UiPath Community Edition usage

Hello,

Similar topics were opened, but I couldn’t find the exact answer to my question, so sorry in advance if I repost.
So my question is: If I work for a large company which falls under Enterprise licensing plan, am I allowed to use UiPath Community Edition to automate my own, individual work? Meaning that I would only use it for myself, to ease my workload and free me some work time… no mass application for whatever robot I’m creating, no duplication of robots outside my own machine.

Thank you for your answer.

Then ask your company if you can do it ?

Hello Luis and thank you for your answer.
I am aware of these terms and conditions and I have read them all before posting this.
However, it doesn’t say wether I am allowed or not to use Community Edition as in Individual working for a large company. It only says that my company can’t use it.
So I rephrase my question: As an employee of a large company, am I allowed to use Community Edition for my own personal (time) gain and not for my employer’s profit?

Well of course my company benefits indirectly from this, because I would have time to do other stuff if I automate part of my own work, but that’s another topic…

You just cant install it on the companies pc…

Dont belive so, but you can always try to make same protocol with your company :):slight_smile:

Hi

yes of course you can use Community Edition of uipath
–to get that edition
use https://platform.uipath.com
–where enter your common authentication like gmail id and its password and click enter which will take us to cloud platform
–where in the RESOURCE tab we can download the community edition

but we need to renew the community edition once in 12 weeks
for that

hope this would help you

Hello Palaniyappan and thank you for your answer.
I know that from a technical point of view it is possible to install and use UiPath Community Edition on my business pc.
But I would be interested to know an official UiPath point of view… if this type of usage is against in agreement or against their licensing policies. I don’t want to run robots and find out later that I used the software without license coverage, thus illegally. :frowning:

no no…
there is no illegallity in using community edition and is made for the commercial purpose only between small group of people for their daily automation purpose
may be you need to confirm once with your admin team while installing the application in your office premise, and that would be only thing we need to think off
else everything is fine buddy
