Launched From Automation Hub

If you run Task Capture from Automation Hub, the license applied will be corresponding to your Automation Hub pricing plan:

  • you run Task Capture from an Automation Hub trial instance, a trial license type is assigned in Task Capture.
  • you run Task Capture from an Automation Hub standard instance, a standard license type is assigned in Task Capture.

    Important: If you run Task Capture from an Automation Hub instance integrated with Automation Cloud, the same rules for licensing from the above 2 bullet points will apply. For this scenario, in order to use the integration, you need to have installed Task Capture v2020.10.4 or above.
    Note: For details about updating the selected license model check the License Details section from the File page.

Launched From Test Manager

If you run Task Capture from Test Manager the license applied has a specific endDate of license validation. This is set up to 2 weeks starting with the day it is applied.

This signifies that, when Task Capture is launched from Test Manager, it can be used as a desktop tool for 2 weeks after which one of the below scenarios occurs:

  • In case you do not launch Task Capture from Test Manager again during this period of time (2 weeks), the license activation page is displayed in Task Capture and you need to select a different license type.
  • If you launch Task Capture from Test Manager during the 2 weeks time frame, the endDate is updated with this new start day and it's sent to Task Capture.

  1. Fill in this request form and Submit it.
  2. Our licensing team will remove the activation from the licensing server. Wait for their confirmation.
