Need more information on Licensing/T&C


#1

Hello Experitest Team,

I have downloaded Appium Studio Community version. This looks magnificent !!!
The license terms looks a bit confusing and I have couple of questions on this…

  1. What does upto 2* means in Android studio community version? Does it mean only 2 sessions, 2 runs?
  2. Can we use appium studio community version for billable projects??
  3. What is Offshoring Capabilities?

Hi,
Let me try put some light on the license terms:

  1. ‘upto 2’ means that you can have 2 users testing the same application. So if you work on a project that have up to 2 users you don’t need to worry about licensing. If you have 3 users testing the same application, you will need to work with the professional option.
    So 90% of the projects can work with the community edition freely.
  2. Yes, you can use appium studio community version for billable projects!
  3. ‘Offshore capabilities’ means that you can connect to Experitest public cloud (cloud.experitest.com) but you cannot work with onsite clouds.

I hope it answer your questions.
Looking forward to get your feedback.

Hi Guy, can I ask about ‘Offshore capabilities’

3.‘Offshore capabilities’ means that you can connect to Experitest public cloud (cloud.experitest.com) but you cannot work with onsite clouds.

We have SeeTest onsite cloud here - what version will work with that?

Hi,

Good day!

I have few questions related to licensing of Appium Studio.

  1. Appium studio Free 
    

–2 users testing the same application means, can i have another set of 2 users testing different applications?

  • does it in any way mean only 2 machines in the entire company can have appium studio.
  • in case i have my own framework using appium jars, can i use the framework in multiple machines
  1. Appium profession and enterprise cost is 100 and 300 dollars per machine. But it is also mentioned as 5 and unlimited respectively . What is ‘per machine’ and what is ‘5’ here.
    

Thanks in advance
Geetha

Hi! Forum Members,
Have a few questions on usage of the Appium Studio free Community Edition available online. Can someone please provide clarity on the below?

  1. Does community edition license allow us to connect two iOS devices on one machine and run automation test?
  2. Can we have multiple setups of the same, for e.g 2 users testing one application and 2 others testing other application?

Thanks!

Hi Leo

  1. Does community edition license allow us to connect two iOS devices on one machine and run automation test?

Yes. you can run them in parallel

  1. Can we have multiple setups of the same, for e.g 2 users testing one application and 2 others testing other application?

Yes. each app can be tested by two users


#12

If I connect 2 ios devices (some combo of simulator and physical) and they both participate in the same test (they are talking to one another), does this count as 2 users from a license perspective ?


#13

no, this will count as a single user working on two devices

you can have 2 users with the same configuration

@Tom
I am not able to find any information about Licensing/T&C for community Edition.

As,We are trying to evaluate different Mobile Automation Tools to provide automation services to our clients.
In the process, we have come across Appium Studio which can help us for our specific needs and would like to evaluate the same.

We have gone through the details of different plans available and could see that the community edition version is a free version for 2 users and would like to evaluate the same.

We had already dropped a mail regarding this on Support@experitest.com but they told us to post Appium Studio Questions here on this forum.

Can you please help us with the terms and conditions, if any for the free version so that we can take this up with our legal team before downloading the trial version.

Hi Harshit

The Community Edition supports a maximum of 2 concurrent users testing the same application

It allows you to connect to Experitest Public Cloud or connect your local devices

If your requirements are higher than the same, please contact sales@experitest.com for more details

Regards,

Tom

Hi Tom,

I recycle this thread.

We want to use more two computers (one for programming test and another to run them) with AppiumStudio in two different LAN’s. Is it possible?

Thanks!

Regards


#17

Hi Mateo,

Unfortunately, this is not allowed in the community edition terms, and considered as 4 concurrent users :frowning:

you can send an email to sales@experitest.com for more details

Thanks Tom, I should talk to them about this.

Regards.
