KB0011 - Are licenses different between Production, QA and Test/Development servers?

Update January 24th, 2023

Adam recently summarized the Developer's license per below:
The only real limitation on the developer license is that it cannot be accessed remotely. The server is only available on loopback when using the dev license.  If you provide access locally to an environment using the dev license, then you can use it. 

We now return to your regularly scheduled KB article

Developers licenses with limited functionality may be created for PowerShell Universal QA/Test servers by using the 'Generate Developer License' button under Settings -> License (see screenshot below)

🛑 You must have at least 1 licensed instance of PowerShell Universal to do this

See the documentation at Licensing - PowerShell Universal for more information

Developer Licenses

When a server license is purchased, you will be able to generate developer licenses for users building solutions for your team. Developer licenses do not allow remote access and are intended to be used locally. Do not use developer licenses when hosting a server for remote access for testing or production.
