Snipe-IT - How Do You Manage Subscription/Maintenance/SaaS?



  • I have been using the hosted version of Snipe-IT for almost a year. Currently, I am on v4.2.0 build 3479. I am adding assets as I get them and back-filling as time permits/necessary. In adding licenses, I am having trouble with the how I should manage the added maintenance agreements for software, subscription-based software licensing (especially, Office 365, as mid-term adds will push the renewal date for the entire license class back) and SaaS,

    Should I create a new license instance each time I renew? Or would I just modify the dates on the existing license instance?How would you recommend doing it?

    Also, is anyone using it to track domain registrations?



  • Why are you on 4.2.0 that's way out of date 4.4.1 Build 3636 is current. . . as for managing licensing that renew, I just put the purchase and expiry dates into the system, if the license isn't one that actually renews I simply remove it from the system and add the new one.

    I will put in a ticket for that. I thought it was older than the current.

    Anyway, thanks for the tips. Does the deleted license stay in the record somewhere, or is it completely removed?



  • @wrx7m from what I've seen Snipe say is that nothing actually is ever deleted.

    And licenses that expire are still able to be checked out. I created a feature request some time ago to make it so expired assets weren't able to be checked out. I don't recall if that was ever completed or not. But would be a great feature to have if not.

    Also to filter out the "current" and "expired" licenses from the list would be good too.



  • It looks like my issue went stale and they never worked on it.

  • I submitted the ticket yesterday and they upgraded my site overnight. 🙂
