Among the various Salesforce User Licenses, there exist the following Community-specific types.
- Customer Community
- Customer Community Login
- Partner Community
- Partner Community Login
What is the difference between the “Customer Community” and “Customer Community Login” licenses? Same question applies to the “Partner Community” and “Partner Community Login” licenses.
I think that the difference is related to the two ways that Community licenses can be purchased, either as a block of “User Accounts”, or as a block of “Logins per Month”.
I’m guessing that the “Customer/Partner Community Login” license type is related to the “Logins per Month” purchase option, but would like confirmation of this by anyone in the know.
I’m not easily finding a confirming link, but your guess is correct – the “Login” licenses are for logins-per-month pricing, and the plain “Community” licenses are for named-user licensing. I just took a training on Communities implementation where this was covered.
