How do the tokens work?

  • Tokens that have been purchased by a customer become part of a token license pool.  
    • Each application in the token pool consumes a defined number of tokens when in use.
    • Total number of applications, and which specific applications, that can be checked out on top of the Base Application is limited by the number of tokens that the user has available.
    • When the customer exits NX, the token amount is released again, so that people can start-up other software options.
  • Token licensing can be combined and mixed with the traditional feature-based licensing schemes which also continue to exist. As described above third-party products will not be available under the token licensing scheme.
    • A customer must have purchased pre-requisite base seat license(s) on top of which the tokens can be enabled. 
      • Token licensing does NOT require Teamcenter or any other application beyond the basic license referred to here in order to function
    • If this is used with any other licensing, then the licensing system will use “non-token” licenses first before using tokens.  The strategy is always to maintain as many tokens as possible in the available pool
    • Based on the number of tokens purchased, people will be able to activate a number of software options.   
      • The system will allow any token enabled license to be used if there are sufficient tokens available.  
      • When the user exits the application, the tokens are returned to the pool.
