License Vault features

Here's an overview of License Vault key features.

Quick setup and effortless license distribution

License Vault requires very little time to set up and start distributing licenses. It also provides built-in tools to track license usage.

  • The cloud solution: License Vault Cloud is hosted by JetBrains. You can access it on any device with a network connection via any web browser.

  • Automatic license distribution: License Vault automatically assigns licenses to users. All a user needs to do is launch their product and provide the License Vault URL.

    Allocated licenses are automatically released after a period of inactivity. The length of this period depends on your usage plan.

  • Secure access with single sign-on: Signing in with JetBrains Account works out of the box. You can also set up another authentication module accepted within your company.

  • Real-time statistics: Analyze and optimize your license usage with usage statistics and reports.

  • Access rules: Configure rules to restrict or provide access to licenses for certain users or groups. Set up priority rules for users who need to be able to obtain a license, even when none are available.

Seamless scaling and usage optimization

The License Vault scaling options help your team work without interruptions while optimizing license usage and making billing easier.

  • Per-user licensing: If a user runs their product on two different computers simultaneously, only one license is required. The way each additional computer is handled depends on your usage plan and settings. With the Enterprise Floating plan, you can customize this behavior.

  • True-Up: use additional licenses and pay later. At peak usage times, automatically get additional licenses so your team can work without interruptions. Pay for them later.

  • True-Forward: streamline your billing. Easily transform additional True-Up licenses into regular subscriptions at the end of the billing period.

  • Floating mode: easily transfer licenses between users. If one of your team members stops using their product, the license becomes available for someone else within 20 minutes.

Refer to Usage Plans for additional information about these options.
