Since Version 2018.1 the licensing is taken care by Orchestrator that means you do not need to individually license your studio/robots.
The licensing information will be fetched from Orchestrator and user will be able to run only those functionalities which are permitted by that type while provisioning the bot.
In case you do not see any available robots for development type please connect with sales team with your details and they will generate the new license code for you.
