Requesting a License

If you are an existing BizTalk360 Product Specialist, you can request for a Product Specialist license from our licensing team (by writing an email to license@BizTalk360.com). You will receive a License and Service Certificate issued by BizTalk360 licensing team (as shown below) with the details required to activate the license for the environment.

Deactivating the Product Specialist License (and activating in a different environment)

There may be occasions when you wish to use the license key in a different environment (of the same type) for specific reasons. This is possible by deactivating the license (from the current environment) and activating it with a different environment. Let's consider a scenario - We have activated a environment BT360DOC01-PDSP with the license key. Say, we have one more non-production environment (BT360DOC01-Non Pro), and we want to use the same keys in this environment for some testing purposes. In this case, we need to deactivate the keys from the BT360DOC01-PDSP environment and activate them in BT360DOC01- Non Pro environment.

  1. Log in to BizTalk360 (as Super User)
  2. Click Licenses from the left menu
  3. Considering the scenario discussed above, you will notice that the license is active for BT360DOC01-PDSP. The license status for BT360DOC01-Non Pro displays the status as Unknown.
  4. Click the Red Power icon against BT360DOC01-PDSP or select the check box against the environment name and click the Deactivate button to deactivate the existing license
  5. The environment will be deactivated and the Activation Status will display the status as Deactivated and the Expiry status will display status as Unknown
  6. Click the Green tick mark against BT360DOC01-Non Pro or select the check box against the environment name and click the Activate button
  7. Enter the Order Number and License code, select the terms and conditions check box, and click Activate 
  8. You will notice that the same license code will be activated in BT360DOC01-Non Pro
