Managing Licenses

After you register the License Server with your JetBrains Account, you can manage the pool of licenses available to the License Server. A separate team is created in your organization's JetBrains Account for managing licenses available to the License Server.

When you add a license in your JetBrains Account to the License Server, it is converted to a floating license, which means that it can be used by multiple users instead of being assigned to one particular user. If you want to assign an individual license, remove it from the License Server, and use an invitation link or email. For more information about managing individual licenses, see these video tutorials.

The License Server connects to the JetBrains Account every hour to obtain license information. The date and time of the latest connection is displayed at the bottom of the License Server web page. Use the Force Now link to initiate a connection immediately and synchronize license information.
