info Notes

  • All editions are fully compatible. Additional functionality is enabled through license keys, so that upgrades to other editions require no downtime or additional software deployment.
  • During the evaluation period, you can simply switch between editions (at Setup > Licensing > Properties). You can also switch if you have extended your evaluation period by importing evaluation licences, or if you have NFR licenses (RES Software partners only).
  • If you use an edition other than Enterprise, unavailable features are masked in the Management Console by a brief description of that feature. To hide unavailable sections altogether, go to Help in the menu item and clear Show all features. Alternatively, select Do not show these messages again in one of the masked nodes. To include unavailable features in the view, select Show all features again (in the Help menu item).
