5.3 Adding a License Key

On the Configuration > Licenses page, the System Administrator can add the full license key or evaluation license key and view license status for current blocks of licenses for this PTM Server. The Licenses Blocks list shows each block with its purchase date, start date, expiration date, count for total licenses in the block, and count for remaining unused licenses. The list displays only license blocks with active fulfillment periods and unused licenses available. It does not include historical information about license blocks after the fulfillment period has expired or when the number of remaining unused licenses is zero (0).
