Management Center

Licensing

Management Center enables you to manage individual User Workspace Manager product licenses, and full suite licenses for computers across your Enterprise. Product licenses are managed using the User Workspace Manager Licensing console when the Management Center is not being used.

Licensing allows you to:

  • Add licenses for User Workspace Manager products.
  • Import and export licenses in MSI file format.

License Agreement

License details are included in the License Agreement which is issued when an order for User Workspace Manager software has been completed.

The License Agreement includes the following information:

Product, Feature, and Version Details

  • Issue Date
  • Expiry Date
  • Customer Name
  • Serial ID

Together with the license agreement you will receive either a TXT file or a LIC file. Use file to add or import the license.

If a product license or an evaluation license expires you will receive limited or no functionality on the endpoint. An Event is raised for each unlicensed product.

Managing Licenses

The following procedures describe how to add a license and import or export a license.

Add a License

  1. In the Management Console, select the Home navigation button.
  2. Select the Licensing node.
  3. In the Actions panel click Add License.

    The Add License Key dialog displays.

  4. Enter the license key and click Add.

    If you received a TXT file from Ivanti, open the file and copy the license key, paste it in to the Add License Key dialog.

    If you received a LIC file from Ivanti, refer to the Import a License File section.

    Details of the license are displayed in the console and the license key is added to the following location: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\AppSense\Licenses

  5. Some license types may need activating. Click Activate License, enter the activation code and click Enter.

    Once a license is active the icon changes to indicate the current license state.

  6. Any product license added to the Management Center, is automatically deployed to the managed endpoint at time of polling. Managed endpoints are any devices which have the Deployment Agent installed.

    The endpoint automatically uses the first valid license if finds. You do not have to assign a particular license to a particular group or endpoint.

Export a License File

Export licenses to MSI or LIC file format for saving to other computers which can be remotely accessed.
