Will reporting on these products be an issue if we do not have them nor are entitled to them?

 

Environment

Release : 15.0
Component : SCRT REPORT MANAGEMENT APPLICATION

Resolution

In general terms, the reason why CA products show in the ISV SCRT report is because a license check was made.

With CA View/Deliver r12.2 a license check is made for ALL options regardless of what is actually being used.

Since all options (including IMS and Roscoe) are rolled up into the base SKU, you are licensed for each and keys are therefore provided.

It is important to know that r12.2 is no longer supported. This release went EOS back in October 2020.

The currently supported release 14.0 changes things a bit. With release 14.0 license checks are no longer issued for all options by default.

While the licensing/entitlement aspect has not changed, an LMP check for specific options will only be made when that specific option is actually used.

Therefore, once you migrate to r14.0 you should no longer see options that are not used (eg. IMS and ROSCOE) as entries in the report...unless of course they are actually used.

Finally, providing reports with these entries will not be an issue when they are interpreted by CA/Broadcom.
