I had a question about compliance reporting and with threshold changes as entitlements to products are reduced/increased.
We have a number of IBM products that were decomm’d and removed from our environment last year and I have been asked to set the entitlement thresholds to zero for these products, as we are not paying for the products any longer (as of 1/1/2020).
As far as historical reporting goes, changing these thresholds at any given time will alter the thresholds going back as far as our history goes. And this throws off the reporting if someone wants to look at a report from say June 2019.
Not sure if this is a best practice to do so? Or should the thresholds be left intact…as if the product(s) are not found on the target servers, they will not show in my subcapacity reports, as expected.
