Applying a license to your application

When you create an application, you can make your application licensable. Setting the application as licensable, protects your IP so that only licensed users can use the application. After an application is deployed, it is available to all the users. When the application requires a license, only those users with an appropriate license can see and use the application. 


After you license your application, you cannot revoke the license for that application. 

Setting a BMC or partner application for unlimited users

When licensing an application, you can set the -DenforceEndUserLicenses parameter in the Maven command to one of the following values:

  • True—Individual end user licenses is enforced.
  • False—Individual end user licenses is not enforced
    You can assign the application license to unlimited users.

The default value of the -DenforceEndUserLicenses parameter is True.

Before you begin

Ensure that you have created and customized the application. For more information, see Setting up the environment to develop a code-based application.

To license an application

  1. Navigate to the <artifactId> directory that is the parent folder. 
  2. Run the following command:

    mvn com.bmc.arsys:rx-sdk-maven-plugin:license -N -DappAuthorType=Number -DenforceEndUserLicenses=true/false

    and specify either of the following values for application AuthorType (-DappAuthorType) and End user Licenses (-DenforceEndUserLicenses) parameters: 

    Application typeValue for -DappAuthorTypeValue for -DenforceEndUserLicenses
    BMC application1
    • True—If you want the administrator to assign individual licenses to the users. This setting means that end-user licenses are enforced for the application.
    • False—If you do not want the administrator to assign individual licenses to the users. This setting means that end-user licenses are not enforced for the application.
    Partner application2
    Custom application3Not applicable. The combination of the -DappAuthorType 3 and -DenforceEndUserLicenses false is invalid for custom applications.
