It appears when external users from other organizations are working in our hosted projectwise environment, they are consuming product licenses from our tenant even though they have their own licenses through their own tenant. Is there a way to prevent them from consuming these licenses from our tenant?
Thanks for your help,
Thanks for contacting Bentley Systems! If ProjectWise Explorer for the external users are activated with their own SELECT Server Site Activation key, it is required to just change the User's profile settings on that datasource from ProjectWise Administrator to select the option to "Activate and record usage through client's configured SELECT Server". Please find below documentation explaining the steps -
As of version 10.00.03.434, that option is gone.

The "old" version is also in the current help - was this section removed in PW Admin removed intentionally?

Please be informed that there has been a new SES licensing system introduced to ProjectWise replacing the legacy SELECT Server Licensing. Please refer below documentation for more information about the same- https://communities.bentley.com/products/projectwise/content_management/b/weblog/posts/introduction-to-ses-for-projectwise-design-integrationThank you
Yeah, basically for SES licensing you handle this differently so they pulled the checkboxes from the admin interface. If you have an older Projectwise I wouldn't use 434 Admin to administer it.
you can also set this setting with powershell as a workaround if you really need the 434 Admin.
