How AppSheet Enterprise Plus licenses are provisioned

Learn how AppSheet Enterprise licenses are provisioned.

Overview of AppSheet Enterprise Plus licensing models

AppSheet Enterprise Plus licenses are provisioned in one of the following ways:

Assigned licensing (Default model)

Team licensing (Legacy model)

New AppSheet Enterprise Plus customers with an existing Google Workspace account are required to assign licenses through the Google Admin console.

If a Google Workspace user account has not been assigned an AppSheet Enterprise Plus license, then they retain their AppSheet Core entitlement, if applicable, or can use AppSheet for free.

The legacy approach to provisioning AppSheet Enterprise Plus provides access to all users in the customer’s verified domain.

Any user that shares the customer's domain in their email address gets access to AppSheet Enterprise Plus regardless of license assignment in the Google Admin console.

New non-Workspace customers can purchase AppSheet Enterprise Plus using the team licensing model by working with with their AppSheet Sales representative.
 
Legacy customers and non-Workspace customers can remain on the team licensing model, or can work with their AppSheet Sales representative to switch to assigned licensing using the Google Admin console.

Benefits of assigned licensing

Benefits of assigned licensing include the ability to do the following:

  • Control access to the AppSheet Enterprise Plus subscription.
  • Review and manage billing in the Google Admin console.
  • Automatically assign licenses to organizational units, as required.
  • Enable a dual-license environment (for example, AppSheet Core and AppSheet Enterprise Plus users).

Comparison of features with assigned and team licensing

The following table compares AppSheet features and their behaviors with each licensing model.

App creation and sharing

Only users that have been assigned a license have access to AppSheet Enterprise Plus.

App creators can share licenses with users using the Share dialog. It's up to the Workspace admin to ensure that they have the required licenses.

All users that share a domain with the root admin have access to the same AppSheet Enterprise Plus entitlement.

Access and billing

Customers on a commit plan are billed for a pre-negotiated number of users regardless of usage.

Customers on a flex plan are billed for assigned licenses; only users that have been assigned a license can access and use AppSheet Enterprise Plus.

Customers on a flex plan are billed for assigned licenses; but any user within the customer’s domain can access and use AppSheet Enterprise Plus.

Governance

You shouldn't expect to be able to govern (that is, enforce policies, apply team settings, etc.) users that are not assigned an AppSheet Enterprise Plus license. For legacy reasons, this restriction may not always be enforced, but to reliably govern a set of users they all need to be upgraded to AppSheet Enterprise Plus.

Users that have AppSheet Core are also subject to the policies and team management settings defined by the admin with AppSheet Enterprise Plus.

All users in a customer’s domain, regardless of the AppSheet Enterprise Plus license assignment, are subject to governance policies and team management settings.

Users that have AppSheet Core are also subject to the policies and team management settings defined by the admin with AppSheet Enterprise Plus.
