License management

When installing Net iD Portal, a trial license with a 90 days grace period is created. The trial license is valid for up to 10 users.

When you acquire and implement a subscription license, the trial license is removed and replaced by the subscription license. The number of users and validity period depends on your subscription.

License validation

To make sure that the license is valid, several validation checks are done:

  • TimerService continously checks the license of an organization and compares the number of registered users with AmountMax. As default, a notification email will be sent to the email address registered to the license if more than 90 % of registered users is reached. To modify this default value, see Configure the license validation check. For information about the email address linked to the license, see the attribute Email in License information.

  • Checks that the number of users is not greater than the allowed number of users when creating Enroll tasks. If the max number of users in reached, the error NPR025 is shown.

  • Checks that the license is still valid when creating Enroll tasks. If the license is not valid, the error NPR024 is shown.

Configure the license validation check

To specify when a notification message is sent, and what information it shall give, the following XML code can be added or modified.

<GenericSettings>
  <License>
    <Notification>
      <Server>
        <Amount>
          <Percent>90</Percent> (1)
          <Message>The license begins to reach its maximum limit.</Message> (2)
        </Amount>
      </Server>
    </Notification>
  </License>
</GenericSettings>
1 The ratio between the number of registered users and the license’s AmountMax value, when a message should be sent. The Percent value is given in percent.
2 The message shown when the Percent value is reached.
