Defender for Endpoint for SERVER licensing question.

Occasional Contributor

Hi everyone. Hope you're all safe and well.


Does anyone know how you apply a Defender for Endpoint for Server license to a server?


I've helped a partner onboard the servers via Azure Security Center in to Defender for Endpoint, but the licences applied to the tenant are not decreasing.


I've hunted high and low(!) for clarity but I cannot find an answer.


The best I've found is this, and it's not clear.


Any help would be very gratefully received.

@Darren_Bennett Could you please share more details on which portal are you expecting the license to be decreased? If you onboard servers via Azure security center, you should be able to see under the security center inventory page: Security Center - Microsoft Azure
