  • Winshuttle Application Server (which includes Winshuttle Central and Workflow)
  • Winshuttle SAP Integration Server (which supports Winshuttle Server for Winshuttle Transaction and Query)


In Workgroup Studio, for each Winshuttle product license (Query, Transaction, Runner), one Central license is assigned.

For example, suppose that you have 100 Winshuttle Central licenses. If you have 5 Query users, and 5 Transaction users, and 10 users of both Query and Transaction, you will be using a total of 20 Central licenses, and 80 remain unassigned.

Note that if a single user has both a Transaction and Query license, only one Central license is assigned.

In Enterprise Studio, users can use any product in the package.
