Crowd 2.11 Release Notes
12 January 2017
Improved license counting
We've improved license counting so that duplicated usernames no longer consume more than one license.
This table shows some examples of the changes in the Crowd 2.11 license system. Generally, a consumed license is a unique username which can authenticate against one or more applications in Crowd.
|Configuration||Crowd version < 2.11 license count||Crowd version >= 2.11 license count|
License count: 1, but user1 cannot authenticate, because was seen inactive in directory1.
2, but in fact only user1 from directory1 is able to authenticate against application1.
1, but in fact user1 is unable to authenticate at all, because user1 from directory1 is not present in any of authorised groups.
License count: 14, this is caused by the previous method taking into account not only the username, but also the directory where the username comes from. The count is thus:
Dir1 - Bob, Jane
Dir1 - Bob, Jane
