Split Licenses Between Several NeoLoad Web Accounts
An Enterprise License can now be split between several NeoLoad Web Accounts and/or instances (On-premise or SaaS) for a given duration and a given number of licensed VUs.

Learn more in the documentation.

Offline Lease with NeoLoad Web
In order to test from isolated environments, a NeoLoad Controller can already request a lease from an Enterprise License installed in Neotys Team Server with an offline process.

A NeoLoad Controller now can also request an offline lease from an Enterprise License installed in NeoLoad Web.

Learn more in the documentation.
