With the latest release of our Licensing Portal the look and feel has slightly changed, but the principles of the old Licensing Portal remain the same.
Besides a dynamic search, a better structure, there are many other improvements regarding the usability.
We are not going to stop here - instead we are planning to add several new, very helpful bulk operations to the Licensing Portal during the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned!
The Licensing Portal is now fully integrated into our M.App Exchange platform, so that you can manage licenses and users within the same system.
The well known URL to our licensing portal will now take you our M.App Exchange where you can you login.
Afterwards click on Manage > Licenses and the system will take you to the Licensing Portal (we consider this as an interim solution until an redirect issue has been fixed; of course is our goal that https://hexagongeospatial.force.com/licensingportal should take you straight to the Licensing Portal again)
After logging into the Licensing Portal (License Management) you will see two large buttons, View Claimed Licenses and Manage Licenses.
The following icons are also displayed.
“License Management Help Page” - Directs you to the eTraining > Licensing page of the Hexagon Geospatial
“Create Ticket” - Used to create a licensing support ticket.
“Switch Selected Account” - If ‘child’ accounts report up to your organization, this icon is used to switch to the licensing portal of ‘child’ accounts.
Search licenses by product name, Tag, Department or Contact.

b. Nine Tabs
The Create Licenses and Create Ticket tabs are always active. Other tab activation depends on the type of license/s selected.
Create Licenses: Selected when a license is to be created.
Request Re-host: Approval is needed to create a new Activation ID or .lic file. When approved this tab changes to Re-host Licenses.
Upgrade License: Upgrading to a new product version, Activation ID or .lic file (offline), does not require approval.
Downgrade License: Downgrading to an older product version requires approval. Once approved a new Activation ID or .lic file can be created.
Return License: When the Salesforce Asset freeze date does not exist, the license can be returned.
Download Licenses: When licenses are offline .lic files the files can be downloaded.
Email Licenses: Email License files to the contact.
Create Tickets: Used to submit licensing support tickets.
Change Attributes: Used to enter or edit Contact, Department and Tag information.
In the Details dialog, select the checkbox to the left of the license you created. Depending on the type of license and the options selected, when the license was created, tabs will become active.
This .lic file can then be entered into the Geospatial License Administration tool by selecting:
Select the View Claimed Licenses button. This will allow searches to be made, and licenses to be consolidated and emailed.
Email Licenses: Select the check box, to the left of one or more Product Name/s, and then select the Email Licenses button. Licenses will be emailed to the contact.
Offline licenses with the same Host ID can be consolidated into one .lic file.
