Developer license

Developer license is a named license that is added on top of a core Pro or Enterprise license.

You can install or subscribe to ALM Octane Developer for your developer team members. Developer 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. Developer license capabilities depend on your core license edition.

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

Note: The Developer add-on replaces the previously available Team edition.

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. 

By default, your trial is Enterprise Edition, which allows one shared space. 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.
