Monitor License Usage
Obtain information about your Kong Gateway database-backed deployment, including license usage and deployment information using the License Report module. Share this information with Kong to perform a health-check analysis of product utilization and overall deployment performance to ensure your organization is optimized with the best license and deployment plan for your needs.
How the license report module works:
- The license report module manually generates a report containing usage and deployment data by sending a request to an endpoint, as defined below.
- Share this report with your Kong representative to perform an analysis of your deployment.
What the license report module does not do:
- The license report module does not automatically generate a report or send any data to any Kong servers.
- The license report module does not track or generate any data other than the data that is returned in the response after you send a request to the endpoint.
Important: The license report functionality cannot be used in a DB-less deployment.
