Advisory: License Enforcement Changes – REST and SOAP

Beginning with the release of InterSystems IRIS® data platform 2022.3, InterSystems corrected the license enforcement mechanism to include REST and SOAP requests. Due to this change, environments with non-core-based licenses that use REST or SOAP may experience greater license utilization after upgrading. To determine if this advisory applies to your InterSystems license, follow the instructions in the FAQ linked below.

This table summarizes the enforcement:

ProductREST & SOAP requests included in license enforcement?
InterSystems Caché®Yes
InterSystems Ensemble®No
InterSystems IRIS, InterSystems IRIS® for Health, and Health Connect prior to 2022.3No
InterSystems IRIS, InterSystems IRIS for Health, and Health Connect 2022.3 and laterYes

Customers have requested consistency in enforcement between Caché and IRIS. This change aligns licensing enforcement for REST and SOAP requests with Terms & Conditions; it also provides consistency moving forward across all InterSystems products. Planning for upgrades that cross the 2022.3 threshold should consider the potential impact of this change.

To help understand this change's impact, InterSystems is providing resources, including temporary mitigation. For more information, see:

The relevant product change for reference is DP-417320.

If you have any questions regarding this advisory or are interested in temporary mitigation, please contact your InterSystems Account Manager or InterSystems Worldwide Response Center (WRC).
