Manage licenses

Licensing for your installed IBM software and customized packages is administered using the Manage Licenses wizard in the IBM Installation Manager. The Manage Licenses wizard displays license information for each of your installed packages.

Trial licenses that came with the 8.0 and later versions of some Rational products expire 30 or 60 days after installation. You need to activate your product in order to use it after the expiration date.

Use the Manage Licenses wizard, you can upgrade trial versions of an offering to a licensed version by importing a product activation kit. You can also enable Floating license enforcement for offerings with trial or permanent licenses to use floating license keys from a license server.
