UiPath licensing strategy provides customers a coherent and comprehensive end-to-end automation platform. To provide customers even more flexibility and support customers’ automation journey, we recently introduced a new universal pricing model that allows for workload migration between on-premises and cloud with a single pricing without the complexity of different licensing models. Learn more.

This licensing policy regulates the license granted and specific restrictions applicable to the current UiPath Platform version, and is read together with the licensing agreement between UiPath and the Customer on UiPath’s Trust Portal. Except as otherwise provided under the below plans, the SKUs are available on a term-based subscription. Other metrics (user type, consumption, etc.) may apply, as prescribed below.

Legacy versions of this policy for previous releases have been Archived.

Product Definitions

License Definitions

Capitalized terms used but not defined in this policy will have the meaning assigned to them in the licensing agreement.

AI Units Metrics that is used by all AI Center AI/ML solutions -- including 1st Party AI models like Document Understanding, Task Mining, Out of the Box ML Models, and 3rd party and customer’s Bring Your Own Models. These AI Units are applicable for both cloud and on-premises-based deployments (compute resources used will consume additional AI Units).

Attended Robots Allows the execution of workflows as a direct result of a human action and under human supervision. More details here.

Concurrent Runtime When online and connected to Orchestrator, a machine consumes a number of licenses equal to the runtime capacity of the machine used to connect it to Orchestrator. The runtime represents the maximum number of processes that can simultaneously run on a specific machine.

Customer is an entity or an individual having received the right to use products by virtue of an agreement.

Disaster Recovery is the copy of a license that may be used solely as needed to regain use of the associated software for disaster recovery and business continuity following a catastrophic loss.

HAA (High Availability Add-on) grants access to supported redundancy and stability solution for one multi-node Orchestrator or Automation Suite instance.

Multiuser is a license model where a license is assigned to 1 user out of a pool of authenticated users. This is available only for On-Premises and Cloud Plans. Each Multiuser license adding up to 3 distinct authenticated users to the maximum number of users that can be granted access. Multiuser may be displayed as “Concurrent User” in legacy platform version

Named User is a license model where a license is assigned to, and may only be used by, a uniquely identified user.

NonProduction is available only for designated software and refers to non-production use, such as internal development, internal training, and evaluation, excluding any production use

Production refers to use of the software according to its intended commercial designation.

Product, Service, or Software may be used interchangeably, and each refers to any software component, service, and the underlying technology proprietary to UiPath. UiPath has the right to license or distribute to its customers.

New! Robots Units Metrics that is used for Automation Cloud Robots - VM or Serverless. VM Automation Cloud Robots consumes RUs per month and Serverless Automation Cloud Robots consumes RUs per min usage.

Runtime is an execution slot an unattended robot can use to execute an automation. A machine (physical or virtual) has a runtime capacity equal to the maximum number of unattended robots that can execute simultaneously on that machine.

Unattended Robots Allows the execution of workflows without human supervision through the management capabilities offered by UiPath Orchestrator. More details here.

Guidelines and Restrictions

  1. Multiuser and Named User licenses for the same product cannot co-exist on the same Orchestrator key.
  2. Studio may be activated using a Robot license only for limited purpose (and not for the purpose of developing workflows), as follows:
    • Activation through the Attended Robot or Testing Robot is limited to debugging (no editing allowed)
    • Activation through Unattended Robot or NonProduction Robot is limited to troubleshooting (editing allowed)
  3. Studio and Attended Robots used without Orchestrator are activated with standalone licenses.
  4. Attended Robots cannot be used as Unattended Robots.
  5. NonProduction designated products cannot be used in production. Automation workflows must not be executed in production using NonProduction licenses.
  6. Disaster Recovery may be enabled only for certain products, as allowed by UiPath, and is subject to the same rules and restrictions as the production license of such product. The production license and the Disaster Recovery setup cannot be enabled at the same time
  7. For Products Orchestrated through Flex Plan or Cloud Plan, customer must choose one deployment environment for the Product. Customers are not allowed to use the same Product license on Automation Cloud, Automation Suite, and Individual Products (Windows installer) at the same time. UiPath allows customer to change the deployment environment (ie. Automation Cloud, Automation Suite, Individual Products) during the license term. UiPath grants a 3 (three) months term for completing the migration from one deployment environment to the other. In deviation to the above, during the migration period, customer can deploy the same Product license in both environments. This deviation is limited to once per license term.
The SKUs offered in the Flex Plan provides entitlements to deploy and license the product in any of the 3 deployments:
  • Automation Cloud - The Cloud Native UiPath Platform delivered as SaaS from UiPath - hosted in Azure, Managed by UiPath
  • Automation Suite - UiPath Platform delivered as a single, containerized suite on environment of choice - on-premises or cloud subscription to any of the major providers.
  • Individual Products - UiPath Platform products individually installed and managed on-premises. Products are installed on supported windows operating systems and physical/virtual hardware on-premises.
