GLOSSARY
Term
Explanation
Licensing
ID
A Licensing ID is the categorical term that describes the orderable level of the
customer relationship with Microsoft. Depending on the specific Microsoft Volume
Licensing program, a Licensing ID may be an Enrolment (Enterprise or Select
programs), an Affiliate (Select Plus program), an Agreement (Open Value
program), or a License (Open License program).
The Parent Program is the next level up from the Licensing ID in the Volume
Licensing Agreement structure.

This is the web site where Select, Select Plus, SPLA, Enterprise, Campus, School
and Open Value customers used to register their Licensing IDs. This has now
been retired and in its place all functionality is now available on the Volume
License Service Center - https://www.microsoft.com/licensing/servicecenter.
The primary purpose of the site is to provide you with fast, easy, customisable
access to information about your licensing agreements.
This is the web site where Open License customers used to register their License
IDs. This has now been retired and in its place all functionality is now available on
the Volume License Service Center https://www.microsoft.com/licensing/servicecenter.
The Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) is quickly emerging as the onestop location for management of all your Microsoft Volume Licensing entitlements.
With the retirement of MVLS and eOpen the Volume Licensing Service Center
has fully replaced the MVLS and eOpen functions. This allows us to provide an
integrated, cohesive and simplified experience for Microsoft Volume Licensing
customers.
