Licensing: Publish WebHelp from oXygen

Tue Dec 05, 2017 6:33 pm

Hi,

I know that publishing WebHelp output from the command line requires a separate license. So do I understand correctly that I can generate WebHelp output from within oXygen and deliver this output to a customer without any additional license?

Best regards,
Frank

Hi Frank,

Thank you for contacting us.

The WebHelp license is a process-based license, so, as long as you would have one deployment of the WebHelp license which will only be used in a single external process, then, yes you need a single WebHelp license.

You can find more detailed clarifications in the oXygen WebHelp EULA, at:
https://www.oxygenxml.com/eula_webhelp.html

Also, please read the Oxygen XML WebHelp FAQ for additional information.

Let us know whenever you need any other information.
Regards,
Cosmin

Hi Cosmin,

Thanks for your reply. I read the additional documents you mentioned but one thing is still not completly clear for me:

https://www.oxygenxml.com/sales_faq.html#xmlwebhelp states the following:

The WebHelp EULA places no restrictions on the generated WebHelp pages. Therefore, you may publish them wherever you want and you may include them in a third-party product without restrictions.


We only have licenses for stand-alone oXygen but no dedicated license for server-based WebHelp generation. Does the above statement is also valid for generated WebHelp pages generated with stand-alone oXygen?

Kind regards,
Frank

Hello,

Yes, the above statement is also valid for generated WebHelp output using a stand-alone <oXygen/> license.

Let us know if you need further assistance.
