IBM Rational Jazz token license configuration on Jazz team server
Token based licensing is an option, along with floating and authorized user licensing, within the Rational portfolio. Technically, the basis of token licensing is on the traditional floating license mechanism and process. However, when it comes to how the license check out (consumption) works, it has a different behavior.
In a token environment, each product consumes a predefined token value, not a predefined quantity as it does in a traditional floating licensing environment. The license key has a pool of tokens from which the license server automatically calculates the tokens being checked in and out across users and products.
Lets discuss how a token based licensing model can be implemented for Jazz-based products.
Jazz-based products use IBM Rational Common Licensing (RCL) token service provider, which is an extension of the Jazz Team Server (JTS) that forwards token requests to an IBM Rational License Key Server (RLKS). Jazz-based products and non Jazz-based products can share tokens from same pool of tokens.
How to generate Jazz tokens?
Log into the Rational license key center and follow the below steps to get the required Jazz tokens
You can also refer to the technote links below which will guide you in accomplishing this task:
To configure these Jazz based licenses, from a licensing perspective pre-requisites are:
The following picture shows a high level single server topology deployment of RTC using token licensing.
Once you have successfully configured your flexlm license server with token file, you downloaded from IBM Rational license key center (license.dat), Import the Jazz Keys (Jazz.Token.zip file) on the Jazz team server.
Post successful import of Jazz keys on the Jazz team server you will find an entry very similar to the below diagram
The above screen confirms that the Jazz tokens are successfully imported on the Jazz team server and we can now proceed to configure this Jazz Team Server to communicate with the Rational License Key Server that you installed and configured earlier.
In the Floating License Server section of the License Key Management page of your Jazz team server click the radio button next to IBM Rational Common Licensing Token Service to enable the service.
Hover over the icon in the Actions column until you see the edit hover. Click the icon to view the Server Configuration dialogs shown in following picture.
Configure the following two properties in the above dialog:
If the Jazz Team Server is able to connect to the Rational License Key Server, you'll see a green checkmark on the IBM Rational Common Licensing Token Service line as shown in following picture.
