Set License Dialog Box

Use the Set License dialog box to add or modify licenses. To log in to a vault from an Enterprise PDM client, a license that matches the currently installed license type and version must be available.

Double-click Licenses to open the dialog box.

Vaults list The vaults that are currently using the server.
License list The client types for which licenses are installed and the number of simultaneous users permitted.
License file The path to the license file. You can browse to the file location.
Request license file Click to connect to the SolidWorks customer portal and request a license.
Automatic Log Off Click to display the Automatic Log Off dialog box, where you can enable automatic log off when a client system does not manage any files in the vault for more than 30 minutes.

This setting applies to all vault databases.

A user is only logged off after 30 minutes of inactivity if the license is requested by another user. If the license is not requested, the user is not logged off.
