User Licensing

User Licensing | The Full User | The Limited User | The Starter Pack

User Licensing

If a customer has more than three users accessing the application at the same time (concurrent users), it must acquire additional user licenses beyond the first three Full User licenses included with the Starter Pack.

Concurrent user licensing

Access to the Dynamics ERP solution functionality is licensed through user licenses on a concurrent user basis. Concurrent user licenses are based on the maximum number of users that may access the Microsoft Dynamics ERP solution simultaneously. Concurrent user licenses can be shared between multiple individuals with the limitation being the number of individuals that are able to access the ERP solution at the same time.

Unlike named user licenses, which are permanently assigned to an individual, concurrent user licenses are assigned temporarily to a user for the duration of their active session. Once that individual ends the active session, the license becomes available for use by another individual.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 contains two concurrent user “counters”— one for Full Users and another one for Limited Users—in order to keep track of how many users are concurrently logged in. When assigning security rights to users, the system administrator will designate the user as Full or Limited. When that user attempts to log in, they will automatically be routed through the appropriate counter based on their assigned user type. If the maximum number of licensed concurrent users has already been reached, the user will not be able to log in until someone logs out.

The Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 licensing model offers two user license types: Full User and Limited User.

The Full User

Full User licenses provide users full read and full write capabilities to all of the licensed solution functionality through any and all modes of access, including the Windows Client and the Web Client. Full User licenses are for users requiring unlimited read and write access. As long as the number of users needing simultaneous access to the solution does not exceed the number of Full User licenses you have acquired, these users are properly licensed for full read and write access to the complete solution functionality.

The Limited User

Limited User licenses provide users full read, but limited write, capabilities to all of the licensed solution functionality through any and all modes of access including the Windows Client. The Limited User license is designed to give customers a lower-cost alternative for extending ERP to users who only need to perform the following tasks:

  • “Read” access to data contained in the ERP solution through the Microsoft Windows client for Microsoft Dynamics GP and web client for Microsoft Dynamics GP
  • “Write” access via the time and expense functionality
