The license system was re-designed as follows:

  1. POS license is checked when logging into POS, the following rules apply.
    1. POS license is based on active stations. Station configuration flag is "POSStationLicence_Active"
    2. VMS license is based on active stations. Station configuration flags are "TaxIntegration_ESDC_Enabled, TaxIntegration_VSDC_Enabled"
    3. EFT license is based on active stations. Station configuration flag is "PCEFTPOSEnabled"
    4. Forecourt license is based on active stations. Station configuration flag is "ForecourtEnabled".
    5. Replication license is based on "server connections". Standalone replication will require 1 license per standalone setup.
  2. When opening Inventory or Purchasing screens in the back office, POS license is checked based on the rules in 1.above.
  3. Removed "Station Configuration" table from Replication. Therefore, changes to station configuration are not replicated.
  4. Added POS license validation on "Station Configuration" update in the POS-WEB and POS-Configuration screen. This will ensure that licenses cannot be exceeded.
  5. Named user validation remains the same for Helpdesk and FMS
  6. Recruitment, ESS and TNA users are not validated as these are part of HRM license. This is done as we have no control over the number of users accessing recruitment and ESS.
  7. Employee license is still applicable for HRM and Payroll.

User license active count for POS can be edited from the Station Configuration.

The document outlines how licensing work.
