Please do this!
I just came here looking for the same details.
We just switched to our paid license and the current license tracking, as displayed in the GUI, is effectively 'delayed' by 60 days. This makes it difficult for those of us who don't need to backup all user mailboxes and are trying to make sure we stay within our licensing.
Right now I basically have to track license usage in a spreadsheet, which obviously cumbersome.
Here are a few ideas to help resolve this issue:
1.) Display in the GUI, next to the current 'delayed' license usage count, a count of licensed mailboxes backed up in the last successfull backup. Also include how many days are left in the grace period
2.) Include the number of licensed mailboxes backed up in the job notification email.
3.) Provide a powershell (and REST API) for retrieving the following:
▪Number of licensed mailboxes backed up in the last successfull job
▪Number of licenses used by current backup selection
▪Effective license usage in X days (assuming no changes are made to backup selection). This would allow us to verify that we will be in compliance with our licensing by a given date.
▪Remaining days in grace period (assuming an over usage of licenses)
