Managing GXquery licensesOfficial Content

The first time the GXquery web interface is opened, if the authorization key to use the product hasn’t been entered, the following screen is displayed.

GXquery4 - License Manager first time

In the License Type combo box, select the type of licenses that you want to request. The options available are shown below:

By number of concurrent users This means that licenses will be purchased for concurrent users; for example, if you purchase 5 concurrent user licenses, only 5 users will be able to connect to and work on GXquery at the same time on any of the interfaces available. These interfaces may be the web interface, those of Smart Device applications, Excel or through the GXquery API. This is the GXquery 4.0 product.
Unlimited users This license doesn’t set a maximum number of users. This is the GXquery 4.0 Corporate product.

 

After selecting the license type, click on “Request license key”; this option will open a new window and redirect you to the following page:

When you receive an email with the requested key for the number of users that you will add, copy the key again in the License Key field and click on Authorize. This will add the additional users that you requested to the number of users that you previously had.

Note: For unlimited users licenses, only one license can be installed. As indicated by its name, an unlimited number of users can be connected and it's not necessary to install more than one.

Uninstalling licenses

This will enable you to request this license(s) again at another time to install it on the same server or another one.
