Additional Licenses

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.53, last modified on May 15, 2024
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.

For more details regarding licensing support, please refer to this link.

A Pro license for one of ReadyAPI tools lets you use all the features of this tool (including the Pro features), as well as the basic features of the other tools.

If you need the Pro features of the other tools, you need to purchase a Pro license for these tools. In this case, you will append "new" licenses to an "existing" license.

This topic explains how to activate "additional" commercial licenses. For information on activating additional trial licenses, see Trial License Activation.

License compatibility

Since ReadyAPI 1.4, you can combine fixed and floating licenses on one computer. For example, you can use a floating license for ReadyAPI Test, but have a fixed ReadyAPI Virtualization license.

Activation procedure

Activation of an additional license does not differ from activation of new licenses.
