Online PCS/Prolaborate activation request
« on: January 07, 2020, 11:24:07 pm »
Based on a Client request:

The process to activate the Pro Cloud Server and Prolaborate on a client's server requires to generate a request file with the keys (e.g. installation ID) to submit via email, pending a reply with the appropriate license file.
Could there be a secure way to process this online by querying SparxSystems server and request the client to provide a password ?

From Prolaborate's point of view, this has been on our mind from the day we developed the licensing mechanism but there is no demand for it to date.

This is because
1. Most of the deployments are on the premises of the customer and so, online activation from the license page is not possible
2. It's still a hassle if a user has to get access to application servers, move the verification file generated from Prolaborate between servers, upload to a licensing system of Prolaborate and get back the activation key.

On top of these points, it's just a one-time activity for a year or till the duration of the license.
