Viewing conflicting licenses

When you click Conflicts on the menu bar, you can see the users that have licenses that contain duplicated services, which can result in unnecessary costs. You can use the Conflicts page to determine if one of the conflicting licenses is unnecessary.

The Conflicts page shows a table that includes the user display name, tenant name, and the licenses that have overlapping services. If you click the user row containing the licenses, the details of the services in each license are displayed. The individual services in each license are shown in a right side panel with colored activity indicators beside each service that let you see if the service is active, inactive, never been used, and so on.

The minimum cost is based on the cost of the less costly license that is in conflict. For example, if a user has both an E5 and an E3 license, the minimum loss would be the cost of the cheaper license.

You can display only the services that are different (not conflicting) by moving the Display Common Services toggle to the left.

You can use the EDIT COLUMNS option to update the table by selecting the columns that you want to include.
