Is it possible to convert an existing fixed license to floating type ? What are the costs involved ?

Hello there,

 

I am guessing that i have a fixed license from my company for the ReadyAPI. Is it possible to convert the same fixed license to a floating license?

The reason why i am looking to convert it into floating is, i would like to dockerize my ReadyAPI test suite so that it runs in a docker container. I read from here https://support.smartbear.com/readyapi/docs/integrations/docker/soapui.html that required license for using the image is floating license.

It would be great if anyone can share the process for converting fixed license to a floating license.

 

Thank you,

Saritha

Hey @sjagannathan,

Current fixed term licenses cost 640 Euros. The cost of a floater is 4100 Euros.

I dont think theres a "conversion process" to switch from fixed to floating per se. Smartbear "might" agree to knock off the cost of the remaining months of your fixed license from the cost of a floater if you wanted to switch, but that's a guess on my part.

Before anything im guessing youd need to qualify the increased cost of a floating license to the company you work for before you even bother contacting Smartbear to see if swapping the licenses over.

Cheers,

Rich
