Enterprise Licensing is an alternative to the regular licensing model offered for ProjectForum.
It offers a per-user licensing model (rather than per-group), and other differences that may make it suitable for consideration, particularly for larger sites, or where users participate in several groups. The exact differences are as follows:
|Standard License||Enterprise License|
|Number of groups depends on size of license.||Unlimited number of groups.|
|Unlimited number of users per group.||Number of users depends on size of license.|
|Forums can be open, have a single password, or restricted to individual users.||All forum users must be registered, can be restricted to individual users.|
|Users can be registered site-wide, or have separate accounts with each group; guest users are permitted.||All users must be registered site-wide.|
|User accounts are managed entirely within ProjectForum.||User accounts can be managed entirely within ProjectForum, or linked to an external authentication service, e.g. LDAP (*)|
|Projects cannot have their own user access control lists; they can use the group's list or have a shared password.||Every forum, including both groups and projects, can have separate access control lists.|
|All users in a forum have the same permissions.||Can specify separate permissions for each user.|
Pricing for Enterprise Licenses are on a per-user/per-year basis, and start at US$500 for 50 registered users.
