Licensing - What actions are available for each User Type on the Xilinx Product Licensing Site?

Description

What actions are available for each user type on the Xilinx Product Licensing Site?

Solution

There are various user types for the Product Licensing Site: 

  • Customer Account Administrator
  • End User
  • Evaluation User
     
  • Customer Account Administrator: An example of a typical customer account administrator is a CAD tools manager.
    Every product entitlement account must have at least one customer account administrator.
    A customer account administrator can manage more than one product entitlement account.
    The responsibilities as the customer account administrator include:
     
    • Generating node-locked or floating licenses for Xilinx software and IP products
    • Seeing license generation activity for all the other members of the product entitlement account
    • Adding and removing users from the product entitlement account (as desired)
    • Assigning administrative and floating license privileges to other users (as desired)
    • Ordering product DVDs (if applicable)

    The original customer account administrator is the "Ship To" contact that is identified during the product ordering process.
    That person receives an email with instructions on how to download and license each of the products that were purchased.
    It is important that the customer account administrator follow the link in the email, as it ensures that you can obtain access to the purchased products.

  • End User with floating license privileges: Adding end users to a product entitlement account with floating license privileges allows an engineer or design team member the flexibility to manage and generate license keys on their own.
    The end user can generate license keys for node-locked and floating product entitlements within the account.
    The end user is also allowed to generate license keys for evaluation software and evaluation or no charge IP products.
    • Generating node-locked or floating licenses for Xilinx software and IP products.
    • Seeing license generation activity for all other members of the product entitlement account.
    • An end user with floating license privileges is not able to add or remove other users to or from the product entitlement account.
       
  • End User: Adding end users to a product entitlement account allows an engineer or design team member the flexibility to manage and generate license keys on their own.
    The end user can generate license keys for node-locked product entitlements within the account.
    An end user is also allowed to generate license keys for evaluation software and evaluation or no charge IP products.
    Some restrictions are placed on the role of the end user:
     
    • An end user is not able to generate floating license keys.
      Only customer account administrators and end users with floating license privileges can generate server based (floating) license keys.
      Product entitlements for floating licenses are not viewable by end users in an account.
    • An end user is not able to view the license keys generated by other users.
    • An end user is not able to add or remove other users to or from the product entitlement account.
       
  • Evaluation User: An evaluation user is someone who would like to test-drive Xilinx Design Tool products.
    Evaluation users can:
     
    • Generate a 30-day free evaluation license key for Xilinx Design Tools.
    • Generate a no charge WebPACK or Embedded Software Development Kit (SDK) license.
    • Generate license keys for evaluation and no charge IP products.
    • Request a Xilinx Design Tool DVD.
       

    Note: A customer who is already licensed for a full version of a Xilinx Design Tool product edition can test-drive other Xilinx Design Tool product editions or IP.
    These product entitlements are made available in the same product entitlement account.
    All user types can download products electronically and request a Xilinx Design Tool DVD.
