Viewing the BMC Helix Innovation Suite licensing information

Use the Licenses tab to display information about the type and number of  AR System licenses on a server. You can also set the Submitter Mode in this tab.

Best practice

We recommend that you use the AR System Management Console to manage the licenses. For more information, see Setting global-level and local-level configurations for a server group.
To display server license information and set the submitter mode


This form shows the local level value of the configuration. If a local value does not exist, the form displays the global level configuration. If you modify the value on this form, the local level configuration value is modified.

For example, if a configuration shows global level value and you modify the value by using this form, the local level value gets created for the configuration.

  1. In a browser, open the BMC Remedy AR System Administration Console, and select System > General > Server Information.
    The AR System Administration: Server Information form appears.
  2. Click the Licenses tab.

    Submitter Mode 

    Defines the conditions under which submitters can modify the requests they initially submit (that is, where their names are in the Submitter field). Select one of the following options:

    • Locked—(Default) Users can modify requests they submit without a write license. This does not apply to users with a Restricted Read license who cannot modify requests under any circumstances. In the locked submitter mode, after the entry is submitted, the value in the Submitter field cannot be changed.
    • Changeable—Users must have a write license to modify requests.

    Changes to the Submitter Mode settings do not take effect until the server is stopped and restarted.

  4. Click Apply.
