Improvements to License Key Center

By Archive User posted Fri November 10, 2017 08:36 PM

On September 22nd we announced upcoming changes to the Licensing Portal targeted at improving user experience with the tool. As a first step, we have already made access to License Key Center easier by adding links to the Support Page and Passport Advantage. You can refer to our previous blog with steps to access License Key Center.

Next week we will be releasing additional updates and improvements to the License Key Center. Among them you will see these updates that should make your experience with License Key Center easier and more efficient:

• LIVE AS OF NOVEMBER 15, 2017: Easier access to the License Key Center with a bookmarkable link

• Modernized and refreshed UI

• Improved user experience through simplifying key creation process by optimizing number of clicks

• Intuitive page review for license prior to generation

• Improved arrangement of products and versions on page

Please note that we will be further refining the License Key Center and the below screenshots of updated license code generation are a preview (testing environment) showing the initial set of improvements that will subsequently be further refined.

A new feature of the improved LKC UI is a Welcome Screen which keep the environment crisp and organized:

Once selecting 'generate authorization code' we are presented with a tile layout to select the product to license:

After that, you will select the needed version and license type (authorized or concurrent) - please note that the layout conveniently separates the supported and unsupported versions for greater clarity:

Then, select the codes to license:

Generating a code is easy - an intuitive layout with all your selections on one page:

After making selections, you can review and generate code:

Please be sure to check back on our community page to keep posted of the latest updates.

Hi Mlakirov,
Thank you for your answer; but I selected that option and when adding the generated code, replace the others.
I will create a PMR.

Thanks a lot.

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for your question. In the welcome screen, select the 'Add Feature to Your Installed Product' tile.

Hi Mlakirov,
Thanks for the information.
So, I have a doubt:
In the previous Licensing Portal, there was an option to select the Code as an added license.

Now, ¿how can we do to select a license code as added?
That is, if I already have licenses, how do I create a code to add it and that does not replace the current ones?

Hi, where can I find the codes for older SPSS versions than 19.0 in new license key center? Did the disappear?
