Hi folks,
I am very new to this forum (and Progress) and have got some licensingquestions concerning Openedge 11/12.

Am I right for this in "progresstalk.com" ?

Cheers!

Hi,
is it still possible to use concurrent user licensing in Openedge 11/12, or will I have to use reg. client / reg. user?

Thank you!

Concurrent licenses still exist but they are usually more expensive than the other options

My understanding is that purchasing Concurrent users is only available to clients who already have Concurrent User licenses, not for new sales.

In addition to Registered User, you also have the option of Named User. Note that this depends on the product and in some cases on the type of user (Standard, Occasional, or Unknown) that is being licensed. Not all license models are available with all products or in all situations.

Good morning,
thank you very much for your answers. So, I will not be able to buy concurrent users, if I am running on reg. clients at the moment.

So, if I "buy" a new contract, then there also will be reg client or named user.

Officially they have been saying that concurrent is unavailable for quite a while. But like most things it is probably negotiable. Especially if the sales guy sees that there is a significant commission involved.

Core based licensing is also available.

For me it depends on the product I buy and who is using it (the user definitions).

If a person is using an OpenEdge application to perform their job function they are classified as a Standard User. In this case I buy licenses on the Named User model, though Registered User (formerly Registered Device) is also an option. If such a person uses an application less than two hours a week, they are classified as an Occasional User. Though I don't deal with those so I don't remember the licensing implications offhand.

If the user does not have an OpenEdge installation, say, they're the end user of my client's web app, they are classified as an Unknown User. For those products (App Server or PASOE) we buy them on the Access Agent model.
