KNOWLEDGE BASE

Cascading sequences for Network Licensed Autodesk Products.


Autodesk offers an option of networked /multi-user licenses to provide a high degree of flexibility. This allows multiple copies of software to be installed on more computers than there are staff members – users then start the software and are assigned a license from the pool of software that you own.

Cascading allocates licenses (or features in licensing terminology)  in a predesignated order. This means that if you owned Autocad and a Suite (which also contains Autocad) for example and a user opens the software on their PC, LMTools will grab Autocad first before it grabs the Suite. When this license is used, it will then grab the Suite as this is the only license left in the pool.

Please note that Industry Collections are always chosen first in a cascading scenario.

The following order is used by cascade licensing for 2017 products:
