Rearranging the Licenses of a Product Pack (Splitting)

Use Cases

  • You have a new Product Pack with, for instance, 100 unused licenses. You want to use 50 licenses now, and the the other 50 licenses three months later. But as soon as one license of a Product Pack is activated, the period of validity begins, and the expiry date of all licenses is set to the same value. Thus, you need a method to separate those licenses which should be activated now from those which should be activated in three months.
  • You want to renew only a subset of the licenses contained in a Product Pack. Thus, you need a method to separate those licenses which should be renewed from those which should be exempted from the renewal.

Splitting a Product Pack will result in two Product Packs; a defined number of licenses will be moved to the newly created Product Pack, while the rest remains in the original Product Pack.

A Product Pack can be split as often as desired until the number of remaining license slots is 1.
