    Tech License behavor.

    otto_damus

      I would like to know how the tech license behaves. By that I mean if you have a license for 100 people does this mean that your application can only hold 100 tech accounts? Or is it more of a floating privilege where you can have more that 100 techs in an environment but only 100 logged in at the same time? I was unable to find any documentation on this subject.

          You are correct..."floating privilege where you can have more than 100 techs in an environment but only 100 logged in at the same time."

            WHD is typically licensed on an  "active named Tech" basis.   e.g. if you had a license for 2 Techs, those could be:

                JOHN DOE

                MARY SUE

            Technically you could have a 3rd named Tech in the system but only 2 of the 3 could be "Active" at any given time, like this:

                 JOHN DOE   (active)

                 MARY SUE   (active)

                BOB ARCTOR  (inactive)

             

            In the scenario above where you have John, Mary, and Bob - if you wanted Bob to be able to log in as a Tech, you would need to go into the system and mark John or Mary as inactive, then mark Bob as active.

             

             

            To make it slightly more confusing - there is an option for concurrent licensing (where, for example, i could have 100 active Techs but only 20 of them can be logged in at the same time).

            That type of concurrent license is VERY rare, however.  99% of WHD customers would not have a concurrent license...so you would probably already know it if you had one.
