1. To see if you have overlicensed Applications you need to run the licence compliance report.
2. If you find you have an application that has a positive number in the compliance column you will need to make a number of decisions on how to use the software.
a. You could leave the licence as it is and when a customer requests the software you can use this licence rather than purchasing a new licence
b. You could see if any other department needs the licence and pass the licence to that department. You would need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to transfer the licence.
c. See if you can downgrade a licence to cover any unlicensed version.
