This document provides fundamentals of the licensing product policy and answers to frequently asked questions. The document is based on valid license agreements governing the use of 1C:Enterprise software and the current legislation.
The document is primarily addressed to users of 1C:Enterprise software supplied by 1C Company partners outside the following countries: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Ukraine.
The names of the applications (configurations) mentioned in the document are given as an example and do not imply that they are always available in a particular country (region) or 1C Company partner always has them.
For better and smoother platform scalability, 1C:Enterprise products fall into the following categories:
- Basic deliveries with a platform, an application (a configuration of 1C Company or its partner), and a single concurrent user license.
- Client licenses or additional concurrent user licenses.
- Licenses for 1C:Enterprise server (an application server).
- Bundles with multiple products listed above.
- Tailored products that extend the scope of 1C:Enterprise such as a web extension, products for mobile devices, and so on.
Such set of product groups makes it possible to increase the number of concurrent users and switch from a single-user mode to a multi-user mode in the file or client/server mode without the need to upgrade a purchased product.
1C:Enterprise client licenses authorize the user to work with any number of basic deliveries. To use new applications in the same workstations, it is enough to purchase a basic delivery with a new configuration. This ensures independent scalability for both application features and client seats.
1C:Enterprise software licensing is supported by software-based or hardware protection. A software delivery contains an envelope with software-based protection PINs or a dongle. 1C:Enterprise platform version 8.2.10 or later supports simultaneous use of both software and hardware licenses for the same infobase.
For 1C:Enterprise programming training, 1C:Enterprise training version has been released.
