Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 editions and licensing_deleted


Applies To: Dynamics CRM 2015

Microsoft Dynamics CRM offers licensing options that cover implementations for small, to mid-level, to even very large organizations.

Editions and licensing for on-premises deployments

  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2015. There is no user limit for this edition. Additional features include support for multiple organizations, multiple server instances, and separate role-based service installation. Role-based services let you increase performance by installing Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server features on different computers.

  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM Workgroup Server 2015. This edition is limited to five, or fewer, users. This version is limited to a single organization and a single computer that is running Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server.


A Microsoft Dynamics CRM deployment operates by using a single product key. However, each Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server in a deployment requires a server license. Only the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2015 edition is licensed for multiple Microsoft Dynamics CRM servers or server roles in a deployment. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Workgroup Server 2015 edition is limited to running on a single server in a deployment.

You can view and upgrade a license in Deployment Manager. Deployment Manager is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that system administrators can use to manage organizations, servers, and licenses for deployments of Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Client access license types

You can view and modify client access license types for each user in the Users area of the Settings area in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM web client. For more information about Microsoft Dynamics CRM licensing, see How to buy Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
