Quality Module Licenses
How does Agile know who is taking up a Quality Module (PQM) license? We apparently have a set number defined a long time ago but it looks like we technically can go over that number but still want to bring it down to what we’ve paid for.
But we’re unsure of how Agile defines it. Is it people with Discovery access? If someone has Read-Only to CAPAs are they taking up a license? Quality lists and Searches on the User page?
As Steve mentioned, no-one outside of Oracle knows how the script works (and most within don’t either). I have never seen it, and I don’t even know of someone who had it executed on their system. But it *is* a big stick, as penalties are severe.
As I understand it, simply being able to discover and read things does not constitute usage of a license. Creating, managing and processing PSRs and QCRs through a workflow does constitute usage of a license. Then again, that is just my assumption based on how things were done long ago.
Since we have no idea how the script works, you might send a question into Support (or if you are friendly with a saleperson, ask them), but I doubt you would get an answer.
