Time limitation on Doc Cals?

Hi all!

I have allocated 20 Cals to a document. I have also checked "Allow dynamic CAL assignment".

But I have 30 users and they don't use the document every day. So my question is if there is a way to delete all assigned Cals every 24 hours so the users will be assigned a 'new' Cal every time (or when) they open the document. If there is no Cals left they will have to wait until next day to try again.

Re: Time limitation on Doc Cals?

Hi,

There is a 24 hour quarantine on a deleted license. Unless the license hasn't been used in the last 24 hours. Also, you might want to check your license agreement to make sure you are not violating it.

Re: Time limitation on Doc Cals?

ok so if I delete the license it cant be used for 24 hours...and I might be violating the license agreement...hmm sounds like I have to think about another way of doing this.. Thanks Bill.

Edit: But if the license has been used during the day and deletion is made during that same night then it shouldn't be on quarantine?

The utility that in the power tools will only delete CALs that have not been used in 24 hours. So, that you be a good way to do it. If you know Steve is going on vacation tomorrow and you delete his license at 5:00 today it will be held in quarantine for 24 hours before it can be cleared and reused again

Re: Time limitation on Doc Cals?

Ok thanks Bill. Then this is definitely not a solution. The initial problem is that all licenses will be used (20), lets say today, and there will be users that were not assigned a CAL thus no access to the document. I wanted to delete the CALS by night so all assignment of the licenses starts over tomorrow. So if a user didn't have access to the document today the user might have access tomorrow if there are licenses left.
