Use Cases for License Management

 

One-man Office with Single Software Key
Recommendation: One person in charge of key management.
The user has a single GRAPHISOFT ID with Admin privileges. He/she uses this GRAPHISOFT ID to sign in to the License Manager Tool. Then the user can download or upload the license keys to/from the Company License Pool for the end user computer.
Small Company with Several Single Software Keys
Scenario 1
The company management and employees operate in an informal atmosphere in which all keys are available to all employees.
Recommendation: All users take part in key management, using a single GRAPHISOFT ID with Admin privileges.
All employees and managers use the same Admin GRAPHISOFT ID to sign in to the License Manager Tool. Then the users can download or upload any Software Keys to/from the Company License Pool for their computers. The Company License Pool shows the status of all of the Software Keys owned by the company.
Scenario 2
The company management does not want all employees to take part in Software Key management.
Recommendation: Two levels of GRAPHISOFT ID access: Admin (for the managers) and Member (each employee has his/her own GRAPHISOFT ID).
Using the Company License Pool, the Admin assigns these keys to particular users.
Employees use their GRAPHISOFT ID to sign in to the License Manager Tool. Then they can download or upload the available Software Keys to/from the Company License Pool for their computers.
Large Company with NET and Single Software Keys
In this scenario, the management does not want individual users to manage the NET key(s).
Recommendation: Two levels of GRAPHISOFT ID access: Admin (for the managers) and Member (each employee has his/her own GRAPHISOFT ID).
Programming and management of the NET Software Keys is carried out by the Admin.
In the Company License Pool, the NET key must be assigned to the Admin.
On the key server computer, the Admin uses the License Manager Tool to download the NET key from the License Pool.
Using the Company License Pool, the Admin assigns single Software Keys to particular users.
Employees use their GRAPHISOFT ID to sign in to the License Manager Tool. Then they can download or upload the available Software Keys to/from the Company License Pool for their computers.
