I am new to brocade switches. I have a simple question. How do I display which ports are licensed on my switch? Command line please.
I want the command that will show me something similar to the web version.
See attachment and highlighted area.

the simple "switchshow" command, show the switch and all the Port.
the Output show all enabled Online/Offline and disabled Port.
with "licenseshow" can you verify the installaed license.

Thanks for the response.
I know about these two commands. The problem is "switchshow" doesn't indicate which ports are licensed (looking for a field in the output that has the title licensed and idenifites each port like my attachment) and "licenseshow" give me a license, but that doesn't tell me much on what is licensed.
Area Port Media Speed State
0 0 id N4 Online E-Port
1 1 id N2 Online F-Port
2 2 id N2 Online F-Port
Maybe I need to ask my question differently. How do I know if the port is "not licensed" is there some indication?

F.Y.I. My question was answered, but I tried your command anyway and this is what I got.
licensePort failed : this command is not supported on this product.

Perhaps this command is applicable to certain switches
In my case:
20 ports are available in this switch
No POD licenses are installed
Dynamic POD method is in use
10 port assignments are provisioned for use in this switch:
10 port assignments are provisioned by the base switch license
* 5 port assignments are added if the first POD license is installed
* 5 more assignments are added if the second POD license is installed
10 ports are assigned to installed licenses:
10 ports are assigned to the base switch license
Ports assigned to the base switch license:
0, 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
Ports assigned to the first POD license:
Ports assigned to the second POD license:
Ports not assigned to a license:
2, 5, 6, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19
0 license reservations are still available for use by unassigned ports
