License controller configuration

Configuring a license controller is no longer handled in the FGLPROFILE file. Each license controller now has its own dedicated configuration file.

Locate your product's license controller configuration file.
Table 1. Genero products and license configuration files
Genero product Default license controller configuration file
Genero Enterprise $FGLDIR/etc/fgllicense
Genero Report Engine $GREDIR/etc/grelicense
Tip: Default locations of the license controller configuration files are shown. You can set the location of these files by using the FGLLICENSE or GRELICENSE environment variables. See Specify the licensing configuration file.

For more information, see Configure the Genero product license controller.

Licensing Genero in a Docker container requires the FLM

Genero 4.00 requires the use of the Four Js License Manager 6.00.

It is no longer possible to license using the local license controllers (fglWrt or greWrt) to assign the license installed on the host machine to that running in a Docker container. The license controller options of docker-assign and docker-release are no longer present.

For instructions on licensing your docker container, see the Four Js License Manager User Guide.
