Transfer licenses to Apple Business Manager
Within your organisation, you can move licences from one location to another. You can also transfer licences in order to consolidate VPP purchases from multiple accounts, or to decentralise and distribute licences to match your organisation’s structure. (For example, a location in Apple Business Manager might represent a building, a department or a group.)
To transfer licences in Apps and Books, search for and then select an app in your library. In the details section, you can view the number of available licences at each location you have access to.
Click Transfer. Then, in the pop-over, enter both the number of licences (up to 24,999 at a time) and the location where you want to move them. The transfer, which may take a few minutes, is reflected in the number of licences at the new location. The new number of licences for the location token is also reflected in your mobile device management (MDM) solution. Check your MDM documentation for the expected behaviour.
Note: Transfers won’t disrupt licence assignments in MDM. Only unassigned licences can be transferred to another location.
