Licensing process, step by step

The following steps are involved in standard licensing process:

Client -> Orders -> Licenses

STEP 1: Program is added to database (this is done only once)

STEP 2: Client is added to database (each new client requires new account in database)

STEP 3: Order for appropriate program is added to client's account.

STEP 4: Licenses can now be added to Order.

Handling of standard licenses

Standard licenses can be handled in three different ways:

1. From ACEN administrators interface.

Administrator users can add, update or extend licenses for any order.

2. From ACEN clients interface

End users (clients) can manage only licenses tied to their orders.

3. By using ACEN web service interface

Both end users and administrators can access ACEN web service. Administrator users can manage all licenses where end users can manage only licenses from their account.
