You can apply floating licenses on headless machines by using a command-line license manager.

  1. Download the License Manager packaged application from the SmartBear website.

    Note: The License Manager requires Java 12. You can use Java shipped with ReadyAPI or download the required version from
  2. Run the License Manager .bat (or .sh on Linux and macOS) file with the -s <serverIP>:<Port> option:

    • For example, if you use Java shipped with ReadyAPI, perform the following commands:

      cd <ReadyAPI directory>\jre\bin
      <path to license manager>\license-manager.bat -s
    • If you use Java 12 installed in your operating system, perform the following command:

      license-manager.bat -s
  3. The License Manager will ask you what license information (SoapUI, LoadUI, ServiceV, VirtServer or ReadyAPI TestEngine) you want to check out. Specify the license by entering the relevant number.

    How to automate

The License Manager will check out the license from the license server and apply it.
