Licensing: Difference between Dev license and Enterprise license?

Hello,

I found the following link regarding free, cloud and enterprise licenses and I was wondering if a dev license is considered a Free license or an enterprise license:

Good information at Types of Splunk software licenses

In general, there are four types of licenses:
• The Enterprise license enables all enterprise features, such as authentication and distributed search.
• The Free license allows you a limited indexing volume and disables authentication, but is perpetual.
• The Forwarder license allows you to forward, but not index, data and enables authentication.
• The Beta license, typically enables enterprise features, but is restricted to Splunk Beta releases.

DavidHourani, I think you are referring to the Enterprise trial license

When you download Splunk for the first time, you are asked to register. Your registration authorizes you to receive an Enterprise trial license, which allows a maximum indexing volume of 500 MB/day. The Enterprise trial license expires 60 days after you start using Splunk. If you are running with a Enterprise trial license and your license expires, Splunk requires you to switch to a Splunk Free license.

It allows a maximum indexing volume of 500 MB/day as we can see in the "official" documentation.

The 500MB is the Free license not the developer license.
You can say "woohoo" for that info ^^

It's really weird as the "official" documentation doesn't refer to it - Types of Splunk software licenses

I think you are referring to the "free" version ; -)
