This section presents frequently asked questions about licensing changes in Engineer's Toolset v11.0.
Based on customer request, we added an Orion-based, Web interface for a selection of our most popular tools. This Web interface can be installed as a standalone product, or installed on an Orion platform and integrated with any Orion-based product. For example, NPM, SAM, NCM, NTA.
Engineer's Toolset is licensed for individual users, this new interface also requires a license addition. You will now see an additional Web Key for every Desktop license you own.
You now have the option to install a Web interface that requires a Web Key. When you install the Web interface, you can access our five most popular tools in a Web browser. This Web interface does not a replace your Desktop interface, but is an option to access your tools remotely on the Web.
This change does not affect your license renewals. Renew your maintenance in the same way as before. On renewal, Solarwinds provides two new keys instead of only one key.
The Web Interface is optional. You are not required to use the Web Key.
You can upgrade to v11.0, however, the only new feature in v. 11.0 is the Web Interface. There are no changes to the Desktop Interface. To ensure that you receive standard bug fixes included in the release, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to v11.0, even if you choose not to use the Web Interface.
Engineer's Toolset v10.x will continue to be supported. Please refer to the Customer Notification for details on End of Support Policy.
