An Overview of SquaredUp Licensing

Each SquaredUp licence is restricted to a single Azure tenant (Azure Active Directory) but can access and display data from multiple Azure subscriptions.

Where to find your activation key

You will need a licence activation key (often called a licence key or activation key) to install SquaredUp for Azure. You will have received this by email following your purchase or free trial. If you do not have an activation key please contact Support.

Licence information

The Trial licence allows for unlimited users and all features for a 30 day evaluation in your own environment and is available from here

The Primary licence will be sent to you following your purchase, and should be used on your SquaredUp Production server.

The Test licence designed for your test or dev lab is included free of charge with a purchase.


Named Users refers to the number of users who can log on to SquaredUp, and is restricted by the number of Named User licences you have purchased. See SquaredUp Users and How to manage Named Users.

Team Folders enable you to deliver dashboards and delegate control to different teams within your organisation (or to different clients if you are a service provider). See Team Folders.

Open Access enables easy sharing of dashboards throughout your organization. Open Access dashboards are non-interactive, do not require authentication and do not consume Named User licences. See Open Access.

The Support Portal allows access to online and email support from SquaredUp https://support.squaredup.com/
