How to claim a node-locked 2016 license from the Licensing Portal?


  1. Login in to the Licensing Portal using your Hexagon Geospatial Community login/password via the URL:


  1. Click the ‘Manage Licenses’ button to display the list of available products.


  1. Find the row for the Product that you intend to license by using the Search field to filter by product name if needed.
  • The ‘Available for Licensing’ column can be used to see the number of unclaimed licenses that remain for the product.
  • The 'License Type' column value of 'NL'' can be used to see which products are licensed as node-locked. 


  1. Click on the row for the Product that want to license. This will open the Details page for that product with a list of command buttons.


  1. Click on the ‘Create Licenses’ button to open the ‘Create Licenses’ dialog.


  1. On the ‘Create Licenses’ dialog use the ‘Select Target Version’ dropdown list to select the desired ‘2016 (16.0-4)’ version. The dialog title will now appear as ‘Create Licenses - 16.0’.


  1. Use the ‘Select Quantity’ field to specify the number of licenses desired.


  1. Use the ‘Type’ field to select the method being used to license the product. If you are using the Host ID shown when starting the application, then you would choose the ‘COMPOSITE’ type.


  1. Use the ‘Host Id’ field to enter the Composite ID of the machine where the license will be used.


  1. In the ‘Set Contact’ field you can optionally enter a contact to assign to the license that is being created. The Contact list is searchable for contacts associated to your account and you can use the ‘Create New Contact’ button to create new contacts here as well. The email address for the contact entered in this field will also be sent a copy of the email containing the license file if you use the Email option to send the license to yourself.


  1. To have the license emailed to you (and emailed to the assigned Contact), click the Email Licenses checkbox labeled ‘Yes, please’.


  1. A new license row will now be visible on the Details page with the 'Activation Id / Host Id' column populated with the Host ID that you used when creating the license. Note that an entry for this license will also be visible in the Licensing Portal on the ‘View Claimed Licenses’ page which provides a summary view of all claimed licenses for your account.


  1. To download the license, you can select the checkbox to the left of the row containing the desired license and then click the ‘Download Licenses’ button. There will be a slight delay while the license file is being generated and then a ‘Save As’ dialog will appear. Use the ‘Save As’ dialog to choose the folder where you want to save the file and then click the ‘Save’ button.
