WebConfig - Group Entitlements

Managing the definition of a License Entitlement is performed using the 'Add Group License Entitlement' / 'Edit Group License Entitlement' dialogs, which will be shown when either the Add or Edit buttons are selected on the Add / Edit Floating License Group page.

License Entitlements grants users of the current group the ability to 'check-out' floating licenses for the defined Product and License Type combination.

The 'Add Group License Entitlement' dialog is shown below. The 'Edit Group License Entitlement' dialog provides the same options, however the relevant existing values will be selected.

Note, you can only define one entitlement for each Product / Type (Academic or Full) combination.

E.g. You can add one 'Professional - Full' license entitlement and one 'Professional - Academic' license entitlement.

Add / Edit Group License Entitlement

The following options are available for each Group Entitlement.

Product

The name of product (Enterprise Architect edition or plugin) that this entitlement gives access to for users of the current group.

Academic

Determines if the current entitlement implies that academic licenses of the selected product are allowed for the current group.

Limit

A optional numeric value representing the maximum of con-current users of the current group that can check-out License keys for the defined Product/License Type.

The default is an empty value and represents that the definition imposes no limit to the number of license that can be checked out by the current group.

This option if particularly useful if departments within a single company purchase their own floating licenses, groups can be setup for each department and a limit applied to restrict the group to the number of licenses that their department purchased.
