No separate licence is required, no, for DEX. Running tests in a DEX environment does consume a licence. We encourage clients to schedule tests after hours when a licence isn't needed for designing automated tests so that the licence consumed by DEX does not impact test design and build work. If you are running tests during a time when a licence is needed for test design and build work then you will need to purchase another licence for the DEX client to use.

Yes DEX uses an execution license. Execution licenses come in packs and cost lesser than development licenses. If you have an execution license as part of your license then DEX machine Tosca automatically consumes the execution license otherwise it will go and use a development license.
We're looking at a Tosca-Copado CI/CD solution for a particular client but I've seen that Copado doesn't support Tosca (April 2022).
Is anyone out there doing this at the moment (or aware of a plan by Tricentis to do this)? Any suggestions for alternative CI/CD solutions that integrate well with TOSCA?
*This is a high-level requirement at the moment as the project is still in...

Tosca can be integrated with any CI/CD Tool in a similar Way
Distributed execution in Tosca: Distributed Execution in Tosca is used to send test events with Execution Lists to the Tosca Distribution Server.
The Tosca Distribution server distributes Execution Lists among several free agents (clients) to execute them. Or, it ...

Thanks, @Aditya Chakradhar Nanduri for your article.
Hi @Nigel Powell, @Mangesh pangrekar, @Vinayak Bandewar, @reviewer1183092, @Roberto Forlani, @Test Process Consultant and @gagneet,

@Jesús Antonio Santos Giraldo; both companies deliver excellent tools & services. It's going to come down to your use cases.
If you choose the wrong tool for your use case the risks are: Loss of time, money and opportunities. That's not going to be the tool's fault.
Tips that may help you in deciding:
- Use your current tools / last tools as benchmark to determine your future needs.
- Ask questions, here are a few to get you started:
-- What are your requirements?
-- Pros and cons of our current tools.
-- How much time do you want to spend developing and maintaining test scripts (assuming you want to automate)
--Who will work with the tool?
-- What do they have to say about their experience with current / past tools?
- Build a matrix based on feedback received, decide which points really matter in your matrix.
- Inform your org of the research you've done and ask for more input
- Go with a few key folks who work with / worked with the tools you are targeting and have a meeting with Tricentis / Panaya.
- Tell your story and ask how their tool can meet your need.
- Go back to your leadership and share what you learned,
- See if you can get a trial from the toolmakers. ;-) and try out a real world test.
- Make a documented decision on why tool X and not tool Y

Hope this helps
Panaya and Tricentis are both good. Could you share more info on your use case and what are your key selection criteria ?
One of the biggest differences is that Tricenties offers mainly test automation capabilities, while Panaya Test Dynamix offers test management capabilities (which could be integrated with test automation tools if you are looking into automation for your project).
I believe one of the benefits of Panaya when it comes to an upgrade project is that it provides the benefits of both impact analysis and test management capabilities, so you could know what to test and get the benefit of risk-based testing.
@Jesús Antonio Santos Giraldo , can you please share more details about your case as suggested by @John so that our peers can assist you with your queston?
