Licensing for the PI Data Access products is divided into development and runtime licenses. Developers and integrators obtain development licenses for most PI Data Access components through their individual membership to the OSIsoft PI Developers Club program.
The PI System Access (PSA) license enables end users to access PI System data, including time-series data in PI Servers and asset metadata in PI AF Servers. PSA is a runtime license to access PI System data using any of the programmatic access methods or UI controls and dialogs licensed through the PSA, including PI SDK.
