Universal Dashboard – Simplified Licensing and Support

Dashboard Licensing

Universal Dashboard licensing has always been complicated to explain. The issue with server based licensing is that it’s hard to define what a server really is. In the world of function apps and containers it gets very blurry. Because of this, we are moving Universal Dashboard to instance, or dashboard-based, licensing. This means it doesn’t matter where you run your dashboard, it’s always the same price. Each instance of your dashboard (or REST API) will require a license. Each license contains the purchased number of instances so you only need to manage one license key.

To take advantage of the new licensing, you’ll need to be running at least Universal Dashboard 2.3.1.

Email Support

Starting today, you’ll also be able to purchase email support along with your license. If you’d like a more formal support package than just the community forums or GitHub, you can purchase this option to enjoy 24-hour response times for your issues directly from the developer.

You can select this option during check out.

Existing Licenses

You will be able to continue to use your existing UD license just as you would before. You can still run as many dashboards with it as you like.

Once your license expires and if you’d like to update to the new version, you will need to purchase a dashboard-based license. I’m happy to provide a discount for those doing so. Please contact me for details.
