How does Liquibase Pro work?

Every organization running Liquibase Pro to manage database instances on its own servers or cloud accounts must have a license. The price is based on the numbers of database instances managed by Liquibase Pro. You can use Liquibase Pro with any number of database instances as long as the number of instances is less than or equal to the licensed amount.

How do I count database instances?

Many databases have different definitions of databases, instances, schemas, users, etc.  To eliminate any confusion, we want to clearly define exactly what we measure for licensing Liquibase Pro.
