Running the Licensing Report wizard

After you have installed the Licensing Report wizard as part of authentication, privilege elevation, and audit and monitoring services or as a separate standalone installation package, you can run the wizard to generate a licensing report. You can start the wizard from within Access Manager or by navigating to it from the Start menu.

To run the wizard from within Access Manager:

  1. Open Access Manager.
  2. Right-click Centrify Access Manager, then select either Centrify Licensing Report (DirectControl) or Centrify Licensing Report (DirectControl & DirectAudit).

    If you select DirectControl, the licensing report utility automatically checks the current forest for authentication and privilege elevation information using your current account credentials. If you need to specify different credentials or check audit and monitoring service licenses, select Centrify Licensing Report (DirectControl & DirectAudit) or from the Start menu select Centrify Licensing Report.

  3. Click Next to accept the default domain controller and your current credentials to retrieve deployment information.

    If necessary, you can specify a different domain controller and select the option to specify a different user if your current account does not have permissions to retrieve deployment information, then click Next.

  4. If the Audit Management service is not running, or if DirectManage Audit version 2015.1 or earlier is installed, or if you do not have the necessary audit and monitoring service permissions, you are prompted to specify credentials to retrieve audit installation information.

    If you see this prompt, click Next to use your current credentials to retrieve audit installation information.

    If necessary, you can select the option to specify a different user, then specify a different user name and password if your current account does not have the “Manage Licenses” or “View” permission for the audit installation, then click Next.

    If you do not see this prompt, go to Step 6 and continue from there.

  5. If the Audit Management service is not running, or if DirectManage Audit version 2015.1 or earlier is installed, or if you do not have the necessary audit permissions, you are prompted to specify whether your current credentials can be used to retrieve audit and monitoring service installation information.

    If you see this prompt, click Next if the credentials specified in Step 4 can retrieve information for all of the audit installations listed.

    If necessary, you can select an audit and monitoring service installation and click Change Credentials to specify a different user name and password for connecting to a specific installation, then click Next.

    If you do not see this prompt, go to Step 6 and continue from there.

  6. Specify the name and folder location for the licensing report and whether to hide host, zone, and installation names in the report output, then click Next.

    • By default, the licensing report output is located in your Documents folder with a name in the format of Centrify_Licensing_Report_yyyymmdd.txt, where yyyymmdd is the year, month, and date indicating when you are generating the report. If a report of the same name already exists in that location, a version number suffix is added to the default report name.
    • Select the option to Hide host, zone, and installation names from the report to keep this information private. The wizard will generate random strings to replace host, zone, and installation names in the report output. Note that selecting this option does not obfuscate the Active Directory forest name. The forest name is required to send the report output to Centrify. All other names included in the report can be replaced with random strings.
  7. Review the output location and file name, then click Next to generate the report.
  8. To preview the report before saving it or sending it to Centrify, click Preview Report.

    To open the report for editing or to save it as a different file name, leave the Open the output report option selected and click Exit.

    To send the report output directly to the Centrify Support portal, click Send to Centrify.

  9. Click OK to acknowledge that the report will be sent and continue.

    You will be given a reference number for communicating with support about the report and prompted to log in using your Centrify account user name and password. After logging in, click Continue to display details about your report.
