Virtual Machine Runtime and Licensing Consumption

Hi Everyone!

Apologies for the novice question about licensing although from searching online; I cannot get a clear understanding of licensing and the consumption of licenses in UiPath. Scenario below:-

If I have five Virtual Machines and 5 Active Directory (AD) Accounts and wanted to map each user to the virtual machine to allow every account to log into each VM and execute a process. i.e.

robot1 = domain/user1; domain/user2; domain/user3; domain user/4; domain user/5
robot2 = domain/user1; domain/user2; domain/user3; domain user/4; domain user/5
robot3 = domain/user1; domain/user2; domain/user3; domain user/4; domain user/5
robot4 = domain/user1; domain/user2; domain/user3; domain user/4; domain user/5
robot5 = domain/user1; domain/user2; domain/user3; domain user/4; domain user/5

What would the licensing consumption look like? I thought it would be a license per VM although I am now thinking that because I have 5 VM’s & 5 AD accounts; the license consumption would be 25.

Any information on the above, would be much appreciated. Or if you need more detail let me know.

Thanks Everyone!

This might be usefull for you: https://academy.uipath.com/learn/course/external/view/elearning/583/UiPathLicensingTraining. In the end you will see a license matrix and you can decide from there which license should suit you.

Do you want to use orchestrator?
What type of robots do you need? Unattended / Attended?

Worst case scenario? 25 accounts connected simultanously, or could it be that a user is only connected on 1 account and 1 machine, instead of all of them?

Hi @DJC
No actually its not , you machine combination is 25 (5*5)
Its means that you setup every bot can be perform from any machine by using ad account

But even you setup more robots will not run more than the license count of your robots

So I guess if you have 5 robots , your licences count is 5
Then you cannot run more than 5 robot at a time
But you can design to run any 5 bots using any machine
