What is the Enterprise Starter Pack (ESP)?

The Enterprise Starter Pack provides 10 Named User licences and allows you to publish as many Open Access Dashboards to as many users as you want. Because Open Access Dashboards are accessed without having to authenticate against SCOM, they can be made available to both SCOM users and non-SCOM users.

What is the Enterprise Application Monitoring (EAM) edition?

Enterprise Application Monitoring comes with a number of valuable features that are not available with other licensing options, including Visual Application Discovery and Analysis (VADA), OMS Integration and WebAPI data.

There are four main EAM options - EAM 20, EAM 50, EAM 100, EAM 250 – which provide for 20, 50, 100 and 250 Named Users respectively. Functionally, the EAM 20, EAM 50, EAM 100, EAM 250 are all identical.

Can I get WebAPI Data with an Enterprise Starter Pack?

No, you must have EAM 20 or above to have WebAPI Data.

Will my licence cover multiple SCOM Management Groups?

No, Squared Up is licenced separately per Management Group.

Can I purchase additional Named User licenses at a later stage?

Is there any cost-penalty to adding additional Named Users at a later stage?

No. Squared Up makes it easy for you to increase your number of Named Users by co-terming any license expansion to your existing subscription. This means there’s no financial penalty or drawback to adding additional users at a later stage.

Is it technically difficult to add additional Named Users?

No, it’s a simple license key update.

Dashboards

Is there any limit to the number of Dashboards I can create?

No. Irrespective of what Squared Up license you have you can create as many Dashboards as you want.

What are Open Access Dashboards?

Open Access Dashboards are non-interactive versions of your Squared Up dashboards. Users can access Open Access dashboards without authenticating against SCOM and without requiring a Named User license. Open Access dashboards are highly scalable and are perfect for publishing and sharing widely throughout your organisation because (i) you don’t need to set up user permissions with SCOM (ii) our Open Access technology allows multiple users to view dashboards without additional load on your backend SCOM infrastructure.

Do Open Access Dashboards show live data?

Yes, Open Access dashboards show live data from your SCOM environment and refresh every 60 seconds by default.

Is there an interactive version of Open Access Dashboards?

No, Open Access Dashboards are completely non-interactive. If you want a user to have interactive access to Squared Up then they must have a Squared Up Named User licence.

Can I assign user permissions to Open Access Dashboards?

No. Open Access Dashboards are deliberately designed to allow you to publish Dashboards to users without requiring authentication against SCOM. This means that you can’t apply user permissions to Open Access Dashboards.

Who can author Squared Up Dashboards / Perspectives?

From a commercial / licensing perspective, any of your Named Users are able to create their own custom dashboards using our In-GUI dashboard designer. However, from a technical point-of-view, typically you may not wish to allow this and so, by default, only SCOM Admins have permissions to create and edit Dashboards / Perspectives. More details on how those permissions can be manged are available in the following KB article;

https://support.squaredup.com/v3/Walkthroughs/HowToManageUserProfiles

Named Users

What are Named Users?

Named Users are users who have full, interactive access to Squared Up, including dashboard drilldowns, perspectives, performance reporting, alert management and more. A Squared Up Named User corresponds with one of your existing SCOM Users and Squared Up adheres to SCOM Role Based Access Control (RBAC).

Are Named Users licenses fixed or concurrent?

Fixed. Squared Up Named Users licenses are assigned to users on a fixed / static basis, meaning there's a 1:1 relationship between a user and a license. Squared Up does not have a concurrent users licensing model.

Can the same user access Squared Up from more than one device at the same time?

No. Whilst a Named User can roam across devices, the same user cannot connect from more than one device simultaneously.

Can I purchase additional Named User licenses?

Yes, you can purchase additional users at any time, whether in multiples of users (eg. an additional five Named Users on top of an Enterprise Starter Pack) or moving from one licensing option to another (eg. from an ESP to EAM 50).

No, it’s a simple license key update.

Can I restrict what data specific users see?

Yes. Squared Up Named Users adhere to SCOM Role Based Access Control (RBAC), meaning that there’s no additional layer of user permissions for you to manage. The data your users can access within Squared Up will automatically be scoped accordingly to the permissions you have set up for those users in SCOM Role Based Access Control.
