ProjectWise Connect Edition Licensing

We have been working with a number of clients using ProjectWise Client. We recently we told we needed to use Connect for a new Client. At the end of the install, it told me that our Bentley Hosted License did not contain any valid license for PW Connect Edition and as such, it would run in trial mode.

What has changed or what is it about PW licensing that I do not understand?

TIA

  • Hi caddcop

    Beginning with PW CONNECT Edition version 10.00.01.67, it will license under the V8i passport entitlement or the CONNECT Edition entitlement.  What version of PW Explorer are you using?  Can you provide a screen shot of the message?  Also, do you know if the PW Admin is requiring you to provide your own license or are you using thiers? That setting is not new to ProjectWise Design Integration, however more organizations are requiring their externals ot provide their own licenses. Below is from the PWCE Update 1 announcement on Bentley Communities: 

    New Licensing concept

    This release has a new license capability and it will accept Select entitlements (V8i passport) or a CSS entitlement (CE Visa).  So with that said this is the upgrade path for all existing users regardless of their contract however if they do not have a CSS entitlement then the Cloud services will be gated.   V8i Passport users will get all new maintenance and Application integration improvements
