How to install a license on a deployment?

A valid license is required for the product to work. Installers may or may not provide licenses or licenses may become invalid. In such situations, you must install a new license. A licence is provided in a JAR file called licence bundle.


If you have a clustered deployment, follow the following procedure and install your license on each of the nodes in your deployment:

  1. If <install dir> is the directory where Axway Decision Insight is installed, then place license bundle in the <install dir>/lib/licences directory. To add or remove a license, simply add or remove the corresponding license bundle from this directory.
  2. Restart the node for the new license to be activated.

To know which license is currently activated on your node, execute the displayLicence command in the Gogo shell console:

g! displayLicence

Only one valid license at a time can be activated on a node (validity date, cluster ID, ...). If several valid licenses are found when the node starts, the node will not work and you will get an error message.
