Use Access Code to Protect your Floating License from Unauthorized Access

With Visual Paradigm’s floating license you can define the access code to control the access of the license. The access code basically is a password and it server for 2 main purpose. First, it helps to prevents unauthorized access to your license key and only when user have the right access code can use it, which increased the level of security. Second is to divide your floating licenses into groups. Think about if group A and B both acquire licenses from the same VP Server, group A may use up all the keys, leaving no available license for group B, when there is no control. Access code solves this problem by enforcing the need of supplying a valid password when trying to acquiring license from server by client.

  1. Open the browser and go to your VP Server.
