Licensing Explained

Automation Server requires licensing for the execution of your automated processes. You can chose between two Bizagi BPM Suite licensing models: User based (Perpetual) or Usage Based.



For the User based licensing you need a separate User License for each unique user in your production environment. A User license is not a software product; rather it is a license that gives an end user the right to participate in a running process and to access the services of Automation Server. The server itself does not require any license.


Usage Based Licenses are charged in a pay-for-what-you-use fashion, based on the Performance Level customers choose. That is to say, unlike the User based license, the Usage Based licenses does not charge per user in your production environment but it charges for the number of process running in your production environment.


Bizagi BPM Suite is composed of three products: Bizagi Modeler, Bizagi Studio and Automation Server.

Bizagi Modeler and Bizagi Studio can be used free of charge, and need no licensing.

Bizagi Studio supports a maximum of twenty (20) Users in development and testing environments.

Automation Server is the only product that requires the User licensing described above, to enable end users to participate in the automated business process.


For more information please read our End User License Agreement (EULA).  



Please bear in mind the following considerations:

Any change in hardware where an installation has been done will result in an inconsistency of the MAC. Therefore, you will need to move the licenses or contact our support team to perform the change.

It is advisable to contact our support team when activating an installation in an offline server to deliver an activated key.

When making a cluster installation, if you contact our support team, we will generate the keys for each separated node.
