Introduction on renewals concepts:
For products using date based licensing version, you will see both the original license order plus any renewal order for that product. The License Key Center will list the Renewal Order as a separate line in your account. To apply this to your license key, select the Renewal Order and it will give you the licenses associated to choose from. You may then add the quantity of the renewal per product and regenerate the key. Note, only registered licenses show up in the list of licenses available for upgrades using the renewal order. Important! The Original License Order and the Associated Renewal Order have to be registered on the same IBM Site ID. To be able to apply the renewal order and upgrade the license keys the orders need to reside on the same License Key Center account ID which is the same as your IBM Site ID
The license key can be used with any software version released before the end date of the in built license version (S&S end date). To be able to use any new release, the license key needs to be updated with new S&S orders for each period of renewal.
Click on "Get Keys" in the left navigation bar as shown below:
Select the Product for which maintenance or S&S renewal needs to be applied, lets say DOORS, then select the product and follow the instructions ahead.
In the "Required Information" screen, ensure you check for the correct Hostname and Host ID:
In the Version column, drop the box and select the latest version of the product and check the Original Maintenance End Date to be the current one. Please see below, Taking an example of Doors, we can choose the latest version while applying the maintenance to the license file:
In the Usage Quantity, key in the number of the licenses that needs to be upgraded to the latest maintenance.
Click on "Generate" and then download the latest license file by clicking the button "Download License Keys".
