In this section, we will take a look at the manual license deactivation process in BizTalk360. Once you have manually activated the BizTalk360 license, you can choose to deactivate it in the absence of internet connection.
If in case you are decommissioning the server, please keep in mind that you MUST deactivate the active license(s). Failing to deactivate the license(s) will mean that you will not be able to use the same license on a different Production or Non Production environment. You will see an error message as "There is already an active license for this order number/license code. Please deactivate the current license".
In this case, when you reach out to our Licensing team, the deactivation/activation will be done free of cost for the first time. However, in future, if there is a request from the same company for the same problem, an admin fee of USD 100 will be applicable on each occasion to perform the deactivation/activation process.
