Sentinel RMS API Reference Guide

SCL Add on combines the license enforcement features of Sentinel RMS, the license provisioning and entitlement management features of Sentinel EMS and the cloud platform. It provides benefit of cloud-served licensing to applications deployed in customer's network or hosted online. Usage collection and reporting is the most significant advantage obtained with cloud-served licensing.
