As you know, Acumatica license restricts number of tenants that you can have on the instance. Depend on size it can be 3, 10, 20 and so on. If you create more tenants than is allowed by your license, system will hide it on login screen and write a message “Companies list is restricted due to the license”.
This is correct behavior for production instances, where you entering your businesses data, but what should you do if you want to test something (import data, close financial year, implement new module).
Acumatica tracks in the system 2 types of tenants: Production and Test. Your license limits only amount of production tenants, but you can create unlimited number of Test tenants. For test tenants licensing engine will apply the same restrictions like in the trial mode – there is just 2 concurrently working users for all test tenants.
To change your tenant to test you can use Companies screen in System Management module.
When you have changed it, you will not be able to revert it from the user interface (But it can be done on the database level by updating of CompanyType in the Company table). System wil inform you about type of selected tenant.
Please note, that all Tenants with Demo data have ‘Test Company’ flag by default.
Have a nice experience with Acumatica!
