Managing Your Licenses

Renewing or Updating Your License

  1. In Orchestrator, navigate to the License page at tenant level or host level. The License page is displayed.
  2. Click Update. A dialog window is displayed, prompting How would you like to update your license?.
    a. If your Orchestrator instance has internet access, select Online. The renewal is processed automatically.
    b. If your Orchestrator instance does not have internet access, select Offline and follow the steps for offline activation.

Important

You can only change your host license with a new one if the number of used licenses is equal or lower than that provided by the new license. For example, I have a license for 20 Attended Robots and all of them are distributed to my tenants. If I want to switch to a license for 10 Attended Robots, I am required to remove the licenses for at least 10 of my Robots in order to be able to upload the new license.

The expiration date of a new host license is not propagated at tenant level. The tenants keep the expiration date of the previous license. To fix this, you need to reallocate the licenses to your tenants.

Deactivating Your License

  1. In Orchestrator, navigate to the License page at tenant level or host level. The License page is displayed.
  2. Click Remove. A warning dialog is displayed prompting you to confirm the removal. Click No to cancel or Yes to confirm.
  3. Click Yes. If your Orchestrator instance has internet access the removal is processed automatically, Orchestrator returns to an unlicensed state and the license key activation is removed.
  4. If your Orchestrator instance does not have internet access, the Deactivate Offline window is displayed.
  5. Use the Download button to save a copy of the deactivation file.
  6. From any computer with an internet connection, navigate to the Activation Portal. Click Deactivate Your License.
  7. Use the Upload From File button to upload the deactivation file.
  8. Click the Deactivate License button. Deactivation is complete, your Orchestrator is returned to an unlicensed state and the license key activation is removed.

Allocating Licenses

Keep in mind that you can only allocate licenses to tenants at host level.

Note

This section only concerns enabled tenants which are to be licensed using a joint license, the host license. You cannot allocate licenses to a tenant which is using an individual license unless you first remove it.

From the Tenants page

  1. In the Tenants page, click the More Actions button for a tenant and select Allocate Licenses. The Allocate Licenses page is displayed.
    Note: If the tenant is licensed you must first remove the existing license before starting to allocate new ones.
  2. At the end of each row you can see the number of available licenses and their total number at host level. Allocate licenses as you wish, but keep in mind that you cannot exceed the maximum per category.
  1. Click Allocate. Note that the Tenants page has been updated according to your changes. Take into account that the Allocate button is only enabled if you make some changes.

From the License Page

  1. Click Allocate. The Allocate Licenses window is displayed.
  1. Choose the desired tenant from the Tenants drop-down list or simply fill in its name.
  2. Allocate the Robot licenses as needed, as long as they are within the limit of each category, and click Allocate. Note that the Allocate Licenses window is updated.

Removing Tenant Licenses

From the Tenants Page

Note

This page is only available at host level.

As this page represents a centralized location of all tenants, you can remove licenses for multiple of them.

  1. In the Tenants page, click the More Actions button for the tenant which concerns you and select Allocate Licenses. The Allocate Licenses window is displayed.
  2. For deleting the license from the tenant, click Remove. Note that the Remove button is only displayed for already licensed tenants. Click Yes to confirm when prompted. The Allocate Licenses window is updated.
  3. Click Close. Note the Tenants page is updated as well, and on the License column, your tenant is displayed as Unlicensed.

From the License Page

At Tenant Level

At Host Level

  1. Click Allocate. The Allocate Licenses window is displayed.
  2. Choose your tenant from the Tenants drop-down list or simply fill in the name of your tenant.
  3. Click Remove and then Yes when prompted. Note that the Allocate Licenses window is updated. Take into account that the Remove button is only displayed for licensed tenants.

Removing Your Host License

You can only remove the host license at host level, from the License page.

  1. In the License page, click Remove. A dialog box is displayed, asking if you are sure you want to perform this action.
