The following information relates to system administration that is specific to the use of Blue Prism® Desktop product.

Blue Prism Desktop licenses

Unlike Blue Prism Enterprise licenses, the use of which is determined by the number of concurrent sessions, Blue Prism Desktop licenses are associated with the number of registered Desktop runtime resources.

When a user logs into the Blue Prism Desktop client for the first time, their machine is registered as a Desktop runtime resource and a Desktop license is associated with that machine. If another user logs onto that machine, they will share the same Blue Prism Desktop license.

To remove a license from a machine and make it available for another machine, the Desktop system administrator will need to retire the Desktop runtime resource, see Resource management for details. Subsequent login attempts on that machine will fail until the resource is unretired.

Blue Prism Desktop license in System - License

In Blue Prism Desktop 1.0, you cannot apply a Desktop license and a Blue Prism Enterprise license to a single environment. Blue Prism Desktop requires its own, separate environment to function correctly.
