Configuring Automatic Server Discovery
To configure automatic License Server discovery you need to add DNS TXT record
url=<server_url> for the following name:
A valid response should look exactly like this:
_jetbrains-license-server.<domain_name>. 3600 IN TXT "url=http://<license-server-host>:<license-server-port>"
For record verification use:
dig _jetbrains-license-server.<domain_name> TXT
nslookup -type=TXT _jetbrains-license-server.<domain_name>
Since July 2017 IntelliJ platform based products support an environment variable
'JETBRAINS_LICENSE_SERVER'. The variable should be set on an end-user local profile and is equal to the license server's URL with protocol prefix, exactly as it's available in the browser.
