Hi @RamyashreeMada 

 

Thanks for writing to Live Community.

 

1. About license utilization - from our official documentation:

 

With Cortex XDR Prevent and Cortex XDR Pro per Endpoint licenses, Cortex XDR manages licensing for all endpoints in your organization. Each time you install a new Cortex XDR agent on an endpoint, the Cortex XDR agent registers with Cortex XDR to obtain a license. In the case of non-persistent VDI, the Cortex XDR agent registers with Cortex XDR as soon as the user logs in to the endpoint.

Cortex XDR issues licenses until you exhaust the number of license seats available. Cortex XDR also enforces a license cleanup policy to automatically return unused licenses to the pool of available licenses. 

 

You can read more about license types, allocation and revocation here.



2. Can you elaborate on what you mean by 'deployment method'? If you're referring to tenant activation and licensing:

When clicking your activation link, In the Available for Activation section, you can view all the tenants allocated to your CSP account that are ready for activation. You can review the tenant details, such as license type, number of endpoints, Cortex Data Lake, and purchase date.

 

You can read more about the activation process here.

 

I also suggest viewing this short video about license activation.
