Checking License status

#1

Hi there,

I am having some issues with my unnatended license or at least i think it’s unattended…
When I check the license status through the CMD by writing
"path…/UiPath/Regutil.exe" get-info
I get the following image where it says

Can anyone tell me what does this 20 mean? Is this an attended or unattended license?

Thanks in advance

Hi Andres,

This means that you have a license for 20 Attended Robots.

Hi Ovi,

What does 20 Attended Robots mean? Does that mean I can execute 20 process
at the same time and install this license in 20 different machines?
Any information you could provide me with would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Hi again Andres,

So, you have this license file that for 20 Attended Robots. It means that when you upload this file in Orchestrator - License tab, you will be able to provision 20 Attended robots(in Robots page).

Let’s say you have 20 machines with Robots installed, but no license for these Robots. You upload the license file in Orchestrator, provision the Robots(as Attended) and connect your Robots to Orchestrator.

When you connect the Robot to Orchestrator, on the Robot machine, it will know that it’s license is Attended and will “act” accordingly. In your case, it means that in Orchestrator you cannot Start or Schedule a job on Attended Robots and can only be started manually from the Robot machine.

Note that license is per tenant.

More details on Attended Robots in the user guide:
Types of robots: https://robot.uipath.com/docs/introduction

Connecting Robots to Orchestrator: https://robot.uipath.com/docs/from-orchestrator-and-the-robot-settings-window

If i missed anything or something is unclear please let me know.

Sorry to bother you again Ovi,

Thank you very much for your quick response. It was of great help!
But a few new questions popped in my head from your response.
¿When you say per tenant, does that mean per user of a computer, per
company or per machine?
¿With the new version of UiPath, called UiPath Platform, the orchestrator
is included but it’s “useless” as long as you don’t purchase an unattended
license?

Thank you!

Don’t worry, Andres, no bothering here :slight_smile:

  1. When i say per tenant i refer to Orchestrator tenants, which allow to isolate data with only one instance. You can have one tenant for Finance and multiple users, another for Dev, again multiple users. That’s why licensing is per tenant: when you upload a license file on one tenant, you cannot “reuse” it on another tenant. It has nothing to do with the machine or company. Details here: https://orchestrator.uipath.com/docs/about-tenants

  2. Yes, you can install Orchestrator from the Windows installer. And i can understand why you would say it’s “useless”. And you are right from only one perspective: that you cannot Start/Schedule a job on Attended robots. But the Orchestrator is much more than just a web app to Schedule a robot to run at a certain time for example. You have Assets, Queues, Logs, Monitoring, Inter-connectivity.
