Activating AnyLogic using Team License Server

This article describes how to lease and return the team license for the AnyLogic installation on the end-user’s computer.
For information about Team License Server and its administration, see the following website: Team License Server.

Leasing a license

  1. Run AnyLogic. If your product is not licensed yet, the AnyLogic Activation Wizard will open automatically. Otherwise, open the AnyLogic Activation Wizard by choosing Help > Activate Product from the AnyLogic menu.
  2. In the AnyLogic Activation Wizard, select Lease a license from the AnyLogic License Server option.
  3. Specify the server connection settings:
    • AnyLogic License Server — the address (IP or host machine name) of Team License Server without the protocol: for example, 10.1.100.15 or hostname.
    • Port — the number of the port that is used to connect to the server (8443 by default).
    Consult your system administrator to make sure that your settings are valid. Click Next when finished.
  4. AnyLogic will request a key from Team License Server.
    If the connection to the server is successful and there are available licenses, the server will generate the activation key and send it to AnyLogic on the target machine. AnyLogic stores this key in the user’s folder. No further connection to the server is required to keep working with AnyLogic.
  5. The license is now leased. You will see the corresponding message on the last page of the AnyLogic activation wizard.
  6. Click Finish to close the wizard.

If all licenses are currently leased, you should contact the administrator to find the person who can drop their license. When a license becomes available, you should follow the scenario above to lease it yourself.

Dropping the leased license

  1. Run AnyLogic.
  2. To open the AnyLogic Activation Wizard dialog, select Help > Activate Product from the AnyLogic menu.
  3. In the dialog, select the Drop leased server license option.
  4. Click Next.
  5. If the connection to the server has been established successfully, the license will return to the server and you will see the corresponding message on the last page of the AnyLogic activation wizard.
  6. Click Finish to close the wizard.
