As far as I know, the slurm is not able to work (communicate) with 
reprise license manager or any other license manager. Slurm just sums 
the used licenses according to the -L parameter of the jobs, and 
subtracts this sum from the total license count which given by using 
"sacctmgr add/modify resource", and the result is used as free license 
count. That's all. No more calculation, communication, testing, 
monitoring etc. with both license managers and jobs.

If you want to share a license with non-cluster users, you should check 
and update license using a script that detects global/free license count
