Managing licenses


1. Overview

This article shows you how to add a new license for Dundas BI and view your current license.

Once you've added a valid retail license, the evaluation watermark should disappear from your Dundas BI screens the next time you log on.

Dundas BI version 6 and above can automatically update an active subscription license when a newer version is available.

2. Add a license

Follow these steps once you've obtained a new license file or text from Dundas.

Go the Administration area using the main menu on the left. In newer versions this can be found under Profile.

In the Admin screen, expand Licensing along the left side of the screen, and click Licenses. Click Add New.

Clicking Add new on the Licenses page

Most of the space in the dialog that opens is taken up by an empty text box.

Click into this text box and paste the license text obtained from Dundas. You can paste by pressing Ctrl+V or V on your keyboard.

Click Save to add the license. The licenses list should be updated with the new entry.

Log out and log back on for the changes to take effect.

3. View licenses

Go to the same Licenses page described above to see a list of the licenses currently installed.

Select any license in the list and click Details in the toolbar to open the details in a dialog (double-click as a shortcut). Scroll down to view all the details of the license such as:

  • Status of the license (e.g., Valid or Expired)
  • Product Version
