Whitelist for permanent ticket users

Hi,
I'm wondering if it is possible to implement custom verifier for the license server that would allow or block floating license holders from obtaining permanent tickets?
Currently any user authorized to use floating ticket can obtain permanent one too.

Well, I see no way to differentiate whether incoming request is for regular floating or for permanent ticket?

It's true, but why do you need this at all? When floating license user grabs a parmanent ticket, the already issued ticket is simply "upgraded" to "permanent" status and no extra tickets are held.

Yes, but I would like to have control over that who can grab permanent ticket.
People in our company tend to grab permanent tickets even though they don't use it too often and this way they block tickets that could be used by other people. I would prefer to have a was of accepting requests for permanent tickets.

Unfortunately currently if permanent tickets are enabled, every authorized user can request a permanent license.
But you as administrator can forcibly revoke any issued permanent ticket.
We'll add an extention allowing to authorize permanent ticket requests

Great, that's what I would find very useful (I know how it works at the moment :) )
Do you have any time frame when it will be implemented?

Or even easier way to do it would be to disable/deny permanent ticket requests from IDEA and let the license server Administrator click (in server GUI) and select some of current floating ticket holders and promote them to "permanent".
