Group licence launched

The solution for teams sharing eaDocX

eaDocX Group Licences (GL) are the new way to manage how your teams produce their Enterprise Architect documents.

Flexible, simple to manage and easy to use.

The GL has been designed for larger organisations with distributed teams and team members who all need access to the common software, but for whom the traditional licencing options are not suitable.

Until now, eaDocX licences have been either:

  • single user, machine-specific licence keys, or
  • multi-user, floating licence keys that require users to always have access to a shared server,

In large organisations, each of these can present challenges:

  • If each user has a separate single-user key, who will administer the keys? Who will buy additional keys as new users want to use eaDocX, and will that be a barrier?
  • If you use floating licences, what happens when the network changes and users can’t ‘see’ the licence server to get a key? They also have the problem of who buys additional keys.

For these users, the eaDocX GroupLicence (GL) provides a great alternative.


Having flexibility in the number of users who can share the software reduces your need to precisely forecast your group use of eaDocX. So the GL accommodates changing patterns of use:

  • if you are rolling out the software and are unsure of how quickly you will get to full deployment
  • or if there is a company reorganization and an unexpected change in team size or use happens.

The Group Licence can flex with your needs.

Simple to manage

  • As the GL is not dependent on a shared server to manage licenses, it makes it simpler for IT support teams to implement.
  • Your eaDocX GL works independent of network changes and supports staff who may work both on-site and remotely at other clients.
  • There is no need to manage a register of keys.
  • And eaDocX support and maintenance are channeled through specific users, defined by you, to ensure quality and consistency of experience.

Easy to Use

  • No need to be connected to the company network.
  • No need to wait for a licence to become available.
  • Users just load eaDocX onto their machines, enter a single key, and start work.
