Configure the Genero product license controller

To configure the license controller, edit the license controller configuration file.

Before the Four Js License Manager (FLM) can manage a Genero product license, you must configure the product's license controller configuration file locally with FLM server details and the product's license number. License controller configuration files are in the product's etc installation directory.

Genero Enterprise and Genero Mobile products are configured by setting values in the fgllicense file. Genero Report Engine (GRE) is configured by setting values in the grelicense file.

  1. To set the value for the FLM server, add the line in the following format with the name of server:
    For example:
    [server]
    host=hostname 
    port=port     # Default is 6800
  2. To set the value for the license number, add the line in the following format:
    [license]
    # License to use with FLM service
    number=license_number
  3. Add or update values for the resources shown in Table 1 as required:
