How many licenses do we need for our development team? - Knowledgebase / Licensing questions - GemBox Support Center

How many licenses do we need for our development team?

The number of licenses is equal to the number of developers. For example, if four developers are working on an application that uses our component, you will need four 1-developer licenses. In other words one developer license is required for each and every developer working on any application which directly or indirectly references GemBox component.

Depending on how many developers will work on project that uses our component you can either purchase:

  • 1 Developer License for every developer
  • Small Team License Pack (up to 10 developers)
  • Large Team License Pack (up to 50 developers)

Note that you can also combine license packs for your requirements.

Licenses are not time-limited, also they are not per named developer, but rather per developer. We do understand that developers may change over time and that it wouldn't be practical to have to update licensing each time that occurs.

After purchasing developer licenses you get 18 months of free bug fixes and technical support. You also get a royalty-free deployment, there are no additional licenses for deployment, for production, for testing etc.

Are these dev licenses "named" or "floating" licenses?

Hi,

Developer licenses are per developer, not per named developer. We understand that members of a coding team may change over time and that it is not practical to have to update licensing each time that occurs.

I am a single developer producing multiple websites, each running under different domain names and running on different servers. Do I just need a single developer licence to use GemBox on each of my production sties? Do you issue a licence key per site or just one key that will work on all the sites?
Mario - GemBox
Hi,

Yes, you just need a single 1 Developer License.
Note that after the purchase you get royalty-free deployment (there are no server or OEM licenses) and you can use the same serial key on all your sites.

Hi,

Yes, you just need a single 1 Developer License (GemBox components are only licensed per developer).

If we have three developers, and 3 servers, how many licenses do we need?

Can we use 1 developer license, and then 2 trial licenses, or do we all need a paid license?
Mario - GemBox
Hi Calvin,

You can use Free, Trial or Time Limited Professional modes to evaluate the GemBox component.
But to use a Professional mode you'll need 3 developer licenses.

Hi,
I'm a single developer working on a project using Gembox Spreadsheet. The project is quite independent but include in a larger solution, on which several developers are working on. Do we need one licence or as many as we are devs? And other question, we have build factory, do we need licence for automated agents?

Florent
Mario - GemBox
Hi,

Yes, you would need a developer license for each developer that is working on that solution.

Also no, you do not need a license for automated agents. GemBox components are only licensed per developer, so your publishing or deployment agents or any kind of continues integration that you have does not require a license.

Hi,
I have a development team that work on multiple projects and changes in size depending on current workloads. For one of our projects, which requires GemBox.Document, the number of developers working on it has varied from 20 to currently 1 but this could go up again depending on other enhancements required in the future which are not related to the Documents module. So how many licences should I purchase?
Mario - GemBox
Hi,

You'll need to cover all the developers that are working on that project with a developer license.
So, currently because there is only 1 developer you'll need a single 1 Developer License.
However, when the number of developers on that project increases so will the number of required GemBox licenses.
