Like other vRealize Operations Manager groups, you create a license group of objects as a way of gathering those objects for data collection. In this case, you are associating the objects with a product license.

License groups require that you select one or more keys that you already added for solution or product activation, and add objects as members to a custom group for those licenses. You might, for example, want to add objects into groups that are associated with a particular level of license key, and monitor or manage by level of key in order to control licensing costs.

In the left pane, select Administration > Licensing and click the License Groups tab.

The options include toolbar and data grid options.

Use the toolbar options to add, edit, or remove items.
