View reconciliation results

You view the results of your reconciliations from the Reconciliation page.

To view your reconciliation results:

1.On the navigation bar, under Reconciliation, click Previous Reconciliations.
The Reconciliation page appears, showing a list of all previous reconciliations.

The Partial column indicates if the reconciliation was a full reconciliation (indicated by full reconciliation icon) or a partial reconciliation (indicated by partial reconciliation icon). Holding your mouse pointer over one of these icons displays a tooltip that provides more information about the type of reconciliation.

2.Click the hyperlink in the Name column for your reconciliation.
The Data Summary page appears for the reconciliation, showing the results for all vendors.

You can also access the Data Summary page directly from the navigation bar, by clicking Data Summary under Business Intelligence.

We are currently interested in only our Effective License Position for Microsoft, so let us filter the list to show only the results we are interested in.

3.In the filter box under Vendor, type Microsoft, then press ENTER
The list refreshes to show only results where the vendor is Microsoft.

The columns of particular interest to us are:

Liability – the number of units of a product that have been identified from inventory data

Shortfall – the number of units of liability that could not be covered by valid licenses

Surplus – the number of units of valid licenses that have not been used to cover liability

Compliance – the percentage of liability that has been covered by valid licenses

Total License Qty – the number of units of valid licenses for the product

What's Next?

Now that we have opened our reconciliation results, we can interpret them: What does it mean?
