    Yes, each client can use a different license, but you can upload only one license file to the sql-server for one database. If a client needs another license (for example a developper license), the client can use it for that session.

    I don't see another possibility to use another license file then the default one then follow the menu-tool-license-change license. There is no start-up property to do it directly.

    Yes it's possible. File->database->alter->Integration tab->There is an option save license in database.
    Check that field and Navision will keep the license in the each db instead of in the master db.

    OK, I know. But the question is here to use a different license for each client on the same database. SO, the possibility to use a license file for each different database doesn't solve this problem.

    When you connect Navision, the client automatically loads the license from the server. There is no workaround for this. If the other license is a developer license, then you should not develop on the same db. if it's not the license, then you should not use two different license on the same server.

    nope, the zup file does not store the license info. You could write a keystroke on open company to load the second license, which will close the session and reopen it with a new client.

    Why would you want to use the same database for more than one customer? Doesn't each of your customers have their own database?

    By default the license file is stored in the Master database, so all NAV databases on that SQL server will use that one license. It is possible to store the license inside the database, but that requires the license to have the 'license per database' granule (it might be called a little differently).

    In case you want the dev license only to be used by some users, do upload that license to the server and arrange by security that only the mentioned users can access the development granules (table, form, report,.. designers). This is realy the only way and I wouldn't know why you have to switch every time. The license is boud to a certain customer. So all the users should use that same license. The security roles then permit the developpers to use the designer granules.

    The issue with developer license is that it only allows 10 users.

    Sorry, but I do not understand... if customer have 500 sessions and will buy Report designer, Application builder or Solution Developer granule, the license will still have 500 sessions but just one granule more...

    10 user license is partner devel. license (004 in the license no.). It is not customer license...

    Yes from what I gather, they have two license. So I'm assuming one is a developer license and another is customer license.

    I don't think you have been reading everything, but it has been answered a number of times.

    No what you are asking is not possible. Any database can only have one license file as its default, either on a server level or on a database level. If individual users need access to the developer license, they will have to do a license change.

    I fully agree with DenSter and ara3n. So I think this topic should be closed now.

    I would advise to just load the latest license, and manage access to the object designer with permissions.
