For single users

At a minimum, an internet connection will be required for initial validation and for any changes to the license key.  After the license key is verified, the application will check each time it is run. If it does not have internet later it will still run with a locally cached version of the key for validation, but any changes will need an internet connection to validate. 

For concurrent users An internet connection is required when the application is started to get a license from the allocated pool of licenses in the cloud. For larger customers, the option of an on prem licenses server is an option as an add-on.
