LICENSING MODEL AND DESCRIPTION

UiPath Component Licensing Model Description
UiPath Orchestrator (OC) Server A User may activate OC on a farm of Machines that belong to a single logical OC instance. Any User can then access OC at any time.
UiPath Studio (ST)
with OC
Named User (*) Only a uniquely identified User can access ST in an active Desktop session. ST may be licensed on multiple Machines that share the same uniquely identified User and is activated via OC using a Development License. One ST license may be active on only one Machine at any given point in time.The Customer must obtain separate licenses for each uniquely identified User accessing ST.
Concurrent User Any User can access ST in an active Desktop session. ST may be licensed on multiple Machines and is activated via OC using a Development License. One ST license may not be active on more than one active Desktop session at any given point in time. The Customer must obtain separate licenses for each User simultaneously accessing ST.
UiPath Studio (ST)
without OC
Named User (*) Only a uniquely identified User can access ST in an active Desktop session. ST is activated using a stand-alone license. A license may be activated on a single Machine. The Customer must obtain separate licenses for each uniquely identified User accessing ST.
Node Locked Any User can access ST in an active Desktop session, one User at a time. ST is activated using a stand-alone license. A license may be activated on a single Machine. The Customer must obtain separate licenses for each User simultaneously accessing ST.
UiPath Attended Robot (AR)
with OC
Named User (*) Only a uniquely identified User can access AR in an active Desktop session. AR may be licensed on multiple Machines that share the same uniquely identified User and is activated via OC using an AR license. One AR license may be active on only one Machine at any given point in time. The Customer must obtain separate licenses for each uniquely identified User accessing AR.
Concurrent User Any User can access the AR in an active Desktop session. AR may be licensed on multiple Machines and is activated via OC by using an AR license. One AR license may not be active on more than one active Desktop session at any given point in time. The Customer must obtain separate licenses for each User simultaneously accessing AR.
UiPath Attended Robot (AR)
Without OC
Named User (*) Only a uniquely identified User can access the AR in an active Desktop session. AR is activated using a stand-alone license. A license may be activated on a single Machine. The Customer must obtain separate licenses for each uniquely identified User accessing AR.
Node Locked Any User can access the AR in an active Desktop session, one User at a time. AR is activated using a stand-alone license. A license may be activated on a single Machine. The Customer must obtain separate licenses for each User simultaneously accessing AR.
UiPath Unattended Robot (UR)

With OC
Concurrent Runtime UR may be licensed on multiple Machines and accessed by any number of Users. One UR license may not be active on more than one Desktop session at any given point in time. The Customer must obtain separate licenses for the maximum number of Runtimes of the Machines connected simultaneously to OC.
UiPath Unattended Robot (UR) without OC Node Locked Only one Software Instance can run at a time, irrespective of the number of Users having access to it. UR is activated using a stand-alone license. A license may be activated on a single Machine. The Customer must obtain separate licenses for each User simultaneously accessing UR. 
Clarifications

1. (*) Starting with UiPath RPA Platform 2018.1, the Named User license is the successor of the Authorized User license.
2. ST, AR, UR and NR, in conjunction with OC, benefit from a centralized licensing model. They are activated via an OC connection through dedicated licenses, respectively Development, AR, UR or Non-Production licenses which are granted in OC for each of them.
3. ST may be activated using UR, AR or Non-Production License, solely for debugging purposes. A separate ST license is required if the ST is used to create or edit Development Outputs on the Machine where the ST was activated using a UR, AR or NR license.
4. UR can also be used as AR, in accordance with the AR licensing specifications.
5. AR cannot be used as UR.
6. ST and AR can be used independently without OC or in conjunction with OC. ST and AR used without OC are activated with stand-alone licenses.
7. If ST or AR licensed with a stand-alone license is also activated through a license granted in OC, the OC license will govern.
8. Customers purchasing ST in conjunction with OC will be provided in OC with a number of Development Licenses equal to that of purchased ST licenses. Development Licenses are not provided if ST is used without OC.

9. Support is not provided for Unattended Robot without OC.

10. In its commercial offer UiPath distinguishes between OC Basic and OC Standard. OC Basic is a version of OC Standard with the same technical functionalities, but limited to be used by a single tenant, with a maximum of 5 Robots (Attended and/or Unattended) and a maximum of 5 Studios.
