Enabling Floating License

0 Votes
Currently a fixed number of license base needs to be subscribed even though users are not accessing the PPM instance regularly.
Idea is to come up with a floating license base (which can be selected by the Client depending upon the user base) which will reduce the license cost for clients and they will be more than happy to continue with MF PPM. Also, it might attract some new customers for MF.
Expectation is, once the user is trying to log in depending upon his access grants (or security group- if MF gives liberty to the corresponding AO Admin team, which might be more complex), dynamically licenses will be granted and once users logs out or the user session times out, the assigned license must be freed.

Note: Depending upon the concurrent user count every client must have ability to decide subscrib their license package.

Well, since we're already working on it I'll directly set this idea to "Accepted". 

It's tentatively planned to be released in next PPM version (late February release), but this feature turns out to be quite complicated to handle from a business perspective as you may imagine. For this reason it was delayed from the initial target release of 9.55, so there's always a chance that another delay might occur.
