WebConfig - Manage EA Floating Licenses

The Manage EA Floating Licenses page allows you to manage Enterprise Architect (and Add-in) floating licenses.

Important: All communications to the Pro Cloud's Floating License Server are performed via HTTPS, therefore to use the Pro Cloud Server's Floating License Server functionality at least one Port has to be configured to use the HTTPS protocol and a valid certificate/private key file is defined in the Pro Cloud Server's Services folder.  See the Advanced SSL topic for more details.

This page provides the following information and options.

License Server Settings

The License Server Settings section allows you to adjust settings for the handling of Floating Licenses.

After adjusting these settings click the Apply button to save/apply these options.

Key leases expire after

Enter a numerical value, then select either Days or Weeks from the dropdown list.

This determines when a checked out key is automatically returned to the keystore.

Auto Checkin

When enabled, if a user closes Enterprise Architect then their key will be immediately returned to the keystore.

When disabled, closing Enterprise Architect will not be automatically returned, instead the key remains checked out to the user for amount of time defined by the 'Key leases expire after'.

Typically the Auto Checkin option would be enabled it users need to work offline for periods of time, otherwise the option should be enabled to make the make most efficient use of shared keys.

To add keys, enter one or more key into the "Enter Floating License/s" field, then click OK.

When adding multiple keys in the field at once, each key should be on a separate line.

Group Configuration

The Cloud Server allows you to define groups which only have access to a set number of keys for a specific product. This is done by directly editing the ssflsgroup.config file on the Cloud Server.

See the Floating License Server Install and Config topic for details.
