Embarcadero Connect provides the following types of user connection:

Base Admin Connection

This social super user connection comes for free with Embarcadero Connect so that you can connect to Embarcadero Connect and configure your Embarcadero Connect licenses.

By default, you can log in to Embarcadero Connect with this account using the credentials of your Admin account from ER/Studio Repository.

This user connection provides social user access if a Connect user connection is available. If no Connect user connections are available, this user connection provides non-social user access instead.

Author User Connection (Connect License)

Users with a Connect user connection can connect to Embarcadero Connect at any time using their personal account. The same user cannot have more than one session open simultaneously.

These connections provide social user access.

Reader User Connection (Connect License)

This new read-only type of user license gives limited editing functionality while retaining the social user experience and search functions. Reader licenses are allocated automatically on new user enrollment.

Concurrent User Connection (Portal License)

The total number of simultaneous connections is restricted to the number purchased. Concurrent licenses do not restrict the number of Embarcadero Connect connections that the same user makes.

These connections provide non-social user access.

Exclusive User Connection (Portal License)

The total number of connections at one time is restricted to the number of ER/Studio licenses, including node locked and floating licenses. Exclusive user connections are assigned to an ER/Studio user and the user cannot have more than one user session running at any one time.

These connections provide non-social user access.
