In a cloud environment, Automation Cloud is the license management authority for all UiPath products that are part of your platform.
You manage your licenses at the organization level.
Organization administrators assign user licenses for all organization accounts from Admin > Accounts & Groups, and they allocate service licenses to each tenant from the Admin > Tenants or Admin > Licenses > Robots & Services pages.
Automation Suite and standalone Orchestrator are on-premises solutions that include centralized license management capabilities.
You can acquire one license to distribute centrally from the host level, or license each organization or tenant separately, or you can also acquire standalone licenses for certain products.
In on-premises installations, license management is performed from:
- Automation Suite:
- host level: the Licenses page of the host portal (by a system administrator)
- organization level: the Admin > Licenses page of Automation Suite (by an organization administrator).
- Standalone Orchestrator: the License page of the host Management portal
This enables you to license multiple organizations using a single license code. A host license code aggregates multiple types of licenses, making it ideal for use at the host level and then distributing the included licenses downstream to organizations, tenants, and users.
Only a system administrator can manage this type of license. System administrators can activate the license from the Licenses page while license allocation is done from the Organizations page at the host level.
In this scenario, you have a license file for one Automation Suite organization or for one standalone Orchestrator tenant.
This type of license is activated at organization or tenant level, by an organization or system administrator, from:
- the Admin > Licenses page in Automation Suite. The organization administrator can then distribute licenses to each tenant within their organization.
- the Licenses page of the host Management portal in standalone Orchestrator.
This model only applies to Automation Suite.
You can choose to license only some of your organizations from the host level and let other organizations license themselves at the organization level.
This type of licensing allows using the respective product with a standalone license key that is not tracked or managed centrally from Automation Suite, Automation Cloud, or standalone Orchestrator.
Standalone licensing is only available for:
- You do not have a UiPath solution for centralized license management, such as Automation Suite, Automation Cloud, or standalone Orchestrator. When you acquired the products, you licensed them separately and want to continue to use standalone licensing.
- You have RPA developers who work with multiple Orchestrator instances that belong to and are licensed by different entities. Standalone licensing allows them to license their product locally and then use the Stand-alone license option in Orchestrator to prevent them from consuming licenses from the license pools of each of the various instances in which they work.
