As of the 1.5.3 release, Universal Dashboard licensing is changing a bit. Unlicensed dashboards will run up to one hour. No license required! You don’t even need to install a trial license. This should allow most people to avoid buying a license while developing a dashboard. Server licenses are available for purchase for 99.99 per server to allow the dashboard to run past the 1 hour time limit.
Server licenses are still perpetual and will receive upgrades for 1 year after purchase at which time a renewal license will need to be purchased. If you own a license for Universal Dashboard, you can still use it as a server license. There is no need to buy a new license. You will continue to receive free updates until it expires.
What do I need to do with my existing dashboards?
Nothing. If they are licensed, they will just continue to work.
What if I have a trial license installed?
Trial licenses are now ignored. Your dashboard will run for 1 hour.
What do you mean develop for free?
There is no need to install a license at all to develop a dashboard. You can create fully functional dashboards without installing any license. An unlicensed dashboard will run for 1 hour at which it will stop displaying the dashboard and will prompt for a license.
Where can I purchase a server license?
IronmanSoftware.com is now the store front for all licenses.
Do you offer site licenses?
