Intended audience

  • block a user, or

Which users have an FS Pro 2020 license?

In the administrator interface, the "Licensed Users" page shows which users have requested and been successfully granted an FS Pro 2020 license. For each user the following information is listed:

  • Domain/User ID
  • System information
  • Last license request
  • Offline

You can sort the information in each column by clicking the arrows in the table header.

Granting a license to a user

You can grant a license to a user before the user has actually connected to the License Manager. This way you can be sure a license is allocated to this user.

To grant a license to user, proceed as follows:

Step

Action

1

Go to the "Licensed Users" page.

2

Enter the Domain\UserID in the field under Grant License and click the Grant License button.

Result: The user is added the Licensed Users list. The system information still displays "None" and the "Last License Request" displays "Never". When the user will connect to the server for the first time, this information will be updated automatically.

Blocking a user

You can block a user from using FS Pro 2020 in 2 ways: on the "Licensed Users" page

  • Enter the Domain\UserID in the field under Block User and click the Block User button, or
  • Select the user in the Licensed Users list and click the button Block User on top of the table.

Result: The user is added to the list of Blocked Users and will not be able to use FS Pro 2020 anymore.

Unblocking a user

You can unblock a user, or remove him from the list of Blocked Users. Then he will be able to use FS Pro 2020 again in case licenses are still available.

To unblock a user, proceed as follows:

Step

Action

1

Go to the "Blocked Users" page. 

2

Select the user in the Blocked Users list and click the button Unblock User on top of the table.

Result: The user is removed from the Blocked Users list. The next time he starts FS Pro 2020 and is successfully granted a license, he will appear in the Licensed Users list again.
