Re: Enhancements to Glance in Diablo? Input welcomed


Licensing - Has there been a conversation around licensing? Glance may not be the place to manage licenses (issue, track, revoke, renew, register, etc...) but one attribute of an image is whether it needs a license or not and if it does, where does one go to get one.

Licensing service? Maybe it can start in Glance...
