Jotform Integration


Through QLM's JotForm integration, you can build a user registration form in JotForm and connect the form to QLM such that whenever a user registers, a trial license is automatically created and sent to the customer by email.

Create and configure JotForm form

In JotForm, create a form with the following elements:

  • First Name (optional)

  • Last Name (optional)

  • Email (required)

  • Company (optional)

  • Phone (optional)

  • Country (optional)

Go to the Settings of the form above and select Integrations:

QLM Configuration

Field mappings

To map the JotForm fields to QLM:

  • In JotForm, edit your form and click the BUILD tab

  • Select the first field in your form

  • In the properties panel, click the Advanced tab and expand Field Details

  • Note the Unique Name value of this field and record it to be used later in the process

  • Repeat the steps above for all the fields on the form

  • Note that if a field is a combination of 2 values such as First Name and Last Name, the Unique Name value should be suffixed with []. Example: fullName[]

To map the JotForm fields to QLM fields:

  • On your License Server, locate the QlmCustomerSite folder

  • Open the web.config file with any text editor

  • Set the useThirdPartyRegistrationFields property to True

  • In the thirdPartyRegistrationFields section, set the field names captured in the previous section to the JotForm names in exactly the following order: Email, FirstName, LastName, Phone, Company

Arguments Definition

In the QLM Management Console:

  • Go to the Manage Keys tab and click Sites

  • Go to the Server Properties tab

  • Create a new custom server property by clicking the + sign in the right hand panel

  • Set the name of the new property to: jotform_args

  • Set the value of the new property to (update the values as needed): &is_productid=1&is_majorversion=1&is_minorversion=0&is_licensemodel=trial&is_emailtemplate=Customer.TrialRequest

  • Click Ok

Back to Jotform, open your form in a browser and register a user. Once registration is completed, a new license key will be created and emailed to the customer.

Customize the Response

To customize the response printed in the browser, you must:

  • Create an HTML fragment with the content that you wish to display. The HTML content can include a variable called %QlmResponse% which will be replaced by the QLM result of the trial request.

  • Encode your HTML fragment

    • To encode your html in the web.config file, use an online encoder such as

    • Place your HTML content on a single line

    • Use FreeFormatter to escape your HTML content so that it can be placed in the web.config

  • Update the QlmCustomerSite.Properties.Settings section in the QlmCustomerSite web.config file by adding a new setting called "registrationCustomResponse" as shown below:

<setting name="registrationCustomResponse" serializeAs="String">
<value>&lt;html&gt;&lt;head&gt;&lt;meta http-equiv=&quot;refresh&quot; content=&quot;2; URL=; /&gt;&lt;/head&gt;&lt;script&gt;&lt;!-- window.location = &quot;;; --&gt;&lt;/script&gt;&lt;body&gt;Thank you for registering. %QlmResponse%&lt;/body&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</value>
