License Statistics v6.22 restructured how License Statistics user account permissions are managed

  • Permissions are now controlled using roles: Administrator, User, or custom-defined
  • Visibility settings are controlled separately from permissions

During migration:

  • All accounts will gain permission to see all reports
  • Administrator accounts will keep the Administrator role, with permissions to access data for all license servers/features
  • Administrator accounts will keep their visibility settings
  • User accounts will keep the User role, with their account visibility settings migrated as specified in the table below 

The following table shows how permissions are migrated from settings made in License Statistics versions prior to v6.22 to the new settings introduced with v6.22.
