The license for a Prod tenant is valid for one year, but for the Dev tenant, we need to use a Trial license that needs to be updated every second month. When you are managing a lot of tenants, this becomes hopeless.  We need a seperate license to be used for Dev tenants that have the same number of users and same expire date as the Prod tenant.

Speak to the Micro Focus licensing team. Their contacts details should be on the MySupport portal. If the SMA suite licensing is like the individual products, there should be an option for non production licenses which cater for dev, qa, dr.

This is already doable by using Non-Production license in MF license portal - tenant needs to be classed as Internal in SMAX. This has worked for our customers since 2018.02 -> 2018.11
