Description

License mode

Concurrent users: This mode allows you to create as many users as necessary. However, only defined number of users are authorized to use Talend Studio and / or Talend Administration Center simultaneously.

Named users: This mode allows you to create a limited number of users authorized to connect to Talend Studio and / or Talend Administration Center. This authorization is based on the user's login.

For the above two license modes, a user is not allowed to connect simultaneously to two instances of the Studio and/or the Administration Center, but the user can simultaneously access both.

Mixed license: This mode allows you to combine concurrent and named users. You get a maximum number of defined users and a maximum number of connected users. On the Users page, in the Count Policy field, you define for each user if it is a named or concurrent user.

Note: In case of a crash of the Studio or of the Administration Center, your connection will be retained when you restart the application.
