Activating License Automatically

Overview

This article details the process of activating a DNN license automatically when the application needs a valid license.

 

Prerequisites

  • Log in to the instance with your Superuser/Host account.
  • Invoice number(s) sent to you in an email after your purchase. Each license has its own invoice number (e.g., INV00x-1, INV00x-2, INV00x-3). If you are unable to find the required information, contact Customer Support.

  • Email Address associated with each invoice.

  • You may need to modify your firewall settings to allow a query to the DNN licensing web service:
