Licensing

License requirements

  • Identity Director uses Named User licenses. These are based on the number of active people in your environment: each active person requires one license.
  • People stated as inactive, marked for deletion or ready for deletion don't require a license. They don't qualify for any service and can't sign in to the Web Portal and the Clients.
  • Identity Director claims licenses from the Datastore to which an environment connects. This can also be an Ivanti Automation Datastore.

Evaluation licenses

  • You can buy production licenses at your reseller.
  • If necessary, contact [email protected] (for EMEA) or [email protected] (for US) to extend the evaluation period.
