Purchasing and Licenses FAQ
Yes. When starting a new instance, a minimum of 10 licenses have to be purchased (Requirements Management, Sofware Development, Quality Assurance & Test Management, or ALM). There’s no minimum when upgrading an existing license. Please contact us for a custom quote.
Different roles in a development team need access to different feature sets. The following list helps you match codeBeamer license types to user roles in your team. Please note that users with an ALM license have access to all the features of codeBeamer ALM across feature sets (ALM = RM + SWDEV + QA).

Purchasing a perpetual license means that after an initial upfront payment, you have the right to use codeBeamer ALM forever. The support fee, which starts from 20% of your license fee per year, is mandatory for the first year, and is not included in the price of perpetual licenses.
Renting codeBeamer ALM saves you the cashflow outlay upfront. It lets you use the software by continuing to pay the yearly rental fee. Support and maintenance is included in your annual fee.
Please keep in mind that perpetual and rental licensing models cannot be combined.
From a breakeven cost perspective, the perpetual license is a cost-effective solution if you plan to use codeBeamer ALM for at least four years.
With named licenses, each and every user needs to be named and granted a license. Floating licenses, on the other hand, allow a pool of users to share the total purchased number of floating licenses. As long as a floating license is available (e.g. the number of users currently logged in is lower than the number of floating licenses purchased), any user can access codeBeamer ALM. Many of our customers combine named and floating licenses.
You can also choose on-site licenses for unlimited use. This is generally recommended for large-scale deployments with over 300+ concurrent users.
Yes, it is possible to combine named and floating licenses. For instance, you can purchase named licenses for your developers, floating licenses for all your other teams, and an additional set of 10 Reviewer licenses for your customers. This ensures that all stakeholders have access to relevant lifecycle data at all times.
The default timeout period for a floating user session is 90 minutes. When you log out, your session will be immediately free for others.
Yes, you have the option to make adjustments regarding the ratio of named and floating licenses once within 180 days of sending the PO, with an “exchange rate” of 4 Named licenses = 1 Floating license.
Yes, you can use all codeBeamer licenses from any country, continent, time zone, and location.
Reviewer can use the Review Hub, browse, and comment on, or change the status of requirements. Reviewers can’t create or modify items. Only Moderators (holding an RM or ALM license) can start, e-sign, and complete a review process. Reviewer Hub licenses require the use of codeBeamer ALM version 8.2 or higher.
