The count of licensed nodes is negotiated in the contract between Mendix and customer. It becomes a resource which requires management. Currently, the only way to know the count of containers which we consumed, we have to open every single application we own. It is 22 applications (~50 nodes); next year it will triple. Manual counting of nodes quickly becomes a no-go.
Suggest enhancing Deploy APIs by including the plan into the environment payload. See support ticket below for further details.
