About licensing

This article describes UiPath's licensing plans to help you understand how UiPath licenses its software. You can think of a license as an agreement between you and UiPath, authorizing you to use a certain set of functional capabilities in UiPath software.

📘

Commercial model

Our commercial offering provides a flexible variety of licensing SKUs for how to deploy and use UiPath software.
See the UiPath Licensing page for the current list of available SKUs. For Automation Cloud, the applicable SKUs are on the Flex Plan and Cloud Plan tabs.

 

Licensing plans


UiPath provides three licensing plans to match your automation needs and budget.

Community

A free plan intended for individual RPA developers, small teams, and companies that are compliant with our Terms & Conditions.

This is the default plan for new Automation Cloud accounts. It gives instant access to several licenses and services. This plan offers free support through our forum.

This plan includes a set number of licenses and you can't request additional licenses. If you need more licenses, you must upgrade to the Enterprise Trial or Enterprise plan.

Enterprise Trial

A free plan intended for evaluation purposes. It allows customers to check the platform's extended capabilities provided by an Enterprise plan. Recommended for customers wanting to experiment with more robotic power and premium services. The evaluation period is limited to 60 days.

Upgrading from Community to Enterprise Trial gives you access to additional licenses and premium services. This plan offers ticketed SLA support.

When the Enterprise Trial expires, your account defaults back to Community. Contact us if you wish to upgrade your plan to Enterprise during the 60-days trial period or if you require a Trial extension until your upgrade to Enterprise is completed.

Upon defaulting back to the Community plan, make sure to adjust the number of allocated licenses and services to fit within the limits imposed by Community. If you’ve allocated more licenses than the number of licenses corresponding to the Community plan, then your tenants are disabled, and the licenses are removed from the associated services.

Requesting an Enterprise Trial

  1. Log in to Automation Cloud as an organization administrator.
  2. Go to Admin > Licenses and, in the top right corner of the page, click Request Enterprise Trial.
    The Upgrade to UiPath Automation Cloud for Enterprise dialog opens.
  3. Fill in the form with your business details.
    These details are used by our sales representatives to contact you before the trial period expires regarding your potential upgrade to the Enterprise plan.
  4. Click Request to complete the request and close the dialog.

Back on the Licenses page, next to the page title, the license plan changes from Community to Enterprise Trial.

Enterprise

The Enterprise plan allows you to tailor your licenses count according to your specific needs. You can purchase as many licenses of each type as you want, anytime you need them, by contacting our Sales department.

This plan offers ticketed SLA support.

UiPath maintains separate cloud deployments for Community and Enterprise. See Data residency for more information.

Upgrading to Enterprise

There are several ways to purchase licenses and upgrade to the Enterprise licensing plan:

  • Buy a starter license plan, which includes predefined license quantities, thought out for the most common automation needs.
    This is a self-service option that lets you upgrade in a matter of minutes.

  • Contact Sales to negotiate a custom license mix for your Enterprise plan.
    You must provide your Support ID for the request.

Note:

If a user has multiple user licenses allocated, they use the most inclusive license. For example, when an Automation Developer license is allocated, it is always the one that is used, no matter what other user licenses they have.

The most inclusive user license is Automation Developer, followed by RPA Developer, then Citizen Developer, and lastly the Attended license.

License expiration


When your Enterprise or Enterprise Trial license expires, your licensing plan automatically changes to Community.

Downgrade to Community

Following license expiration, you are automatically downgraded to a community licensing plan and the following changes take place in your organization:

  • If you had more than one tenant, all tenants and their services are disabled.
    You must enable one tenant to use and you cannot enable the other ones. See Enabling tenants for instructions.
  • Your license quantities are reduced to those for the Community plan and so a license overallocation message is displayed.
    You need to adjust the user and service licenses that you have allocated to only use what is available.
