If you have activated and uploaded a license to Orchestrator, as explained here, all you have to do to start using a Robot is connect it to Orchestrator, and select the proper type. This is the recommended way of licensing your Robots.
There are multiple ways in which you can connect a Robot to Orchestrator:
- From Orchestrator and the Orchestrator Settings Window
- From the Command Line
- Using the Connection String
Each time a license is used, it is reflected, per type, in the Licensing page. Keep in mind that licenses are consumed differently depending on their type, as explained in the About Licensing page.
Activating a license from the Command Line is done through the LicenseTool utility.
You can activate a license on your Robot with the help of the Command Prompt as well. This type of activation is recommended when your Robot is not connected to Orchestrator.
Activation from the Command Line can be done both online and offline, as exemplified below:
C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\UiPath.LicenseTool.exe activate -l 9555-2303-2194-5598- when the machine is connected to the internet
C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\UiPath.LicenseTool.exe activate-offline -f c:\Downloads\license.txt- when the machine is not connected to the internet.
You can also license your Robot through a proxy. See here the detailed procedure.
