WebStorm 2021.2 Help

Register WebStorm

You can evaluate WebStorm for up to 30 days. After that, you have to buy a license to continue using WebStorm.

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

    • From the main menu, select Help | Register

    • On the Welcome screen, click Help | Manage License

    WebStorm: Licenses dialog
  2. Select how you want to register WebStorm or a plugin that requires a license:

    OptionDescription
    JB Account

    Register using the JetBrains Account.

    If you are using two-factor authentication for your JetBrains Account, specify the generated app password instead of the primary JetBrains Account password.

    JetBrains Account with 2-factor authentication
    Activation code

    Register using an activation code.

    You can get 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 WebStorm installations on multiple machines, you can set the JETBRAINS_LICENSE_SERVER environment variable to point the installation to the Floating License Server URL.

    Alternatively, you can set the Floating License Server URL by adding the -DJETBRAINS_LICENSE_SERVER JVM option.

    WebStorm 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, add the -Djba.http.proxy 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.

Log in with an authorization token

An authorization token is a way to log in to your JetBrains Account if your system doesn't allow for redirection from the IDE directly, for example, due to your company's security policy. WebStorm recognizes when redirection to the JetBrains Account website is impossible. It enables you to copy a link to generate an authorization token manually.

  1. Click Copy link and open the copied link in your browser.

  2. Log in to your JetBrains Account to generate an authorization token. After that, copy the token, paste it to the IDE authorization token field and click Check token.

  3. Once you've successfully logged in, you can start using WebStorm EAP by clicking Get Started.

    If you want to participate in EAP-related activities and provide your feedback, make sure to select the Send me EAP-related feedback requests and surveys option.
