Types of licenses

There are two types of Cycle licenses: node-locked and floating-strict (team).


A node-locked license is a non-transferrable license registered to one user on one machine for a specified number of days. Thus, multiple user accounts on the same machine will require multiple licenses.

Floating-strict (Team)

A floating-strict or team license is a transferrable license that can be used non-concurrently by any user. By default, floating license are issued for 8 hours but can be issued for "x" number of days as well.

Note: If a company's maximum license quota has been reached and a user requests a floating license, the user will be denied.
