The licensing is based on the number of users who can simultaneously log into the form server. A Live Forms' user is anyone that is authenticated to Live Forms for the purpose of:
- Designing a form
- Digitally signing the form ( Live Forms needs to know who the user is in order to generate a signature)
- Participating in a workflow (Live Forms needs to know who the user is in order to display a task list)
- Submitting a form that requires authentication to access
- Access the audit trail (identifying the submitter, for example) and part of the audit trail history
- Using an external security manager (LDAP/Active Directory, for example) with Single Sign On (SSO)
Live Forms also offers Unlimited user licenses.

Types of Users
The types of users in your organization may affect the Live Forms License that you purchase. Refer to the definitions below.
Concurrent users are Live Forms users that are logged in to Live Forms simultaneously. Generally, for Intranet forms/workflows you want to calculate how many users will concurrently be accessing the forms, since in most cases, on an Intranet, people want to know who is submitting the form. For Extranet forms, you generally do not have authenticated users. For instance, a 10-concurrent user license means 10 users can be logged in simultaneously to Live Forms.
Licenses can be purchased for a maximum number of users. This type of license is only available for Live Forms tenants configured with the Default Security Manager. A Named User license controls the number of users the superuser (in-house) or tenant admin can create across all tenants
The number of Named Users shows in the Server Configuration screens accessible to the in-house superadmin and the tenant admin.
These are users that don't need an account in Live Forms and also aren't involved in any of the items described above. Anonymous users do NOT count as Live Forms users and therefore are not limited by the license. Common examples are filling out a survey or a contact form.
