License Compatibility

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.52, last modified on April 18, 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.

In ReadyAPI 1.5, license files have a different format. As a result, there are some compatibility issues.

Using licenses activated in ReadyAPI 1.5 or later

Licenses activated in ReadyAPI 1.5 or later are not compatible with ReadyAPI 1.4 or earlier and SoapUI Pro. To run tests in earlier versions of ReadyAPI:

  • Deactivate the license in the installed version. If you perform offline deactivation, make sure to send the deactivation email and receive a verification.

  • Activate the license in the version you are going to use.

The new license type is forward-compatible, so you do not need to deactivate it to run later versions of ReadyAPI.

Using licenses activated in ReadyAPI 1.4 or earlier

Licenses activated in ReadyAPI 1.4 and earlier are compatible with all ReadyAPI versions and with SoapUI Pro.
