Behaviour of paid VPP apps in the managed environment

Contributor II

Hello all,

Just a quick query.
So I know that in our managed environment, that there are some paid straggler apps on devices that weren't bought via ASM.

We're looking into purchasing some licenses, either via our software provider or via ASM. Does anyone know what will happen to the 'In use' and 'remaining' fields under 'App Store Apps'?

So at present, there aren't any licenses requested/available. Will newly purchased licenses from VPP immediately get chewed up by those devices that have previously submitted an inventory update? 
So, do purchases shoot from purchased to 'In-use', straight away if JAMF knows the app is installed on machines in the managed environment?

Thanks all!
