Service Manager License Management


This document is intended exclusively for customers using the Product name - ev itsm.png on-premises version. In the SaaS-based version, license management is integrated in the service offering and does not require the sending of a license file.

A license, established by a software publisher, is a contractual document describing the usage and distribution conditions of a software. It only gives the right to use a version of the software. 

  • A license is defined for each company wishing to use Product name - ev itsm.png.
    • It takes the form of an encrypted text file containing the name and account number of the company as well as the list of menus it can access and the associated restrictions. 
    • It is validated when Product name - ev itsm.png is accessed. Users will be unable to log in if the account number read in the license does not correspond to the actual account number of the company.
  • The Product name - ev itsm.png license must be updated:
    • When Product name - ev itsm.png is installed for the first time, to activate all business modules acquired by the company and to grant usage rights on each workstation where Product name - ev itsm.png is installed.
    • When usage conditions are modified after installation of the software, e.g. new business modules, additional concurrent user connections per module, greater number of assets managed in Discovery, etc.
  • License usage rules are defined to determine the number of licenses used when users log in to Product name - ev itsm.png and Product name - ev sas.png.

Notes

  • To perform the first installation of the license, you should use the login and password of the ADMINEZV / ADMIN system account. This enables you to access the Administration menu alone.
  • The name of the license file depends on the Product name - ev itsm.png database for which the license should be integrated.
             Example documentation icon EN.png  50004.txt file is intended for production database 50004.
  • You can also view information on the active license in the Home page of the Administration menu.

Caution

  • You must delete the space in the data entry field before pasting the contents of the license file.
  • The login and password fields are case-sensitive.
