Altova LicenseServer

Altova LicenseServer (hereafter also called LicenseServer for short) provides a central location for the management of licenses for Altova products. Altova applications running in a network can have licenses assigned to them from the LicenseServer, thus giving administrators the flexibility to centrally manage and monitor licenses.


Current version: 3.1 * 


* LicenseServer 3.1 can be used to license Altova MobileTogether Server version 5.2 or older. It cannot be used to license a version that is newer than 5.2. For more information about compatibility, see Updating LicenseServer.


Licensing procedure

LicenseServer can be downloaded free of cost from the Altova website. After you have correctly installed LicenseServer and started it as a service, the procedure for assigning licenses to an Altova product is as follows:


1.Register your Altova products with LicenseServer. The registration is carried out from the Altova product.
2.Upload your Altova product licenses to the license pool of LicenseServer.
3.Assign the uploaded product licenses to your registered products.


See the General Information section and Configuration Page Reference for available functionality.


Note:The LicenseServer Configuration page does not support SSL.

Click to expand/CollapseGoogle Chrome's Same-Origin Policy (SOP)

When viewing the Help that is delivered with your Altova product in Google's Chrome browser, you might find (i) that you cannot collapse the expanded TOC in the left-hand frame, and (ii) that image miniatures cannot be expanded to full-size images by clicking on the miniature. These limitations occur because of the Same-Origin Policy (SOP) restrictions that Chrome applies. If you face these restrictions, you have the following options:


Disable Chrome's SOP. You can do this by opening Chrome from the command line with the argument --disable-web-security. (If, after starting Chrome with web security disabled, you close the browser and restart it normally (that is, without the argument), then it will restart with web security enabled.) Note, however, that using this argument will disable the browser's web security and thereby compromise your organization's security. So this is a risky workaround, and we do not recommend it. It is better to go with one of the next two options.
Use a browser with a SOP that allows (i) the collapsing and expanding of TOC items, and (ii) the expanding of image miniatures. For example, Firefox.
Use Chrome with these SOP restriction. The Help's functionality is not affected in any other way besides the restrictions mentioned above.
