    1. This this example, we will access Analyzer

  1. If you have free licenses available, you will see an "+ Allocate" button at the bottom of the page. When selecting this, you can pick the user(s) you wish to assign a license to
    1. To select multiple users, hold Ctrl when clicking each user
