Specify the License Management folders (contexts) that you want the administrator’s License Management rights to apply to. To select a folder, click Add to display the Contexts dialog box, browse for and select the folder (or multiple folders), then click OK. The rights also apply to the folder’s subfolders.

7.12.2 Privileges

The Privileges section lets you grant the administrator rights to work with the software license components associated with the contexts (folders) you selected in the Contexts section.

The following rights are available:
