Frequently Asked Questions

Overview

Is Squared Up an annual subscription or perpetual licence?

Squared Up is a flexible, annual subscription license. There is no option to purchase Squared Up as a perpetual license.

Can I purchase for multiple years?

Yes, we have options for 3 & 5 Year subscriptions, which carry overall discounts of 15% and 25% respectively.

Are support and upgrades included?

More details on our support policy can be found here; http://www.squaredup.com/support-agreement.

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

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).

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.

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 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.

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, although this value is configurable.

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 / scoping 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;

License Packages

What is the Community Edition (CE)?

For more details on the Community Edition, please see the Community Edition FAQs available at

http://squaredup.com/community-edition

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.

The Enterprise Starter Pack also comes with an additional license to allow you to set up Squared Up in an HA deployment, as well as a single user Lab license free-of-charge.

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.

The EAM comes in three options - EAM 50, EAM 100, EAM 250 – which provide for 50, 100 and 250 Named Users respectively. Functionally, the EAM 50, EAM 100, EAM 250 are identical.

All Enterprise Application Monitoring options also come with an additional license to allow you to set up Squared Up in an HA deployment, as well as a single user Lab license free-of-charge.

Will my licence cover multiple SCOM Management Groups?

No, Squared Up is licenced separately per Management Group. Therefore, if you wish to run Squared Up against multiple SCOM Management Groups, you will need to purchase separate Squared Up license for each Management Group.

Features

Can I get Visual Application Discovery & Analysis (VADA) with an Enterprise Starter Pack?

No, you must have EAM 50 or above to use VADA.

Is there any additional charge for the Management Pack required to power VADA?

No, this Management Pack is available free of charge.

Can I get OMS Integration with an Enterprise Starter Pack?

No, you must have EAM 50 or above to have OMS Integration.

Do my users have to have OMS access in order to view OMS Data within Squared Up?

No. Provided you have EAM 50 or above you can pull OMS Data into Squared Up using a single ‘reader’ account from OMS. However, Squared Up will apply SCOM Role Based Access control to the requests being sent to OMS, meaning even data coming back from OMS will automatically be scoped according to a user’s SCOM permissions.

Can I get WebAPI Data with an Enterprise Starter Pack?

No, you must have EAM 50 or above to have WebAPI Data.
