General Licensing & Pricing

Non-commercial users can use our products free of charge. Please contact us if you need a license key for a non-commercial project.

Please check the following definitions to see, if you are eligible for a free license:

Non commercial uses of our products:

  • Academic usage in universities and schools for educational purposes
  • Certain open source developers can use our products free of charge within the scope of their open source project (please see below)
  • Purely private non commercial projects

The following class of open source projects does not qualify for a free license:

  • Open source projects that provide entry level features of an otherwise commercial product
  • Open source projects that implement important business processes of the editor

All other uses of our products are defined as commercial uses and therefore need a commercial license.

Sonargraph License Model

Sonargraph comes with different license types:

  • Flexible User License: License tickets are bound to a specific user on a specific machine for 30 days. After that the license can be used on another machine by another user. That is our classical license model. If you bought Sonargraph before version 9.0 you have flexible user licenses.
  • Floating License: Floating license tickets are only bound to an instance of Sonargraph while it is running. As soon as Sonargraph is terminated the license can be used by another user.
  • Executors: Sonargraph-Build now is only available with floating licenses. Each Sonargraph-Build license comes with two executors, i.e. two parallel executions of Sonargraph-Build. This way Sonargraph-Build fully supports distributed build environments. Ideally the number of Sonargraph-Build executors should be equal to the number of Jenkins executors. For example, if you have four Jenkins executors you should get two Sonargraph-Build licenses for a total of 4 executors.
  • Developer License: Like flexible user licenses with an expiration time of 1 day instead of 30 days. Only available for Sonargraph-Developer.

Most of our customers are using our internet based license server, so there is no need for you to operate your own license server as long as the machines running Sonargraph have access to the internet. If this is not the case or you want to avoid being dependent on the availability of hello2morrow's web-based license server you can download hello2morrow's local license server and run it on your premises. If you have a "flexible user license" it is also possible to run Sonargraph with file based licenses.
