    To whom it may concern, 

                Currently we manually ran our Telerik Tests in one of our DEV servers which has a Telerik Test Studio license. We want to move the tests to one of our Continuous Integration servers and move the Telerik license over. However, we have a separate Build server where we get all our builds. The build that get created gets deployed to our CI server.

    My question is do we still need the Telerik Test Studio license for our build servers? We do not run or create tests in our build servers. We just need to create new builds.
    Is there a plugin we can use that does not require a license.

    - Thanks

    I'll simplify my question. If i installed Telerik test studio trial and created some projects, when my trial ends will my solution still build. Hence, I just cannot create anymore automation tests.

    Hi Richard,

    Test Studio is licensed on a "per machine" basis. You do need some license installed on each machine that is involved with creating, building and running Test Studio tests. The real question is which license best fits the needs of the machines role on question:
    • Ultimate Edition
    • Function Edition
    • Load Edition
    • Runtime Edition

    For build servers just building the test project the Runtime edition works best. It doesn't allow you to create new tests or modify existing tests but support building on a build/CI server as well as running tests. This edition is significantly cheaper than the first three.

    To answer your final question, when a trial expires the software simply ceases to function. Your test projects and files are still intact and will be usable once a purchased license is activated on that machine, or the tests are copied to a machine that has an active license.
