How does concurrent licensing work within Yellowfin?

Concurrent licensing just defines how many users can be logged into the Yellowfin system at one time, using the SAME user role. E.g. 3 writers can be logged in at one time.

When we create the licence, we allocate the number of Readers/Writers that will be allowed to use Yellowfin. You can have as many Readers/Writers you want, as long as your licence permits this.

There are 3 Concurrency modes for a licence:

  • DISABLED - No concurrency is applied
  • ALL - Concurrency affects all users
  • READERS ONLY - Concurrency affects only users flagged as a 'reader'. This will not effect writers or admin users
  • NAMED - Concurrency affects all users, but users flagged as a 'named', are not counted towards the number of concurrent users (they can always log in)

Note:
Technically there are only 2 types of users in Yellowfin. Readers & Writers. An admin user is just a writer account with more permissions.
