Connection Client

Can some one explain to me

Why is bentley forcing use to login with the connection client, threatening to disable license that we have already paid for

What is the benefit of this ?

We don't want or need cloud services



  • There are numerous reasons so sign and and use the Connection Client.  It is our means of communicating important information to our users like new version notifications, it's your access to log service requests, and when we eventually release CONNECT Licensing you will be able to control access to specific applications based on user entitlements which many have asked for. For more see the attached FAQ.
