QC/ALM – How do ”Additional” Licenses work (Requirements, Defects, etc.)?
Question ID: 104793

Our company just bought some "Additional Requirements" licenses. How does Quality Center recognize the logged-on user is a "Requirements Only" user versus a "Full" QC user?
How can we make sure the "Requirements Only" user only consumes a Requirements license?

You can create ''Requirements Only'' users with the following process:

1) Log into your project in Quality Center and go to Project Customization (Tools -> Customize).

2) In Project Customization, go to 'Groups and Permissions' and specify a User Group that you will use for Requirements Only users. Make sure the desired users are ONLY a member of that User Group.

3) In Project Customization, go to 'Module Access' and select only the Requirements Module for your User Group from Step 2 (make sure the other modules are de-selected).

4) Now, when a user who is a member of that User Group logs into the project, only a Requirements license will be used.

You can use the same process for ''Defects Only'' users by selecting the Defects Module in Step 3.

Thanks! I've successfully created my ''Requirements Only'' user group, and now when an included user logs into QC, my Licenses tab in Site Admin only shows a Requirements license as being used.
