Article Summary

Use the Licenses page to see a consolidated view of all Licenses for SaaS applications detected in your organization. Licenses are added automatically using data from your organization's applications. You can also manually add licenses when they are not added automatically; either one at a time or in bulk via CSV adapter. The Licenses page delivers increased management and oversight over the various SaaS licenses used in your organization.

It can help you understand:

  • Utilization of the licenses in your organization
  • Which licenses are active
  • What are your upcoming renewals
  • And more


Click the Assets icon Asset_Icon1 and from the left-pane, select Licenses.

The Licenses page opens displaying the default view. Not all of the fields are displayed by default. Use Edit Columns to add or remove columns. Each user can customize what fields appear in their own, personalized default view. For more information, see Setting Page Columns Displays.

Click the arrow next to any of the fields to see more details about that field.

Adapter Connections

Licenses are added automatically using data from your organization's discovered licenses. You can also manually add licenses via a CSV adapter. T

The icon in the Adapter Connections column indicates what source Axonius is drawing its data from for any of the displayed licenses (Zoom, Google, Okta, etc). License data can also be manually uploaded through the CSV adapter (for more information, see CSV - Licenses.)

There are many fields that you can view and query on the Licenses page. This includes the following fields:

  • Application - The specific application the license applies to.
  • Is Active License - Indicates if the license is active or expired.
  • License Payment - Indicates if the license is Free or Paid.
  • Subscription Term - Indicates if the license renewal plan is a Monthly Renewal, Annual Renewal, Expiration, or Other.
  • Quantity - Shows the number of licenses of that type.
  • Unit Price - The price for each individual license.
  • Total Cost - The Unit Price * Quantity.

  • License estimated total yearly cost (USD) - The license's average cost per year.
  • Start Date - The license's starting date.
  • End Date - The license's ending date.
