Licensing

Oct 08, 2015

AppController requires you to purchase one of the following XenMobile App Edition licensing options:

  • User licensing. This option enables a dedicated user connection to a XenMobile App Edition virtual appliance. An assigned user receives access to XenMobile App Edition from an unlimited number of user devices.
  • Concurrent licensing. This option enables a single device to connect to any application or data by using a single instance of XenMobile App Edition. Through this option, multiple devices can share licenses. This option is recommended for occasional or anonymous use.

When you purchase a license, you also choose from the following two options:

  • Perpetual. This option enables user access to XenMobile App Edition on a perpetual basis. All Perpetual licenses include an initial 12-month membership in the Citrix Subscription Advantage program, which entitles you to receive future software version updates.
  • Annual. This option enables user access to XenMobile App Edition on an annual basis. The license is valid for 12 months from the purchase date. The agreement includes the right to receive App Controller updates for that period. To extend an Annual license, you must purchase and install a new license prior to the expiration of the current license. If you do not purchase a new license, when the license period expires, you might not be able to access App Controller.

After you install App Controller in the network, you are ready to obtain your license files from Citrix. You log on to the Citrix web site to access your available licenses and to generate a license file. When the license file is generated, download it to a computer. For more information about obtaining your license files, see Citrix Licensing System. When you download the license file, you need to select the Host ID as the Host ID type.
