Options - AWS License Manager


The options you can specify when you create a new version of a grant, such as activation override behavior. For more information, see Granted licenses in License Manager in the AWS License Manager User Guide.

  • As a license administrator, you can optionally specify an ActivationOverrideBehavior when activating a grant.

  • As a grantor, you can optionally specify an ActivationOverrideBehavior when you activate a grant for a grantee account in your organization.

  • As a grantee, if the grantor creating the distributed grant doesn’t specify an ActivationOverrideBehavior, you can optionally specify one when you are activating the grant.
