    Automic no longer requires a license encrypted file be loaded into the Automic database. No worries about Automic stopping functionality - due to expired license. Automic subscription license model now is based on node count - SAP instance, Unix & Windows nodes, etc. Note that database counts are determined by how many database endpoints that a single database-agent hits against. This same counting methodology applies to WEB agent as well - the count is how many end-point WEB URL's are hit against (think CONN objects). This license model makes it easy to plan for expansion and to control usage as needed. Note that the counts apply to PROD & non-PROD environments (so for each client you maintain). Cost is the same for Prod and non-Prod. Happy Automating!!!

    Thanks, James. I have a question about the below statement.
    "the count is how many end-point WEB URLs are hit against (think CONN objects)".
    If the same WEB URLs endpoints are used in multiple clients in the same AE server, still considered one node, or is each client one node?  Can you please clarify? Because the same Unix/Windows agents can be used for multiple clients but are considered as only one node.

    Thanks,
    Prakash S

    If the same WEB URLs endpoints are used in multiple clients in the same AE server - each CONN object is counted regardless of its content. Note that telemetry is being reviewed and enhanced - and this counting methodology is subject to change in future releases.

    Thank you for informing the community about these new options. But in my opinion this is a rather vague statement and not enough information I can build my automic infrastructure plans on.
    Please let me know where I can find the licensing terms legally documented and especially for which version they are valid.

    With vague informations like this I rather plan without sql or rest agents.

    Thanks in advance,

    The SPD is available here:  Automic Automation AI Edition.

    Note:  The licence file requirement was removed from v12.2.2 (which is now OOS so hopefully you are all upgraded!)
    Ensure that your contract has been updated with the new AI Edition SKU, this probably happened at your renewal but some customers on longer contract terms may still be operating under the previous product codes.
