After a successful patch of CPS22 from CPS2. I received emails saying that I had several participants that were disconnected from LDAP. I have read the article on how to search for disconnected participants and either delete them if they are no longer used or add them back into LDAP, but my question is do I need them?
I don't recognize these License users, can anyone provide some insight please?
Here is the list.
PTC Author License
PTC Bom Transformation License
PTC Contributor License
PTC EBOM Management License
PTC Ip protection license
PTC Manufacturing License
PTC Mechanical Design I License
PTC Mechanical Design II License
PTC Project Management License
PTC QUality License

that makes perfect sense, thanks for the clarification, I guess when it comes time in June for us to convert over to the new license model these groups will come into play.
Have you done the conversion yet?
No, and I have no intention of doing so unless forced by PTC. The subscription licenses are much more expensive over the long term, especially for those of us who already own perpetual licenses.
I agree with you. However, the plus side is you can increase OR decrease the number of licenses each year if you are on subscription.
True, once per year and with 90 days written notice (prior to your renewal date.) I guess if your business model is one where you see large fluctuations in employee count this might make sense. In a company with slow, steady growth this is not nearly as beneficial.
They are starting to phase out perpetual licenses though. They no longer sell the View-Print licenses. The only way I can get more is to buy the subscription based equivalent. I could be wrong, but I thought that Navigate runs off of subscription only, or at least that is the only pricing model that I have seen. It interests me, but the pricing model kind of kills it for me.
Navigate subscriptions are available with a "daily user license". They don't have to be locked to a named user. This can be cost effective for licensing a large group of occasional users with only a few licenses.
