License Management Overview
Brightidea offers several different licensing structures to fit your organizational needs.
Feel free to contact your Customer Success Manager to confirm your specific license structure and allocation, or if you have any questions regarding your purchased licenses.
Information on your specific Purchased, In Use, and Available license count can be found within the People Pillar of the application. This article outlines the types of roles that utilize a license and how to manage the user assignments for those roles.
Listed below are the Roles that are typically licensed within the system. If you have any questions specific to your Brightidea system please contact your Customer Success Manager for assistance.
Each Role provides different levels of permissions. Also, not all roles will count towards Licensing, such as Analysts and Evaluators. The following Roles are licensed roles and will count toward your purchased license total:
- Affiliate Sponsor
- System Administrator
- Community Administrator
- Pipeline Administrator
- Pipeline Moderator
- Idea Box Manager
- Idea Box IT System Manager
- Idea Box Pipeline Manager
For more detail on these Roles see the Role Descriptions article here
