Track Meraki Licenses in CMDB

Do you, and if so, how?

Here's what I came up with:

* Create an Access Point CI for each device (e.g. MR24), recording its serial number

* Create a Software CI (I created sub category called "Cloud Application") for each cloud controller license, recording the license key and acquisition date

* Create a Software License Contract recording the adjusted coterminous expiry date, total license spend and license count

Now, add each Software CI to the contract as a covered asset.

Attach each software license to the access point it covers (I used a "Managed By" relationship).

Maybe I'm overthinking it, but curious if anyone has a better way to track these. I suppose you could track the APs as leased hardware, but that's not quite how Meraki works.
