License SolarWinds Platform products in the SolarWinds Platform Web Console
This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products.
SolarWinds Platform products use the web-based License Manager to license products, Additional Polling Engines (APE), Additional Web Servers (AWS), and High Availability (HA) pools.
Your main SolarWinds Platform server acts as a licensing server. It cannot be down for more that 14 days or your licenses may be invalidated.
Click Settings > All Settings, scroll down, and click License Manager in the Details grouping to view and manage your licenses.
The web-based License Manager replaces the stand-alone License Manager in SolarWinds Platform products. If you have upgraded from a previous version of your product, you can still use the stand-alone Windows version for Orion Platform 2016.2 and earlier. New installs use the web-based License Manager only. If you have upgraded to the new web-based License Manager, SolarWinds recommends that you uninstall the standalone version.
