|This page refers to License Statistics v6.11 and newer, which introduced Feature Collections. |
This feature is available with the new licensing model - 2019 only.
Feature Collections let you gather more meaningful statistics for features that are combined into packages and sold as a single product by the vendor. In packages such as this, you may have the same feature that has been purchased with multiple different packages, and the price of the feature may differ for each package. For example, feature F1 may be included in multiple packages and priced differently for each.
In such cases, you can use Collections to separate the F1 usage reporting based on which package the feature is in, rather than reporting all F1 usage together.
Collections are currently supported only for Autodesk license manager. By default, Features do not belong to a Collection.
You can enable Collections by toggling this option on in the Gathering settings when adding a new license server. This setting cannot be changed after creating the license server or be applied to an existing license server, because this would invalidate previously gathered data for that license server.
When you enable Collections for a license server, features for that license server will be reported on individually based on their Collection name. The Collection name can be viewed in reports that include information for Features; however, note that this column is hidden by default.
The Collection name is also shown in parentheses following the version and type in feature selectors, labels, and notifications; for example:
