Node-locked Licenses Generation

Node-locked licenses can be generated using two different processes depending on the target system configuration.

Online Provisioning

The preferred way.

The online provisioning applies to every system being able to connect at least once to the Accelize web service.

The procedure is fairly simple:

  • Add credential file.

  • Add the Node-locked parameters to the configuration file.

  • Run your application

Refer to Configuration for information about credential and configuration files.

At first execution, your application will connect the the Accelize web service and download the node-locked license file in the folder configured in the configuration file.

On every following execution, the application will load the license file from the folder configured in the configuration file.

Offline Provisioning

The offline provisioning only applies to completely offline systems.

The procedure is the following:

  • Add the Node-locked parameters to the configuration file (refer to Configuration).

  • Remove url from licensing section of the configuration file.

  • Run your application once

  • The execution will fail by lack of license file but will generate a license request file in the license_dir folder configured in the configuration file.

  • Send the license request file to Accelize support (refer to Contacts).

  • The Accelize support will generate a license file for you.

  • Copy the license file in the folder configured in the configuration file.

  • Run your application.

Note

In a future version of the Accelize Portal, you will be able to generate the license file yourself by uploading the license request file from a dedicated menu.
