SELECTserver allowed organizations to organize their licenses into sites and then further refine their access and reporting with the use of Custom Activation Groups with separated activation keys for each site or group. As Bentley shifts to the Subscription Entitlement Service (SES) which eliminates sites, we are introducing Allocation Groups. Allocation Groups offer an easy way to organize your users and applications in your reports. Under SeS Allocation Groups work based on User Login or Groups of Users. Since most customers are still running in a hybrid world of SeS and traditional SELECTserver licensing, we’ve introduced a way to map usage reported to SELECTserver under Activation Keys into Allocation Groups. This will allow your SELECTserver usage data to show up under Allocation Group reports in the Subscriptions Analytics Portal. The following instructions guide you through mapping your existing CAGs to the new Allocation Groups. If you have any questions or need additional help, please check the Frequently Asked Questions or contact technical support.
Review SELECTserver Sites and Custom Activation Groups
To see your organization’s existing sites Managed Sites List page located under the License Management menu option. You can view their Custom Activation Groups by either clicking on the number in the CAGs column or, using the Custom Activation Groups menu item under Site Configuration in the SELECTserver menu.
Create an Allocation Group
Allocation Groups are special groups in User Management that have been created to enhance Subscription Analytics. There is a restriction that a user can only be a member of 1 allocation group at a time and the system will stop you if you attempt to violate that rule. You can make any group that you may already have a Allocation Group as long as it doesn't violate this restriction.
Before you begin – It is recommended that you make sure all Bentley application users are registered in User Management.
The new Allocation Group is now created.
