- Open the license window by pressing the licenses button (marker 1 below).
A notice will be displayed if no licenses are applied, which will be the case for new installations. If this notice is not displayed, that means a license has been applied to at least one product.
Press OK to proceed.
Press the Create License Request button (marker 1 below) if licenses have not yet been applied or if the existing licenses must be updated. Available licenses will be displayed on the License Administration screen. See Requesting a Portal License for more detail.
Fill in the contact information and press the generate button (marker 1 below) to create and save a license request file.
Send the license request file to Support (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include the following details:
- License File, including customer and partner details.
- Products to be licensed.
- Version to be licensed.
Support will endeavor to create a license within one business day.
Unzip, then install the license file provided by Support. This file will typically be the same as your server name. Press the
Import License Filebutton and select the license file sent by support.Warning: Installing a license will remove all previously assigned application licenses. Named user licenses will be maintained but application licenses will need to be re-applied. This may trigger metadata updates, which will force B1 users to log out and log back in.
Assign the desired licenses to each company using the Used check-box.Warning: Hana metadata installation can take much longer than SQL. Due to the in-memory nature of Hana databases, metadata can take several minutes to install for each Portal, even up to an hour or so.
Allow the system to proceed even if it looks like it's "not responding". For new installs, you can check on the progress in Hana Administration Console by selecting a count of the UDT tables from CUFD.
Select the profile (marker 1 below), then assign application licenses (marker 2 below). If prompted, confirm metadata installation prompts to install version-specific metadata.
Note that metadata installation will force all B1 users to log out and log back in, so ensure this is scheduled ahead of time to avoid B1 disruptions.
Once the Application license is installed, a user may be configured in B1, then assigned licenses in the named user license section.
