Trial license

When you first start using ALM Octane, you automatically receive a Trial license which gives you a 90-day trial for 100 users. 

A trial can be Team Edition or Enterprise Edition. By default, your trial is Enterprise Edition, which allows one shared space. If you want to start a trial with Team Edition, specify the Team trial type during the installation process. For details, see: the ALM Octane Installation Guide.

When starting a trial, keep the following in mind:

  • If you create a shared space in an Enterprise Edition trial and then install a license for Pro Edition, the sharing capabilities are no longer supported.

  • If you start an Enterprise Edition trial, you may not install a license for Team Edition later. This flow is not supported.

Developer license (on-premises)

Within an on-premises Enterprise or Pro Edition environment, you can install Developer licenses for your developer team members. Administrators can then assign Developer licenses to specific users according to their usage needs.

Dev users have access to the particular areas of ALM Octane that are relevant to developers, but not to the full set of ALM Octane functionality. 

For more information, see Developer license (on-premises).
