If I buy a Stash license key for 500 users, can I apply the same license key in 2 different instances of stash with say 250 users in each instance? Will it work? If not, is it necessary to buy 2 license keys in order to support 2 stash instances?
This will not work, you'll need to buy a license key for each production instance you have of Stash.
If you have a production instance and a testing instance (to test Stash updates or plugins) you could use a developers license for the testing instance.
More information about the developers license can be found here :
They have the same functionality. A production instance is the Stash instance you actually and actively use for development.
A non-production instance is a Stash instance you use as a backup or as a testing environment for upgrades and plugins.
I hope this explains it better.
I'm afraid according to the terms of our license you can only use one license per production instance:
Do you mind me asking why you want to run two instances with only 250 users? Are you worried about performance, permissions, location-based or something else?
Thank you for your response. We wanted 2 instances of stash because of 2 different development sites(US and India). We have found that maintaining a single instance of stash in either of the locations will slow down(a lot) the GIT related activities such as cloning in the other location.
So buying 2 licenses is my only option then?
Sorry to bother you guys again. I have another doubt related to my earlier question.
If I have already applied my 500 user license on my first instance of Stash, can I remove that license from my first instance and add it in my second instance? The idea is to add a new license key to one instance of stash and re-use the other license key in another instance of stash.
Please reply. Thanks in advance.
This is certainly possible.
Simply replace the license key in your first instance with another license key (a developers license key or a trial license key or a newly purchased license key). Don't forget to copy the key to notepad first!
And then paste the license key from your first instance (which you have in notepad) into the license field of your second instance.
