Variable License Binding

In some scenarios, you may want to use a different license binding method per customer.

QLM Enterprise's Variable License Binding allows you to associate a binding method with a QLM feature.

Defining Product Features

The first step in configuring Variable License Binding is to define a new feature per license binding method. To do so:

  • Launch the QLM Management Console

  • Go to the Define Products tab

  • Select your product

  • For each license binding method that you'd like to support, add a corresponding feature

Defining the variable license binding

Next, you must associate a different license binding method with each feature.

  • Launch the QLM Management Console

  • Go to the Protect Your Application tab

  • Step to the "Customize Look & Feel / Behavior" page

  • Go to the License Properties section

  • Set the QlmLicenseBinding property to "PerFeature"

  • Click the dropdown box next to QlmLicenseBindingPerFeature and configure the mapping as required

  • Complete the wizard and generate the XML/Source code files.

  • Update your application to use the newly generated files

Creating an Activation Key

When creating an Activation Key for a customer, select the corresponding feature to enforce the required license binding.
