AWS License Manager allows enforcing licensing rules with shared AMIs across multiple AWS accounts

Recommended Posts

AWS License Manager allows administrators to create customized licensing rules in license configurations to emulate the terms of their vendor agreements. Administrators can use License Manager to enforce these rules by attaching license configurations to their Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). Administrators can now attach license configurations to their AMIs to make the enforcement effective across all their AWS accounts. License Manager evaluates licensing rules at the time of instance launch from AMIs to prevent overages and notify administrators in an event of any licensing rule violation. License Manager also allows administrators to track instance launches from AMIs shared with them from other AWS accounts. Administrators thus gain control and visibility of their licenses used across all AWS accounts and reduce the risk of non-compliance, misreporting, and additional costs due to licensing overages.
