Cloud Floating QLM Pro - Limit Total Number of Users for a Single License & useActivation
Implementing Cloud based floating license with QLM Pro. Have it working well but would like to limit the number of computers that can "activate" to use a single available license. Give customer one Activation Key and they give it to 10 users. Each user at some point "activates", 10 unique activations, but only a single person can use, check out, the license at a time. If an 11th person tries to "activate", 11 unique activations, they are not allowed to. Seems like there is no way to limit the number of people that have access to the single available license because each time a user releases the cloud license it does not "remember" the unique activation count.
Also am not clear on the "useActivation" overload that is in the ReadLicense call. Thought perhaps this would allow me to implement what I am trying.
There's no way to prevent someone that has the Activation Key from grabbing a floating license, if it's available.
useActivationCount is a recent addition and is not related to your requirement. useActivationCound handles situations where the same user launches your application multiple times from the same computer. Each time your app is launched, we increment the activationCount. Each time your application exits, we decrement the activationCount. When the last instance of your app exits, we deactivate the license so that it can be used by another user.Comment actions
