Workgroup Licensing

Steve Briand (411717) | asked Nov 07 '13, 6:14 p.m.
We are considering using Workgroup licenses in some situations and have a few questions regarding how it works with the various CLM products. The following link from the Infocenter provides some information, but does not appear to answer the following questions.

1) Can we have 110 licenses on a workgroup server (50 Dev, 5 Analyst, 5 Quality, 5 Practitioner)?

2) Can they all be used at the same time, or is there a 50 simultaneous user limit?

3) Can we add full-blown Developer, Analyst, Quality Professional, CLM, etc. licenses to the mix and use them simultaneously with no limit? 

I believe the answers to the above questions are "yes", but it's not completely clear in the Infocenter.

Steve, please read the item 1 and 2 from the page for your download e.g. waaaaaaaay down at the bottom of the page. It says

1 Try the Developer for Workgroups functionality by using the regular Developer trial and leaving the Distributed source code management setting turned off.

2 Mixing Developer for Workgroups licences with Developer, or Developer for IBM Enterprise Platform, licenses on the same server disables the Distributed Source Control and High Availability capabilities for all licenses on that server.�To obtain 24x7 IBM support for your Developer 10 Free licenses, you must first upgrade them by purchasing the Developer for Workgroups Starter Pack. Only one Developer for Workgroups Starter Pack can be installed for each Jazz license server.

So you can mix licenses. You can not have more than one Developer for Workgroup License Installed  on each server. The license switches off some entrprise capabilities,if you mix with enterprise Licenses.

Just to add to Ralph's answer.  Yes you can have 110 WG licenses  on the same server. (50 RTC Dev for WG, 5 RQM, 5 RRC and 50 CLM Practitioner for WG licenses),  You can actually squeeze out 10 more seats by adding ONE RTC Developer for Workgroups Starter Pack (10 RTC Dev for WG licenses in a bundle)  (for a total of 120).   Each WG license type is counted independently (even if they provide the same capabilities, like the Starter Pack (10 user limit) and RTC Developer for Workgroups (50 user limit). 

You can mix and match any WG license with any other license type - some enterprise features are turned off in a mix as Ralph mentions.   (like you can't have two separate RTC servers that are pushing RTC source code deliver operations across repositories which we call the "distributed SCM" feature. )
