Floating License Server Help

Managing licenses

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

When you add a license in your JetBrains Account to FLS, 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 FLS, and use an invitation link or email. For more information about managing individual licenses, see these video tutorials.

FLS 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 FLS web page. Use the Force Now link to initiate a connection immediately and synchronize license information.
