After years of using a proprietary, dongle-based in-house solution, there was demand for a more professional solution at TraceTronic. The existing solution provided insufficient scalability because of an expanding customer base and an increasing license count. A reliable solution was needed to support floating license scenarios also.
After evaluating various software licensing products, TraceTronic opted for the Reprise License Manager (RLM), which satisfies these requirements and provides an extensive API. Now TraceTronic applications can be extended to support even complex license configurations while offering improved usage feedback and control for users.
TraceTronic connected RLM through Python using C and developed a graphical license management utility on top of it. With the utility, users can dynamically switch between roaming, floating and host-based license modes. Additionally, the utility can display details about license availability, expiry date and much more.
The integration worked seamlessly, especially the mapping from product options to customer-specific license options. The installation of the license server was achieved to our full satisfaction at our most demanding customer sites.
