The license defines what features you are authorized to use, and how many printers you can use them on. When you install the Web Admin on a Server for the very first time, you receive a trail. The trial license provides the features of Celiveo Business for 10 printers for a period of 30 days. You can upgrade your trail license to a full license by uploading a license file, which your Celiveo representative will provide.

If you upgrade your license to have more features or to support more printers, you will be provided with another license file. You upload the license file on top of your existing license and your license upgrades.

What if I purchase a Connector License later?

What information must I provide Celiveo to generate a license file for me?

Your Celiveo representative may ask for details pertaining to your account. Additionally, you must provide the host name of the server that Web Admin runs on.

Automatic License Update

    If the license type is RENTAL, the number of days cannot be changed.
  2. Enter the administrator’s email address.
  3. (Optional) Customize the text that will be sent to administrator. Please do not change the variables.

Manual Update
