Configure Client for Concurrent License

Overview

Test Design Studio offers a concurrent license model.  Under this model, you configure a Concurrent License Monitor application that is responsible for tracking the total number of licenses that are in use.  Each Test Design Studio client is then configured to request a license from the monitor application.  The steps below define how to configure the license.

Information You Need

In order to connect to the Concurrent License Monitor, you will need to know the host name of the monitor as well as the TCP port number that has been configured to listen to license requests.  The default port number is 8085.  You will also need a license file that was distributed to your company for use with the concurrent license monitor.  This file is typically called 'tds20.concurrent.lic'.
In summary, you will need:

  • Host Name of Concurrent License Monitor
  • TCP Port Number
  • License File

Step 1 - Install Test Design Studio

Install the latest release of the Test Design Studio application for which you have a license.  The same installer is used for any of the license models.  After installation is complete, launch Test Design Studio.

Step 2 - License Wizard


When you launch Test Design Studio without a license already configured, the License Wizard will be displayed.  Click the 'Next' button to continue.

Step 3 - Choose Your License Model


For the concurrent license model, you will be configuring the License File that was provided to your oganization.  Select the option for 'I Have a License File to Apply'.

Step 4 - Apply License File


In the space provided, specify the full path of the License File that was provided to your organization.  You may use the 'Browse...' button to help locate the file.  When the full path has been entered, click the 'Next' button to continue.

Step 5 - Concurrent License Configuration


Since your license file is based on a concurrent license model, you will need to provide the 'Host Name' and 'TCP Port' that correspond to your Concurrent License Monitor.  When the information has been entered, click 'Next' to continue.

Step 6 - License Validated


If all the information has been correctly entered, you will receive a 'License Validated' confirmation.  If you do not receive this confirmation, confirm that you entered the correct 'Host Name' and 'TCP Port' for your Concurrent License Monitor.
