Manage Floating Commercial License Seats

A floating commercial license comes with a limited number of seats. Each seat entitles you to run a Remain API Studio instance. If you run out of seats then an already activated license seat can be used on some other machine by deactivating it then activating it on that other machine!

First, go to the Settings/License Management editor.

Deactivate your Seat

To deactivate your active seat click the link: Free this license seat by deactivating it. The license status on the top right of this editor will show Deactivated upon successful action.

Manage All Seats

If your license is a floating one, you can view all seats on all machines/computers using this license. This way, you can manage them by de/activating the seats you want. To do so, click the Manage license seats link beside the seats count label.

Enter the seats manager access token (you can find it in the license purchase confirmation email). You can't find it. No problem! Just click the link Please send me this access token at the bottom of the wizard. An email with this license seats manager access token will be sent to the buyer of this license.

Once you enter the access token, click Finish. If the authentication succeeds, you'll be shown the overview where you can manage your license seats. Enjoy!
