Altova RaptorXML Server 2024

Syntax and description

The assignlicense command uploads a license file to the Altova LicenseServer with which RaptorXML Server is registered (see the licenseserver command), and assigns the license to RaptorXML Server. It takes the path of a license file as its argument. The command also allows you to test the validity of a license.


raptorxml assignlicense [options] FILE

raptorxmlserver assignlicense [options] FILE


The FILE argument takes the path of the license file.

The --test-only option uploads the license file to LicenseServer and validates the license, but does not assign the license to RaptorXML Server.

The assignlicense command can be called from either executable: raptorxml or raptorxmlserver.


For details about licensing, see the LicenseServer documentation (




Examples of the assignlicense command:


raptorxml assignlicense C:\licensepool\mylicensekey.altova_licenses

raptorxmlserver assignlicense C:\licensepool\mylicensekey.altova_licenses

raptorxml assignlicense --test-only=true C:\licensepool\mylicensekey.altova_licenses


The first command above uploads the specified license to LicenseServer and assigns it to RaptorXML Server.

The second command calls the server-executable to do the same thing as the first command.

The last command uploads the specified license to LicenseServer and validates it, without assigning it to RaptorXML Server.



Options are listed in short form (if available) and long form. You can use one or two dashes for both short and long forms. An option may or may not take a value. If it takes a value, it is written like this: --option=value. Values can be specified without quotes except in two cases: (i) when the value string contains spaces, or (ii) when explicitly stated in the description of the option that quotes are required. If an option takes a Boolean value and no value is specified, then the option's default value is TRUE. Use the --h, --help option to display information about the command.
