Applies to: Cayosoft Administrator 4.X or later.
Summary: Cayosoft Administrator has granular control over how Office 365 License plans are presented in Web Interface through the use of Attribute Policies. You can make some plans read-only or even hide them from UI for all users, or a specific set of users, over the desired scope (Administrative Unit).
For more information about Attribute Policies and how they work, please refer to Cayosoft Administrator documentation at https://support.cayosoft.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015404191.
How to hide a specific license plan(s) from the 'New User' web action
In this example we will configure Attribute Policy to hide a specific Office 365 license plan from the New User action in the Active Directory Web Query for all users:
- Open Cayosoft Administrator Console
- Navigate to Web Portal
- Click Attribute Policies
- Click the button Add Attribute Policy in the upper right corner
- Enter the name of the new policy, then expand the Policy Details
- Click Add in the Policy Scope section
- On the Specify Policy Scope dialog, select the Active Directory in the first column titled Admin Units
- Select AD Users in the second column titled Web Queries
Note: You can select additional web queries if needed like AD User Templates, AD Users (Inactive), or AD Users (Locked out)
- Select New User in the third column titled Web Actions
Note: You can also select other actions that have Assign License functionality, like Clone User, Office 365 License and Enable Mailbox
- Click OK
- Click the newly created scope to select it
- In the Attribute policy settings section, select License Options Attribute
- Click Edit Policy
- Select Hide in the drop down near the desired license plan(s)

- Click OK to close the dialog
- Click Save Changes
How to make a license plan to be selected by default
If you need to make some license plans selected by default, you can select checkbox near this plan on the Attribute Policy Setting dialog. Be aware, that this option doesn't work if the plan visibility set to Hide:
How to set a license plan to read-only state
Read Only and Read Only [include childs] options are useful if you want these plans to be always checked or unchecked on UI when assigning licenses.
Read Only on a license plan applies to license plan itself, but you still be able to change options in it. If you choose Read Only [include childs] for a plan you won't be able to change plan options also.
