Oxygen license server details!

Post by mu258770 » Thu Jun 18, 2020 12:48 pm

Hi team,

We are using Oxygen Author 20.1 Eclipse and we are using Standalone license server connection for the Oxygen license. To use Oxygen, we give the standalone license server host and port number.

We would like to know when we open Eclipse Oxygen and provide the license details, where the license details are stored for the user? Is it in users eclipse workspace? Environment variables ? Or/and somewhere else?

We see sometimes the license details are not stored for some users even though the details are provided it in earlier session of eclipse oxygen. Your answers would help investigating the issue.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Shabeer

Hello,

The license details are stored in a file named license.xml in the Oxygen preferences folder which is located in the user profile folder.
To clarify, depending on the platform the Oxygen XML Author preferences folder is:
  • Windows - <user-home-folder>\AppData\Roaming\com.oxygenxml.author
  • Mac OS X - <user-home-folder>/Library/Preferences/com.oxygenxml.author
  • Linux - <user-home-folder>/.com.oxygenxml.author
This means the user profile folder needs to be persistent between sessions.
An alternative to this is to copy the license.xml file from the Oxygen preferences folder to the Eclipse installation in the lib sub-folder of the Oxygen Eclipse plugin (plugins/com.oxygenxml.author_20.1.0.v*/lib).

Adrian

Hi Adrian,

Thanks a lot for your response.

We see that the AppData is not retained in different sessions in our setup.

We would like to know what else is stored in users home directory when users access oxygen Author in Eclipse. If users do any preferences changes like tag modes, will it be stored in the users home directory or will it be in Eclipse workspace?

Hi,

For the Eclipse plugin only the license details are kept in the preferences folder. Some temporary files might also be created there during runtime, but these are not persistent between sessions.
For the Eclipse plugin all the user preferences are stored in the Eclipse workspace.

Most of what is stored in the Oxygen preferences folder is for the standalone edition of Oxygen, the Eclipse plugin only has in common with that the license details information (license.xml file).
