A collection of licenses and clients. Licenses are permissions to use NI software. Every client in a given group has permission for each license in that group. You can use groups to define a set of clients that use the same set of software. Groups allow you to configure licenses and clients in various ways:

  • A single software license can be shared among multiple groups
  • A single group can include software from multiple media sets
  • A single client can be placed in multiple groups

In previous versions of NI VLM, administrators assigned permissions to clients on a one-to-one basis. To use groups to assign permissions, first create groups based on logical groupings of clients, such as Control Engineering Team or Test Engineering Team. Next, assign licenses to each group. Groups can contain more than one product license. Licenses can be shared among groups.

Creating Groups

Next, assign clients to your groups, depending on license model.

Assigning End Users

Your groups now contain both licenses and clients. You can continue to assign explicit licenses to clients, if necessary.
