License Compliance for Cloud Pak for Automation for Prod and Non-Prod env based on entitlement ratios


  • So, License Compliance advisor needs to provide the compliance status based on the below deployment criteria:

    • Prod vs Non-Prod: : Cloud Pak for Automation is charged differently for production vs non-product environments.

      • Also there are some components which are not chargeable for non-prod but are chargeable for production environments.  .

  • Ability to provide status of compliance based on Cloud Pak for Auto Entitlement value ratios: When customer purchases CP4Auto licenses, entitlement values are based on the capability customers chooses to use.
