Licensing & Other Modules

  • How do I apply the license if ServiceDesk Plus service is down due to license expiry ?

    If you have purchase the license via a PO, the license will be applied automatically from the back end after we receive the PO.

  • What takes up a license in ServiceDesk Plus?

    Licensing in is based on the number of nodes and the number of technician logins.

    Active IT assets such as workstations, printers, and servers are considered nodes and take up a license.

    You can add any number of ServiceDesk Plus but the login permissions are based on the licenses purchased. Non-login technicians will not be provided with login permissions but you can configure to send SLA violation emails, group notifications and scheduled reports to these technicians.

    A typical case where Non-Login technicians can be used is for your Field Technicians, who need not log into the application but be notified about the issues assigned to them. When a request is assigned to these technicians, a notification is sent via email from ServiceDesk Plus. On completion of their job and replying to the notification email, ServiceDesk Plus will append the reply as a conversation in the original request automatically.
