Bluebeam’s Licensing Model

Bluebeam Revu Perpetual License

Perpetual Licensing is a licensing system that requires companies to purchase and register Revu on a per workstation basis using a serial number and product key. Perpetual licensing is available for Revu Standard, CAD and eXtreme and may include Maintenance.

Bluebeam Revu Open License

Open Licensing is an annual subscription that allows companies to authorize concurrent access to Revu eXtreme for any user in their company from a shared pool of seats. Open Licensing brings flexibility and the benefits of volume software licensing to organizations of all sizes, anytime, anywhere.

Seats may be added to an existing Open License at any time, and they will be prorated based on the renewal date. Active subscriptions are entitled to free upgrades and Maintenance, with access to our Technical Support team by phone and email.

What are the Administrator capabilities for Open Licensing?
  • Access to the Bluebeam Gateway

  • Count active Revu users versus available seats

  • View usage trends over a selectable calendar period

  • Access historical data of overages

  • Export logs, registered computers and username data

  • Manage multiple seats through a single interface

  • Invite additional Administrators to assist in managing active users

  • Incrementally update users to the latest version of Revu eXtreme

Which versions and editions of Revu are supported by Open Licensing?

Open Licensing supports Revu eXtreme, version 2015.5 and above.

What happens if an Open License user loses internet access?

For situations when connectivity to the internet becomes temporarily unavailable, or if a computer is outside of the office and cannot connect, Open License seats will switch to offline mode. In offline mode, each device is granted three days to use the program before it is required to connect back to the Bluebeam Gateway.

What happens if all the seats in my Open License pool are checked out but someone urgently needs to use Revu?

Administrators have the option to log in to the Gateway and manually release any user whose status is inactive. If the Administrator releases a seat while a user is working in the program, we release the seat but also protect the active user by allowing them to continue working so that they will not lose their work. Only when they close and reopen Revu again will they need an available Open License seat to continue working with Revu.

How are upgrades within Open Licenses managed?

We understand that fully upgrading software within an organization takes time. If you own an Open License and an upgrade to the next version becomes available, both the current and new versions will continue sharing the same pool of seats. This allows for ultimate flexibility when your environment requires incremental upgrades.

Bluebeam Revu Enterprise License

This is a special license designed to manage computer turnover by:

  1. Automatically releasing registered computers that have not communicated with our licensing server after 15 days.
  2. Providing a temporary 5% overage of the total number of allowed installations.
How does Enterprise Licensing work?

An Enterprise License is a special license key of Bluebeam Revu designed to help manage computer turnover. It does two things:

  1. Automatically releases registered computers that have failed to communicate with our licensing server for 15 days.
  2. Provides a temporary 5% overage of the total number of allowed installations.

In other words, once a machine takes up a seat by registering to an Enterprise License, it will periodically ping Bluebeam’s Licensing Server to confirm that it is still active. If the machine fails to communicate with the server for a period of 15 days, it will automatically be released from the license key, freeing up the seat to be registered to another machine. The 5% overage, or cushion, allows for the lag time between re-imaging workstations or releasing inactive seats. If you exceed the overage allowance, an “exceeded licenses” warning will appear, and further installations will be restricted.

The benefit of Enterprise Licensing is that there is no longer a need to manually uninstall or release seats from workstations that are being transferred, phased out or re-imaged. This Enterprise Licensing option takes care of that for you, ensuring that your licensed seats are fully utilized. Plus, because it is managed with Bluebeam servers, there is no need to install or maintain anything locally.

What are the Administrator capabilities for Enterprise Licensing?
  • Access to the Bluebeam Gateway
  • Count active Revu users versus available seats
  • Manage multiple seats through a single interface
  • Invite additional Administrators to assist in managing active users
  • Incrementally update users to the latest version of Revu eXtreme
How do I know if I have used all my licenses? Is there a charge for going over?

With an Enterprise License, you gain access to the Bluebeam Gateway, a web portal for viewing and managing both Enterprise and Open Licenses. The Bluebeam Gateway allows you to view how many seats of each version and edition you own, how many computers, or “seats,” are registered to each license, and which computers they are.

As long as your total number of registered machines per edition does not exceed the total number of seats allowed plus the 5% overage allowance, you are good! If you are approaching or exceeding your limit, you can purchase additional seats or unregister licenses from computers as needed. Any new seats purchased may take up to 24 hours to update and appear in the Gateway.

How do I qualify for Enterprise Licensing?

There are a couple requirements for Enterprise Licensing. First, your licenses must be consolidated into a single license key by product. Second, your annual Maintenance must be current and maintained. Please note, Enterprise Licenses are not intended for Citrix or other terminal server environments.
