Subscription FAQs

What products constitute the ForgeRock Identity Platform?

The ForgeRock platform consists of four core products:

Is ForgeRock’s Identity Platform open source?

Yes. The ForgeRock Identity Platform is a 100 percent open source solution. Our source code is made available under the Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL) Version 1.0, produced by Sun Microsystems and based on the Mozilla Public License (MPL), version 1.1.

What are the conditions for the ForgeRock CDDL?

The CDDL is an Open Source Initiative-approved license. The terms of the CDDL can be read here.

Can I access the ForgeRock Identity Platform source code?

The CDDL requires us to make source code available to whomever the binaries are distributed. Under the ForgeRock model, major releases (e.g., 10.0, 11.0, 12.0) will be made publicly available along with the source code. Minor releases and maintenance releases (e.g., 10.1, 10.1.1, 11.1, 11.1.1) and the respective source code will be made available to subscribing customers only. Non-customers will need to wait until the next major release.

What is a ForgeRock Identity Platform enterprise release?

Our enterprise products are fully productized, off-the-shelf identity solutions that are developed, tested, and supported by the ForgeRock engineering, services, and support teams. Enterprise products are released under a commercial license that allows developers to freely use them in development environments, in POCs, or to simply “kick the tires.” For production use, a subscription is required. ForgeRock does not have a separate community version.

Do I need to pay to access an enterprise release?

No. Anyone can download the major versions of our enterprise releases at no cost and begin using them. We grant users an unlimited right to use enterprise products for developing, testing, prototyping, and/or demonstrating applications. Completed proof-of-concepts require a subscription. Only customers have access to minor and maintenance releases.

How do I access patches, updates, and sustaining releases to an enterprise release?

Bug fixes, patches, and maintenance releases are only available to subscription customers. They can be downloaded from the ForgeRock customer portal.

What does a ForgeRock subscription include?

A ForgeRock subscription is a bundled offering that includes a software license, support, legal indemnification, and access to all product releases (major, minor, and maintenance releases).

How does ForgeRock charge for subscriptions?

ForgeRock subscriptions are priced on a per-user basis. Pricing varies based on whether it is being deployed for internal use or external use.

How can I purchase an enterprise subscription?

You can obtain a quote from a ForgeRock representative by contacting our sales team via our web site.

When do I need to get a ForgeRock subscription?

A subscription license is required when any product or component of the ForgeRock platform is in production. A subscription is not required for staging, testing, proof-of-concepts, or application prototyping.

What makes ForgeRock’s development team unique?

ForgeRock’s powerful R&D is driven by a team of dedicated, experienced, and passionate engineers who have deep experience in building out enterprise software products. Many are pioneers in developing Identity Management and security products and were responsible for deploying some of the earliest Identity Management solutions. ForgeRock is focused on innovation through design, supporting the latest advancements such as OAuth2, REST, and SCIM services.

With a subscription to the ForgeRock platform, our customers have access to enterprise-ready products as well as our team of leading engineers, who are experienced in building and deploying highly scalable identity solutions.
