Hi,

Considering that the deployment server, Search Heads, Universal Forwarder and Deployers are full Splunk Enterprise Installs, how does the licensing work ?

I know that indexer licenses are based upon the data ingestion, so what are search head, Deployer, Deployment Server and Heavy Forwarder licenses based on ? 

Thanks,

All those are used only feature part of license not ingesting part. You should use central license server to share license to all of your splunk enterprise nodes.
