StratusCore gives users the ability to leverage their "single sign on" type license while using the Virtual Workstation. Autodesk (3DS Max, Maya), Maxon C4D, and Adobe CC utilize this method of licensing. Sign-in licensing is very versatile and allows creators to create when and where they choose.
If your application is not listed, please contact your software manufacturer and encourage them to participate. You can also contact StratusCore. We may be able to help.
This article assumes that you already have Virtual Workstation time either though purchasing time, or have been given Virtual Workstation time by your team or project lead. If you need more information about acquiring StratusCore virtual Workstation time: How To Purchase. A Visual Guide.
Before you sign into a Virtual Workstation, you need to select the applications you require.
From the StratusCore Platform Dashboard, click MarketPlace -> Software
The Marketplace software page will load. Scrolling through the page, you will notice publicly available software.
If you cannot find a software application that you or your team needs for a project, please contact us. firstname.lastname@example.org We may be able to help.
For this example, we will select PhotoShop, since Adobe uses the login model for its licensing. After clicking on an application that requires "Bring your own license", the page will scroll to the top and require the user to "agree" to provide log in information to the application (in this case Adobe). If for some reason the Marketplace page does not automatically scroll to the top when you click on an application that requires a log in, feel free to scroll to the top yourself to "agree".
If you do not agree to log into the application when it requests your license information, the application WILL NOT be loaded onto your workstation.
NOTE: StratusCore DOES NOT store or save any personal license information. Once you log out of a Virtual Workstation, your information is removed. If you forget to log out of your application, StratusCore will log you out of your software and then delete your license information.
After agreeing, you will see the green notification that the software is "added".
If the green acknowledgement does not appear or if for some reason the radio button is stuck and you cant click it, hit F5 to refresh and try again.
To verify if an application is selected, scroll through the software list. Software that you have chosen will have a check-mark
