You can view license usage information for Metallic features and workloads in the Subscription Usage tiles.
The Subscription Usage tile for each feature or workload displays license usage. On the tile, click the total number of licenses consumed to see more detailed information in the Subscription Usage Report.
Each feature or workload is calculated differently, based on the requirements for its associated license. For example, usage for the following workloads is calculated based on specific settings or the number of active entities:
Exchange: Based on the number of active O365 licenses.
OneDrive: Based on the OneDrive Quota setting.
SharePoint: Based on the number of active SharePoint users.
Teams: No usage or license is calculated to back up Teams data.
Office 365 Licensing
You only need one Office 365 license for Metallic, regardless of the number or combination of Office 365 applications backed up in your environment. You don't need a separate license for each Office 365 application.
If a user leaves your organization, Metallic updates the license usage automatically. For example, the following workloads are updated according to the conditions of each license:
Exchange and SharePoint: If the Office 365 license is still applied to the former user, then Metallic continues to perform backups. After the license is removed, Metallic stops performing backups within 24 hours. After Metallic stops performing backups, the Metallic Office 365 license is released, and the Subscription Usage tile reflects this change on the first of the following month.
OneDrive: If the Office 365 license is removed and the OneDrive Quota is still enabled, Metallic continues to perform backups for the user. After the OneDrive Quota expires, Metallic stops performing backups within 24 hours. After Metallic stops performing backups, the Metallic Office 365 license is released, and the Subscription Usage tile reflects this change on the first of the following month.
Teams: Teams is not included in the usage calculation and does not appear on the Subscription Usage tile.
For Endpoint, the licenses are calculated on a per user basis. Every User can backup up to 3 endpoints using a single license.
