Deploy licenses offline

Updated: May 29, 2023

If you need to deploy or allocate licenses to many users or administrators, you can use the Export feature to specify the deployments offline, in an easy-to-use spreadsheet. You can then use the Import feature to apply all of the deployments at once, with just a few mouse clicks. The deployments take effect only when you import them.

To deploy or allocate licenses offline:

  1. Click the Export button, then click Excel. The myQNX License Manager will create a Microsoft Excel file that contains several columns (Serial Number, Users, Managers, etc.) for every product.
  2. To deploy or allocate a license, find its serial number, then enter the email address in the corresponding Users or Managers column.

    If you need to enter multiple addresses in a cell, separate them with commas.

  3. Save the file when you're done.

Note that the Excel file contains a record for every product that matches the current contents of the license manager's Search field. If you want the file to include all of the products you manage, make sure the field is blank before you click Export.

Don't change the column structure of the Excel file. Otherwise, importing the file will fail.
The exported file doesn’t contain product collection information, so we recommend that you avoid using it to deploy or allocate products that belong to product collections. If you do wish to use the Export feature for product collections, make sure that your assignments follow the product-collection rules described in Access multiple versions of a product.”

To import and apply the deployments or allocations you specified in the Excel file:

  1. Click Import.
  2. Click Choose File, select the Excel file, then click Next. You’ll see a Confirm Data window.
  3. Review your deployments, then click Next.
  4. Click Import to apply your changes. You’ll see a summary of your changes, along with any error messages.
  5. Click the X in the upper-right corner of the Import window to return to the myQNX License Manager.

The Import feature enforces all the rules that apply to license deployments and allocations. For instance, it:

If a deployment breaks any of these rules, the Import feature ignores it and displays a corresponding error message.

Note: Currently, you can’t use the Export and Import features to revoke licenses or deallocate administrators.
