Licensing Cascading Behavior of Autodesk Manufacturing Products and Suites

Solution:

The License Cascading enables a product to consume alternate licenses if its preferred license is not available

A product will first try to acquire its native license

If the native license is unavailable, the product will look for higher-level (e.g., suite) licenses.
