cost for the entire Oracle order.
  • A new column, Cost(currency), has been added to the Subscription plans tab of the user details page. The values displayed in this column show the current monthly cost for the subscription. 
  • The search for computers function has been refactored to improve performance.
