This section provides an overview of Edge Licenses.

Edge License Type Catalog

Partner Superusers, Partner Standard Administrators, Partner Business Specialist, and Partner Customer Support can assign license types to Enterprise customers from a catalog of 270 license types. These users will get access to the catalog of 270 license types automatically during a VCO installation or when upgrading to the 3.3 release. These license types will be displayed in the Edge Licensing screen. To use the Edge License feature, the above-mentioned users must enable the Edge License system property.

Considerations for Assigning Edge License Types

Note: Assigning a license type to an Edge does NOT change or limit the functionality of the Edge in anyway. The Edge License feature does NOT enforce license types on to the Edge, but merely introduces the ability to attach license types. The intent is to ensure license types can be attached to Edges and can be reported when necessary.

When assigning Edge License Types, consider the following issues:

Issue Considerations
Mixing License Types
  • Standard License Type: No mixing of license types
  • Enterprise License Type: Can mix with the Premium license type
