KendoReact Purchasing and Licensing FAQ


Expand all
  • What's included in the license?

    In general, Telerik Developer Tools licenses come with one year of product updates (new features and fixes) and your selected tier of dedicated support.

    Telerik and Kendo UI licenses are perpetual, which means you can continue using the products after the one-year subscription expires, but you will lose your access to product updates (new features and fixes) and support. If you wish to continue your subscription to new product versions and support, you need to renew your license. The rate for Early Renewals is just 50% of the original price of the license. Check rates here.

  • Am I allowed to use the product after the one-year subscription expires?

    Since Telerik and Kendo UI product licenses are perpetual, you are allowed to continue using the products even after the one-year subscription expires. However, you will be using the last product version released before your license expired. You will lose your access to new functionality and updates for new technologies as well as the option to contact our technical support.

    If you wish to preserve your access to product updates (new features and fixes) and dedicated ticket support, you need to renew your license. The rate for Early Renewals is just 50% of the original price of the license. Check rates here.

  • Can I use the product on more than one project/server/domain?

    The KendoReact and Kendo UI product licenses have NO deployment limitations—they allow the use of the controls for an unlimited number of applications spanning various servers and domains.

  • How do I assign developers to the purchased licenses?

    Upon your purchase of a product license, you become the License Holder and a customer account is created in our system. You will have access to the Manage Licensed Users utility in Your Account, from which you can assign licensed users (developers or consultants). Each assigned user will receive their own credentials to log into the system and will have access to the software and support.

    Whenever you decide to re-assign the product license to another user, you can delete the current Licensed User from your Users list and assign a new User. There will not be a physical transfer of the license as everything happens online and is a matter of granting rights regardless of where the user is located.

  • How many licenses do I need?

    Each license allows one developer to work with the design-time product. If you purchase a license for a product bundle, such as Kendo UI, all the tools in the bundle are licensed to one developer, and only that developer is able to develop products with the tools in the bundle.

  • What is the policy on redistributing Telerik software?

    Our developer licenses are royalty free. The licensed developer can use our tools in:

    • Solutions for internal company use
    • Hosted applications
    • Commercial solutions deployed for end customers by our customers

    There are only three usage limitations that require additional discussion with our sales team:

    • A product that exposes the design-time of Kendo UI products. Examples: Visual Studio.NET plug-in, code generators. None of the commercial component vendors consents to this type of usage.
    • Modules/components that DO NOT add significant primary functionality. Example: an updated theme for a set of components that is sold as a separate product and includes the KendoReact Menu and TreeView components. In such cases, we offer reseller arrangements so that everyone has an incentive to enter into a commercial relationship
    • Open source projects. We are avid supporters of many open source initiatives. However, our standard policies do not allow the native integration of Kendo UI products in open source products as this would violate our product's IP.

    If your desired use falls under any of the three categories listed above, please contact sales. We will be happy to discuss your needs and see what we can do to accommodate your case.

  • Will the product function without a license key?

    While the product will not break any builds without a license key, usage of KendoReact still falls under the legal terms of the KendoReact End User License Agreement. The warning message in your projects will persist until a valid license key has been registered to the project. Please, be aware that future updates may restrict or disable some features when no valid license key is present.

  • Does the license key expire?

    Yes, the license key expires at the end of your support subscription.

    For trial users, this is at the end of your 30-day trial. For licensed developers, this is when your subscription expires, by default a year from initial purchase.

    You will need to obtain and install a new license key after purchasing KendoReact, after starting a trial, renewing or upgrading a license.

    Packages published before the expiration date are not affected. They are subject to the perpetual license of KendoReact.

  • Do I need to be connected to the internet to activate the license?

    No, the license activation and validation are performed entirely offline.

    No network requests are made at any point of the project lifecycle.

  • My team has more than one licensed developer. Which key should we use?

    Any of the keys associated with your subscription(s) could be used to activate KendoReact.

Renewals & Upgrades

  • What are the benefits of renewing my license?

    By renewing your license, you ensure your continued access to new versions of your product and professional technical support by the developers who build the product.

    The best time to renew your license is up to 60 days before it expires because the rate for Early Renewals is just 50% of the original price of the license. After which, it starts to go up. Check all rates here.

  • How can I check my upgrade options?

    Please visit the "Renewals & Upgrades" page in Your Account to review the specific upgrade options and pricing applicable to you.

  • What are the benefits of upgrading my license?

    You can upgrade any individual product or product bundle to a higher value product bundle at any time, but the sooner you do it after the purchase of your license, the cheaper the upgrade options will be. Check rates here.

    Upgrading to a DevCraft bundle makes sense when you would like to use more than one Telerik product. You can compare the different DevCraft editions here.

  • How do I renew my license?

    You can renew your license by logging into Your Account and going to the "Renewals & Upgrades" page.

You'll receive up to five reminder e-mails before your subscription expires. We'll send them at 90 days, 60 days, 30 days, 15 days and 5 days before expiration.
