Codebeamer ALM offers few flexible license basis types for customers.  This includes two different licensing options.

Concurrent (Floating) Licenses

A Concurrent license (also known as a floating license) grants an organization a set number of ‘seats’, meaning a certain number of devices or users can access the software application and data at any given time.  For example, an organization that has 20 people in the US, 20 people in Europe and 20 people in Asia may opt to get 15 Concurrent Codebeamer licenses which will allow up to 15 people to be logged in at any one time.

Registered (Named) Licenses

Registered licenses (sometimes called named licenses) give an exact number of registered users the right to use a resource, e.g. a software or platform. This means that only a predefined number of selected users may access the resource. Named licenses are also known as single licenses or user licenses.  For example, an organization with 60 users that needs access to Codebeamer may buy 60 Registered licenses.
