you have almost everything ready....

  • go to Monitoring Apps --> License Monitor app
  • create in it variable starting with "=" sign and for as an expression use the one you need. In example below I used one from "Unallocated Professional Access" object. 
    • IF((license_type_enabled)='Token-based',
      IF(Sum({<[License Token Type]={"User*"}>}[License Allocated Tokens]-[License Used Tokens]-[License Quarantined Tokens])/Sum({<[License Token Type]={"User*"}>}[License Allocated Tokens])>0,
      Sum({<[License Token Type]={"User*"}>}[License Allocated Tokens]-[License Used Tokens]-[License Quarantined Tokens])/Sum({<[License Token Type]={"User*"}>}[License Allocated Tokens]),0)
      ,
      IF(Sum({<[License Token Type]={"Professional*"}>}[License Total Available Tokens])/Sum({<[License Token Type]={"Professional*"}>}[License Total Tokens])>0,
      Sum({<[License Token Type]={"Professional*"}>}[License Total Available Tokens])/Sum({<[License Token Type]={"Professional*"}>}[License Total Tokens]),0)
      )

  • go to NPrinting and create a connection to this app, reload metadata, create HTML report with some message.. for example: 
    • "Hi XYZ - the number of Unallocated Prodfessional Access licesnses is: %%-here add your variable %%"
  • now importnt thing - setup task
    • Create Publish task
    • Add report you have created with your message as HTML
    • Add users who will receive it
    • Choose email as destination
    • In Email section put report into email body (embed report)
    • go to conditions and setup condition!!!
      • this will dictate when report will be sent
      • base your condition on the variable you have created and set it up against the threshold
      • once done your report will or will not be send - this will depend if condition returns "true" as a result of condition test
    • go to triggers and setup a schedule - this will dictate how often NPrinting will attempt to send report

That's it.

btw. I suggest you also upgrade your NPrinitng installation and it is not supported anymore. NPrinting 17.0 is very old. I suggest you go for September 2020 version.

thanks
