The following examples show settings for options file parameters for a specific product using that product's package code. For example, the following statement uses the package code from a subscription with multi-user access licence for AutoCAD 2016 (64300ACD_T_F) to reserve one license of AutoCAD 2016-2013 for a specific user:
RESERVE 1 64300ACD_T_F USER smithj
By using the package code, you apply that options file parameter to all eligible versions of the product according to the previous version rights of the subscriber.
Sometimes you may use package codes in your options file and your licence file may contain both perpetual or maintenance plan and subscription licences with multi-user access for the same product. In this case, you need to include other parameters to accommodate the subscription licences with multi-user access. The following statements reserve one licence of AutoCAD 2016-2013 for a specific user, whether it is a perpetual licence on a maintenance plan or a subscription licence with multi-user access:
RESERVE 1 64300ACD_F USER smithj RESERVE 1 64300ACD_T_F USER smithj
After you add parameters for subscription licences with multi-user access, you don't need to modify the options file when the subscription is renewed or a version is released.
Use a product feature code (for example, 86445ACD_2016_0F) only if you are setting an options file parameter for a perpetual licence that is not on a maintenance plan. For perpetual licences on a maintenance plan and subscription licences with multi-user access, always use the package code. The following statement uses a feature code to reserve five seats of a perpetual licence of AutoCAD 2016 (not on a maintenance plan) for a specific group:
RESERVE 5 86445ACD_2016_0F GROUP EngineeringGroup
