Created: 25.03.2021 | Updated: 12.08.2021

When roaming, a seat of a license is acquired for a specified time. You do not need to remain signed-in to your account to use the license in this mode. You can sign out and work offline, in essence roaming freely with your license seat. This can be done with an On-Demand or Private Server licenses (not available if you are using the legacy Private License Server (PLS)

Starting in Version: 18.0
Up to Version: Current

Solution Details

To use a seat of an available license in this mode, click on the license in the grid on the license management page in Altium Designer, then click on the Roam control in the area below the grid.

Here's a link to the relevant section of documentation on On-Demand licensing that covers Roaming (with more detail and pictures):
For private server licenses, once connected to an Altium Infrastructure Server (AIS) or on premise managed content server such as Concord Pro, the client steps are the same as for an On-Demand license.

A license seat that is being Roamed is not released back to the license pool when you sign out or close Altium Designer.
This feature can be turned off by your administrator, so if it's not working, check with your administrator first.   This information may be useful to them:

As with On-Demand mode, release of a license that is being roamed is performed by signing in, selecting the license in the grid and clicking on the Release link, in the area below the grid.  You can also force-release a seat from another computer.  See Releasing a License Remotely:
