    Field Name Description
    Server License Type Displays the license type of the server.
    Fixed Write Licenses Displays the total number of Fixed licenses on the server.
    Floating Write Licenses Displays the total number of Floating licenses on the server.
    Max Forms Allowed on Server Displays the number of forms your license allows you to create on the server. If this field reads Unlimited, you can create as many forms as you want.
    AR System Server ID Displays the BMC Remedy AR System identifier code attached to the server license.
    Submitter Mode

    Defines the conditions under which submitters can modify the requests they initially submit (that is, where their names are in the Submitter field). Select one of the following options:

    • Locked — Users can modify requests they submit without a write license. This does not apply to users with a Restricted Read license who cannot modify requests under any circumstances. In the locked submitter mode, after the entry is submitted, the value in the Submitter field cannot be changed.
    • Changeable — (Default) Users must have a write license to modify requests.


    Changes to the Submitter Mode settings do not take effect until the server is stopped and restarted.

  4. Click Apply.
