Create new Node CIT attributes, tracking date & discovery job name which changed license consumption

Idea ID 2705673

Thank you for sharing your idea! It’s open for comments a...


I have had many customer discussions during which it would have been very helpful to be able to tell

- which discovery job
- did change a node from "no license consumed" to "does consume a license"


Extend the "Node" CIT with two additional fields
- "discovery job name which caused license consumption to change"
- "Last modified date of license consumption"

and of course implement the logic to set these fields accordingly.

Best regards

This helps identify the problem, but it doesn't help with remediation.  There should be an option to rollback or delete discovery data that causes you to consume a UD Full license.
