How does Enterprise Licensing work?
- Automatically releases registered computers that have failed to communicate with our licensing server for 15 days.
- Provides a temporary 5% overage of the total number of allowed installations.
In other words, once a machine takes up a seat by registering to an Enterprise Licence, it will periodically ping Bluebeam’s Licensing Server to confirm that it is still active. If the machine fails to communicate with the server for a period of 15 days, it will automatically be released from the Licence key, freeing up the seat to be registered to another machine. The 5% overage, or cushion, allows for the lag time between re-imaging workstations or releasing inactive seats. If you exceed the overage allowance, an “exceeded Licences” warning will appear, and further installations will be restricted.
The benefit of Enterprise Licensing is that there’s no longer a need to manually uninstall or release seats from workstations that are being transferred, phased out or re-imaged, which ensures that your licenced seats are fully utilised. You can view or manage your Enterprise Licence at any time through our web portal, the Bluebeam Gateway.
What are the Administrator capabilities for Enterprise Licensing?
- Access to the Bluebeam Gateway
- Count active Revu users versus available seats
- Manage multiple seats through a single interface
- Invite additional Administrators to assist in managing active users
How do I know if I have used all my Licences? Is there a charge for going over?
As long as your total number of registered machines per edition does not exceed the total number of seats allowed for a period of more than 30 days, you won’t be further charged. If you are approaching or exceeding your limit, you can purchase additional seats or unregister licences from computers as needed. Any new seats purchased may take up to 24 hours to update and appear in the Gateway.
I logged in to the Bluebeam Gateway and I can’t find what I’m looking for.
We’ve recently consolidated individual Licences into single accounts tied to organisational domain names to provide a simpler and more customer-friendly experience. Please reference our support article for more information.
Why can’t I access the Bluebeam Gateway with my existing login information?
As we strive to provide a better customer experience, we’ve created Bluebeam ID, which allows users to seamlessly access multiple Bluebeam applications, including Bluebeam Gateway and Bluebeam Studio. To get you set up, we’ve sent out an email to the Gateway admin listed in our system to create a Bluebeam ID. Please remember to check your spam folder. If you can’t find the email or are still having trouble, please refer to our support article.
What is a Bluebeam ID (BBID)?
Bluebeam ID is the login that allows you to seamlessly access multiple Bluebeam applications, including Bluebeam Gateway, Bluebeam Studio and Bluebeam Drawings*. If you already have a Studio account, you can use the same email address and password for your Bluebeam ID. If you do not use Studio, you can use the email address associated with your existing Gateway account to create a Bluebeam ID.
