Stimulsoft ServerFlexible licensing model as important advantage from using the server.
Stimulsoft Server. Software Licensing Policy.Server licensing depends on the number of users. The user is a person who has a created account on the server, connects to it from a client, registered there as a user, and uses Stimulsoft Server for working with reports.
The reports and dashboards server is delivered with a minimum package for ten users. We mean that up to 10 users (including the administrator) can simultaneously be connected to the server and use a specific server installation.
If it is necessary to use our product for more users, then it is possible to change the current license on the license for a higher number of users. So the customer should pay the difference between the cost of the current license and the one he/she wants to upgrade.
Unauthorized UsersIn addition to Registered Users, the functionality of Stimulsoft Server can use users not authorized in the system – Unauthorized Users.
They can use the resources which are publicly shared. To share a resource, Registered Users should flag it as a Public Share (select Share in the context menu of the resource, then mark the item as a Public Share and copy the link to the resource). Not being able to login to the server, Unauthorized Users have access to resources by links.
Depending on the resource to which the access is allowed, possibilities of Unauthorized Users vary but, in general, they get a full set of functions for working with the resource. For example, if this is a Report item, then the user can view it in the viewer, export and print it. In the case of a PDF file, the functionality is limited by the system application for working with PDF. Excel files can be opened in the corresponding program.
No Royalties for Unauthorized UsersRegardless of the licensing type, access of Unauthorized Users to publicly shared resources is not limited. For example, having a license for 20 Registered Users, you have the opportunity to connect any number of unauthorized users.
There are no restrictions on the number of Unauthorized Users. The only limitation is the power of your computer system. It allows sharing resources and instantly providing access to reports by links. It is easy, fast, and convenient.
What is the Subscription Program?The Subscription program allows you to get the latest updates and new versions of the software. The Subscription program renewal costs 40% of the current full price of the license. The program allows you to get technical support.
License ValidityThe license is perpetual. The purchased product can be used as long as needed.
License DowngradeThis means decreasing the number of server users. If a customer has purchased a license for a certain amount of users but, for some reason, decided to reduce their number, then, the customer may downgrade the Subscription option and choose the option for a lesser amount of users. This procedure can be done no more than once per year.
