|Important Notice for ReadyAPI Customers
ReadyAPI has moved to SmartBear License Management and from October 2023, file-based licensing will be retired. As of September 2023, all licenses issued for your subscription term will be ID-based licenses by default. If you are not currently on ID-based licensing, it's time to migrate immediately. File-based licensing will no longer be supported as of October 2023. This means that technical support requests related to file-based licensing will not be accommodated. If you encounter technical issues that you're unable to resolve, it could lead to service interruption. For customers still in the process of migration, we recommend reaching out to your Account Manager to discuss your migration plan. Alternatively, you can log a support request with our Customer Care Team for assistance.

To control floating licenses, ReadyAPI uses Protection! Licensing Server. Topics of this section describe how to install and configure it.
Starting from version 3.3.1, ReadyAPI uses Protection! Licensing Server version 5. Earlier ReadyAPI versions use Protection! Licensing Server version 4. To learn how to update your License server, see Upgrade License Server to 5.x.
