Automation License for continuous integration
Set up SQL Server continuous integration with the SQL Developer Bundle
At the moment, we provide Automation Licenses for people who have their own continuous integration systems in place and use the SQL Developer Bundle.
If you don't have the SQL Developer Bundle, you can try it out for free, or get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how Red Gate can help bring continuous integration to your business.
What is an Automation License?
An Automation License allows you to use Red Gate tools as part of an automated process installed on a server, virtual machine, or build agent.
Do I need an Automation License?
If you are using the command line tools from any of the products in the SQL Developer Bundle on a server, you will need an Automation License.
How many will I need?
You need one Automation License for every concurrent Red Gate process you run on your server. If you have a single build instance that handles tasks, you only need one license. If you have more, running multiple tasks simultaneously, you need a License for each instance. In Team City, these instances are referred to as build agents.
I already have a SQL Developer Bundle license - doesn't that cover me?
The SQL Developer Bundle and its constituent tools are licensed per-user, to be installed on an individual's PC or laptop for their own use. The automation of the tools as part of a server installation is not covered by your SQL Developer Bundle's per-user licensing.
Do I need an Automation License if I'm using the command line tools on my desktop machine?
If you are using the command lines for SQL Developer Bundle tools on your own PC, rather than configuring a build server or build agents to benefit your team, you do not need an Automation License. This is already covered under your existing per-user license.
Do I need to own a SQL Developer Bundle license to use an Automation License?
While the Automation License can be used with standalone command line tools, the SQL Developer Bundle is required for the best experience.
What does the license actually do?
The Automation License lets you run the command line versions of SQL Compare, SQL Data Compare, SQL Packager, SQL Doc, and SQL Data Generator. The sqlCI.exe tool, the TeamCity plugin, and the build scripts are provided free, however, they call the Red Gate tools listed above which require a license.
How do I license it?
It depends on exactly how you're using the integration tools. For more information on using the Automation License, see the following page which covers it in detail: http://www.red-gate.com/supportcenter/Content/Automation_with_Red_Gate_tools/help/1.0/ActivatingyourAutomationLicense
