With Subscription Licensing, customers subscribe to the rights to use Microsoft software and services instead of owning them. Solution Functionality and User Access are licensed through three Subscriber Access Licenses (SALs):
• Standard User:
SAL is a required SAL that entitles the licensed user to perform Full User tasks across the ERP Solution using all of the functionality included in the Starter Pack. Every Full User requires a Standard User SAL. The Standard User SAL grants all licensed users the right to use the functionality contained in the Starter Pack.
• Extended User:
Additive SAL is an optional functionality license type, additive to the Standard SAL, which expands the rights of all licensed users to perform tasks using all of the functionality in the Extended Pack. The Extended Use Additive SAL grants all licensed users the right to use the functionality contained in the Extended Pack as long as every Full User licensed with a Standard User SAL is also licensed with an Extended Use Additive SAL.
• Limited User:
SAL is an optional access license type that entitles the licensed user to perform Limited User tasks across the ERP Solution using the same functionality footprint available to the Full Users. Every Limited User requires a Limited User SAL.
Choosing the Appropriate SAL Type
To choose the appropriate SAL type, determine the functionality you require for the ERP solution. If you require only the functionality included in the Starter Pack, then license Standard User SALs (or a combination of Standard User SALs and Limited Use SALs). If you also require the functionality of the Extended Pack, then license Extended Use Additive SALs for all Standard User SALs. Note: You must license Extended Use Additive SALs in the same quantity as Standard User SALs.
Subscription Licensing Term
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 is licensed on a monthly basis, giving you the flexibility to adapt your SAL counts from one month to the next as required by your changing business trends. When adding SALs, the cost of the license will be pro-rated based upon the time remaining in the current month’s term (based on a standardized 30 day month). So, for example, if there are 10 days left until the end of the term, you will pay the monthly charge divided by 30 times 10. When removing SALs, the reduced SAL count takes effect at the start of the subsequent monthly term. The only commitment for Subscription Licensing is a full month term so, except for having to let your subscription run its course until the end of the current term, you can cancel at any time without any penalties.
