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>"
To verify the record use:
- Unix environment:
dig _jetbrains-license-server.<domain_name> TXT
- Windows environment:
nslookup -type=TXT _jetbrains-license-server.<domain_name>
For the most recent versions of IntelliJ Platform based products you can set an environment variable
'JETBRAINS_LICENSE_SERVER'. The variable should be set on an end-user machine and is equal to the license server's URL with protocol prefix, the same way as it's available in the browser.
