This document has been updated to clarify the types of supported licenses.
The ISV licensing feature ensures that every ISV does not have to invest development resources in their own licensing mechanism. The feature does the following:
Provides a safer licensing mechanism for ISV solutions for honest customers and partners, so that ISV solutions are enabled only if the customer has purchased a valid license key from the ISV.
Aligns how customers handle licenses for ISV solutions from different ISVs and thereby lowers their total cost of ownership (TCO).
Allows ISVs to independently generate, manage, and distribute ISV licenses using industry-standard frameworks.
