Licensing Guide Overview



Nintex Licensing Detail Further Explained


Non-production Licensing

Non-production licenses (development, testing, acceptance etc.) can be purchased at 50% of the production license cost.

• Software Assurance subscribers

Each production license covered by Software Assurance is granted one equivalent non-production license. These licenses are time-limited to coincide with the annual subscription period of the Software Assurance.

• Premium Support subscribers

Each production license covered by Premium Support is granted an unlimited* number of equivalent non-production licenses while the cover is in effect. These licenses are time-limited to coincide with the annual subscription period of the Premium Support. (* Fair use policy applies)


Disaster Recovery Systems

Licensing of fail-over servers and cluster based DR systems is determined according to the number of active instances that can occur simultaneously. For example, an active/passive or cold fail-over configuration does not require a separate license, while active/active or warm/hot fail-over configurations require every instance to be licensed.


Product Upgrades

When upgrading an existing license to a higher edition or eligible superseding product, the upgrade fee payable is the price difference calculated on current list prices, regardless of the original purchase price paid. When a current Software Assurance or Premium Support contract is in effect, the upgrade fee is calculated likewise and then prorated for the remaining contract period.
