Activating additional or new licenses

If you use an online license server, the licenses are automatically synchronized. You do not need to make any settings. You only need to take action if you operate a network license server

Activating new licenses in the network license server

If you would like to import a new license into your network license server, or if an existing license has been renewed, you must follow the steps below.

In the first step, open “TKI Licensing”.

Click on “License server REST APIs” in the main menu.


From there, you can select your license server using the selection icon ˅.


After your selection, you can see the information for your license server. The form is extended by clicking on “License information”.


You can then activate your new permissions/licenses


For this, you need an activation ID. This can be found in our license portal “FlexNet Operations”.

Open the customer portal in a browser:  

Once you have registered, you will be able to list all the stored “permissions”. There, you can view your permissions/licenses with the available quantities.


Apply the activation ID in TKI Licensing. If necessary, change the number of licenses to be activated according to your permission/order. 

Click on the “Activate license online” button to activate the licenses. 

Check for successful activation

Once the permissions have been successfully activated, the licenses are no longer listed under “Permissions” in FlexNet Operations, but the license server can be seen under “Devices”. 

You can check whether the permissions/licenses have been successfully added by clicking on “Show all licenses” in the main menu of TKI Licensing. 

Please note that TKI Licensing takes up to one minute to sync the activations.

You have now successfully activated your new licenses.
