Sorry if this is a bit basic, but I'm struggling a bit with 1Password and software licence key management.
For business use, there are two critical pieces of info I need to track. The licence key itself and the purchase receipt. The receipt is necessary because of how software audits work. On the surface, this seems simple enough. Create a software licence and link the receipt as a document. But then the real-world creeps in and starts making a mess of things.
I don't usually buy licences in a single shot. A handful are purchased for testing and the rest when the software is rolled out. And licences will be added when the company expands. Plus, some licences may be linked documents too (useful for xml).
The end result, something like AV software can easily have 5 or 6 individual linked documents. And working with the software stack installed across a company, you're going to end up with tons of secure documents.
This whole process seems to create a lot of seemingly unnecessary data that needs to be managed (i.e. Coming up with a naming scheme for all the receipt documents and the licence documents). And it makes finding things that I do store as stand-alone secure documents (like SSH keys), difficult to locate. It's a single to noise problem.
So, am I missing something. Is there a better way for me to use 1Password to manage software licences?
