Can you plz clarify on my queries on AX 2012 licensing:
1. If I buy a license like 10 functional users and 10 Enterprise users then can I assign these to 25 users2. Task User roles are very minimal and not at all good. Some are hardly used in any organization3. Can we assigned multiple roles to one named user ? if yes then how many license it will utilize.4. For example: apart from the users who would be using the AX , I have another 20 employees for whom self service users am abt to purchase. If I buy 10 self service named CALs, will my 20 employees can use (though not at same time)5. For the customized form and functionalities do we need to have a Enterprise user or can we use functional users. Ex: Maintenance is new module which we are creating..and there are no roles predefined. Can we assign it to a new task user role?
You don't need any special license, nevertheless users accessing AX through EP still need a CAL.
Thanks for the reply Martin, just one more doubt, this means that if a User has an AX 2012 license as say an enterprise User CAL/ functional User CAL, then they can access and configure EP, and there is no need to buy a separate license for EP?
It's exactly the same as in the normal AX client - a user needs a CAL license appropriate for features he has access to. For example, CustomerList web menu item requires Functional CAL, therefore all users using that must have either Functional or Enterprise CAL.
The license allows users to use AX functionality, regardless how exactly they access it.
There is nothing like an EP license in AX2012, just Server and Client Access Licenses (User/Device). However, you still may need a license for related software (e.g. SharePoint).
If I login with 20 Task User License and the organization has only 18 task user license.Will I get any error when the 19th and 20th user logs in AX.
As far as I know, you don't get any message. And you would violate the license agreement from the moment when you assigned more licenses than you own; whether users log in in the same time is not important.
I just checked with the logins .
What would be the effects of violation?It should actually not allow the user to login.
I can check a report on named user license counts,Can you suggest any report on violation.
Hi Mr. Martin;
Hope you dont mind asking this question here; how will i re-assigned the license to another user?
we have two (2) enterprise users that left the organization a month ago and disable these users account on domain and AX 2012 (CU6) i will add new users on the same field/role, just replacing the two user with another. but the named lic count increased after i add the 2 new users.
I highly appreciate if you could help me or answer me on this.
Thanks a lot in advance...
What exactly did you do with the old users? You kept them in AX without any roles?
Another solution is analyzing the data used by the report.
Out of curiosity how frequently should a company using AX run the named user license count report please?
It's already answered above. You won't get any error, but you'll be violating your license agreement, which may have legal consequences.
