License comsumption with Eclipse

Charles Gordon (111) | asked Oct 06 '10, 2:01 p.m.
Does starting up a development environment (RSA, RAD, etc.) that has a connection configured to RAM consume a RAM license, even if RAM isn't used?

Thank you,

Probably yes. Just logging in doesn't use a floating license. If the
user was assigned a non-floating license then that is consumed on login.
If they are not assigned a non-floating then a floating license will be
used when it is required.

Typical use of a floating license would be to look at the details of an
asset. But the RAM Rich client automatically syncs up assets between the
client and the host upon login so a floating license will most likely be
consumed immediately because of this sync up. The sync up would require
downloading the asset details, which requires a license.
