Hi all,

I have following queries related to floating licenses.
1. Is DNG "Analyst" license floating/web-based? Can this be accessed from customer locations/different development location?

2. Is DNG users account based? Does this account need to be linked to corporate domain user account?

3. How does DOORS floating license work? Is this user based ? or multi user ? does this account need to be linked to corporate domain user account ?

4. Can DOORS be accessed from customer location/ different developer location?

Thank you in advance!!

[dmoul] Licenses for DOORS NG are managed on the Jazz Team Server and can be accessed over the network.

2. Is DNG users account based? Does this account need to be linked to corporate domain user account?

[dmoul] Licenses are consumed on a per-user basis. Most deployments use the enterprise LDAP identity store, providing one place to define users and a common mechanism for changing passwords.  It's possible to define users directly in the Jazz Team Server if you wish.

3. How does DOORS floating license work? Is this user based ? or multi user ? does this account need to be linked to corporate domain user account ?

[dmoul] DOORS uses Flexera licenses. "Authorized" licenses are tied to specific workstations. "Floating" licenses are managed on a license server and consumed on a per-user basis.

4. Can DOORS be accessed from customer location/ different developer location? 

[dmoul] Yes, if you are using floating licenses and the workstations can talk to the license server (and doors server) over the network.
