ReadyAPI Licensing

Important Notice for ReadyAPI Customers

ReadyAPI has moved to SmartBear License Management. From 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 use ReadyAPI, you need a trial or commercial license for one or more of ReadyAPI tools: Test, Performance, or Virtualization.

ReadyAPI 3.53 uses licenses of two types:

  • SmartBear ID-based— These licenses don’t require license keys or files. To run the product, a user needs to specify their SmartBear account.

  • File-based— These licenses involve using a license file from SmartBear. You apply that file on your computer to activate the license, or you consume the license from the license server that is running in your network and that is licensed with this file.
