Manage License Keys for the BA Server

File:/grBaservStepAddLicenses.png

License keys enable you to run Pentaho products. Your Pentaho Welcome Kit contains license keys, which are stored in .lic files. Each Pentaho product has its own .lic file. If you did not receive your welcome kit, or if you have lost the .lic files, contact your Pentaho support representative. If you do not yet have a support representative, contact your Pentaho sales representative.

Here are the tasks you perform in the User Console to manage license keys.

When you are done, please go on to the next stop on the Guide Post graphic.

Install License Keys

  1. Copy your license files to a convenient location.
  2. Log into the User Console. The first time you log in, the console takes you straight to the license page to install Pentaho licenses.
