Workspace ONE UEM offers several ways to revoke managed distribution licenses so that you can reuse them. You can manually revoke licenses. The system revokes licenses in response to you deleting or unassigning another system component like organization groups, sTokens, and smart groups.

See what methods are available to you to revoke your managed distribution licenses for reuse.

Method

Description

You can use the manual method only for those licenses that are redeemed from an external system. This method is useful for adopting these licenses into Workspace ONE UEM.

Workspace ONE UEM makes licenses available immediately after revoking or at a scheduled interval depending on the interval you set in the scheduler task, VPP revoke licenses. Find the scheduler task in Groups & Settings > All Settings > Admin > Scheduler.
