The following procedure assumes that your Oxygen XML Editor HTTP license server contains a previously activated license key and provides instructions for replacing it with another one or removing it completely.

This is useful if, for instance, you want to upgrade your existing license to the latest version or if you receive a new license key that accommodates a different number of users.

Replacing a License Key

To replace a license key that is activated on your HTTP license server with a new one, follow these steps:
  1. Access the license server by following the link provided by the Tomcat Web Application Manager page using your admin credentials.
  2. Click the Replace/Remove license key link. This will open a page that contains details about the license currently in use.
  3. Click the Replace button to begin the replacement procedure.
  4. Paste the new license key in the displayed form, then click Register/Activate. The browser used in the process needs to have Internet access.
    You will be redirected to an online form hosted on the Oxygen XML Editor website. This form is pre-filled with an activation code that uniquely identifies your license server deployment and your license key.
    Note: If you cannot access the online activation form, you can manually activate the license key.
  5. Press Register/Activate.

    If the activation process is completed successfully, your license server is now running using the new license key. You can click View license key to inspect the key currently used by the license server.

Removing a License Key

To remove a license key that is activated on your HTTP license server, follow these steps:
  1. Access the license server by following the link provided by the Tomcat Web Application Manager page using your admin credentials.
  2. Click the Replace/Remove license key link. This will open a page that contains details about the license currently in use.
  3. Click the Remove button to begin the license deletion procedure.
  4. Click the Remove button in the confirmation page.
    Important: The removal process is irreversible. Once the process is complete, you cannot restore the license key.
