In an upcoming release, we will improve how we display our licensing in the UiPath Portal as part of Automation Cloud™. We are not changing how you buy, what you are entitled to, or the terms and conditions of the licensing with this redesign. The new format will just more clearly reflect current licensing in the Portal to help our enterprise customers, but because it will look a bit different for everyone we wanted to let you know in advance.
What will change?
- There will now be just 2 sections in the Licensing tab: Users and Robots & Services
- You will see the official SKU name for each product you own, license count, and also a description
- We’ve also added a view that show your allocated/unallocated licenses for each SKU on these tabs
- The licensing page in Orchestrator will be similarly updated
Do I need to take any action?
No. We’re just making sure the new layout isn’t a surprise (and that you know nothing about your licensing rights changes as a result).
Why is this better?
This layout makes it easier for our enterprise customers to:
- See a description of each SKU available in your license plan and what products it includes, to take full advantage of the capabilities bundled in each SKU’s
- See how many licenses are allocated to services and how many are still available, in the same place as the other licensing information
- Immediately see the SKU’s purchased and reconcile them with quotes/invoices if you are an Enterprise customer
What’s the difference between a SKU and a product?
As part of the licensing simplification released with the April 2020 FTS launch , we created role-based SKU offers that include multiple products, to help our customers scale more easily. You can get a full list and more details right here. With this release, the Portal licensing tab will reflect the official SKU names, and the descriptions will detail the products in each SKU you have licensed.
For example, the RPA developer SKU includes several products: Studio, StudioX, Attended Robot and Task Capture. If you have purchased RPA developer SKU’s, you’ll now see that reflected in the licensing tab – with a description of all the components of the SKU you have. Again, this portal change does not alter your licensing rights, it just makes it easier to see the SKU’s you own and know what products you have available to use as a result.
We hope you find these changes deliver an easier and more informative format. Thank you for being a UiPath customer!
