License management

IBM™ UrbanCode™ Deploy provides a 60-day license-free evaluation period. To use all product features after the evaluation period, you must have a license.

Unless you provide the location of a license server when you install IBM UrbanCode Deploy, a 60-day evaluation period begins when you install the product. During evaluation, you can use all product features. A message on the web-based UI displays the number of days that remain in the evaluation period.

After the evaluation period, you can access IBM UrbanCode Deploy to view and edit items but you cannot run deployments. You can apply a license at any time.

For more information about setting up a Rational® Common Licensing server and applying licenses, see the Rational Common Licensing help: Rational Common Licensing v8.1.4 - documentation

The Rational License Key Center is an online licensing tool. You can use this tool to generate or return your IBM Rational product license keys.

The IBM UrbanCode Deploy server is supported on z/Linux. While the licensing component is not supported on z/Linux, IBM UrbanCode Deploy tracks agent usage, called agent high-water marks. You can use these records to estimate license use on you z/Linux installation. See Tracking agent usage.
Note: To minimize interruptions in access to your license server, you can configure it for high availability. See High-availability options for Rational License Key Server.
Note: Starting with UrbanCode Deploy v7.0.5, container bits are now part of the Entitled Registry. For more information about accessing an Entitled Registry, see: Installing with the Cloud Pak for Applications command-line interface.
