After installing and running Studio for the first time, the user is prompted with a license activation wizard, where he is presented with several choices.
- Start Free - A free Community license can be requested, lasting for a limited period of time, which is renewable. This option can only be activated online. The Robot that comes with the Community Edition Studio can only be connected to the UiPath Orchestrator Comunity Edition, under your own tenant.
- Activate License - If the user has an enterprise license code, Studio can be activated by selecting this option. This type of license activates the Enterprise Edition of Studio. This activation can be done both online or offline. For more information, please see the Activating your Studio License.
- View License - The licensing terms can be reviewed at all times by selecting this option.
Studio can also be connected to Orchestrator, with the help of a Development license. As a result, you no longer have to consume other Robot licenses to use the automatic publishing package feature in Studio, and last but not least, you have a centralized location in which to check up on all your licenses.
Starting with 2018.1.1, community users have access to 2 Development Robots. If you used the Community Edition of Orchestrator prior to this version, your Robot type was automatically changed.
