Windchill PDMLink: License Profiles
Product: Windchill PDMLink
In this release, the actions are added to license profiles to ensure that the users can use these actions based on their entitlement. This helps in maintaining consistency between the license definition and the capabilities provided to the licensed users.
Additional Details
An administrator can add users in the license profile groups to enable certain user interface actions based on the license that the users are entitled to. If an action is added to a particular license, and if the user is added to that license group, the corresponding user interface actions are available to that user. The following table contains the actions that are profiled and are mapped to their respective license profiles and standard profiles. These actions are used for controlling the visibility of the corresponding user interface actions.
The profiled actions related to Product Structure Explorer and Advanced Assembly Editor are no longer available in Windchill version
If an action is present under multiple licenses, then while tracking the license usage, that action will be reported for all the licenses that the user is entitled to.
