PyCharm 2019.3 Help

Register PyCharm

You can evaluate PyCharm for up to 30 days. After that, you need to buy and register a license.

  1. Do one of the following to open the Licenses dialog:

    • On the Welcome screen, click Configure | Manage License

    • From the main menu, select Help | Register

    The License Activation dialog
  2. Select how you want to register PyCharm or a plugin that requires a license:

    Option

    Description

    JB Account

    Register using the JetBrains Account.

    For more information, see What is JetBrains Account?

    Activation code

    Register using an activation code.

    You are given an activation code, when you purchase a license for the corresponding product.

    License server

    Register using the Floating License Server.

    When performing silent install or managing PyCharm installations on multiple machines, you can set the JETBRAINS_LICENSE_SERVER environment variable to point the installation to the Floating License Server URL.

    PyCharm detects the system proxy URL during initial startup and uses it for connecting to the JetBrains Account and Floating License Server. To override the URL of the system proxy, use the -Djba.http.proxy property, which can be added as a JVM option.

    Specify the proxy URL as the host address and optional port number: proxy-host[:proxy-port]. For example: -Djba.http.proxy=http://my-proxy.com:4321.

    If you want to disable proxy detection entirely and always connect directly, set the property to -Djba.http.proxy=direct.
