When you apply the vRealize Code Stream standalone license to a vRealize Automation Appliance, you enable the vRealize Code Stream functions. If you enter the vRealize Code Stream and vRealize Automation licenses, you can enable the vRealize Automation and vRealize Code Stream features.

You can use the vRealize Code Stream standalone license to enable the Artifact Management, Release Management, Release Dashboard, Approval Services, and Advanced Service Designer features. You can apply the vRealize Code Stream license in conjunction with the vRealize Automation Standard, Advanced, or Enterprise licenses.

Overlapping features in vRealize Automation and vRealize Code Stream are combined. For example, if you apply a vRealize Code Stream license to an existing vRealize Automation appliance, the common Advanced Service Designer feature works as is in the appliance.
