Is there any impact to existing license if we add new company?
currently we have license for Acumatica and my understanding is license is attached to the server itself. If I want to add new company in the existing setup, will there be any problem to the license? Also will the new company inherit the license or we need to get license key for the new company? Thanks for your help in advance.
Assuming you are using version 2018 R1 or later, there is no impact on your license by creating new companies or branches. You are permitted to have an unlimited (theoretical) number of companies and/or branches.
If you are using a version prior to 2018 R1, then you are limited to the number of companies (tenants in version 2018 R1 and later) you are allowed to have. (from 1 to 10 by default. More can be purchased if needed)
Thanks for your reply. We are using version 5.3.14 and our licence still can hold 4 more companies (we have 6 companies existing in the license already) . I would like to know if i add a new company, will there be any impact to existing license? Also will the new company inherit the license automatically?
I can't remember what version this was introduced in, but this ACTIONS -> Change to Test Tenant option should allow you to turn what is now called Tenant (but called Company in your version) into Test Tenant/Company that doesn't count against your license and can only allow 2 Concurrent Users at a time.
