API Connect licenses

When you install a new version of API Connect on VMware, you must accept a new license.

Setting the License ID on VMware

Each license has a unique identifier called a License ID. Use apicup to accept the license. License acceptance is stored in apiconnect-up-v10.yml. Each accepted License ID is passed into subsystem CRs.

apicup licenses accept <License_ID>

For example:

apicup licenses accept L-EMZJ-MQ4M24
  • Use apicup licenses list displays licenses available for current version. Also shows all accepted licenses, including prior versions. apicup licenses list has a -o yaml|json flag to make script based usage easier.
  • If an invalid value is passed to apicup licenses accept, an error is displayed showing the valid values:
    Error: Must run `apicup licenses accept ID` with one of [L-GVEN-GFUPVE, L-BYRR-EEASJ3, .....]
  • If you run other apicup commands, such as apicup subsys get <subsystem_name> from within a project directory, without first accepting a license, those commands will fail. Once you accept the license, the commands will succeed.

You accept the license during First steps for deploying in a VMware environment.
