Licensing your SEM deployment

On the Settings page, you can view, upgrade, activate, and deactivate your SEM license.

Only administrators can upgrade, activate, and deactivate a license.

To display license information, click the Settings icon, and click Manage License.

The link on the upper right will depend upon whether the license is active or inactive.

If you do not have a license or it is inactive, Activate license will be displayed.

  • For online activation: click Activate license, enter your license key, name, email, and phone number, and then click Activate.
  • For offline activation: click Activate license, use your unique ID to generate the license file, or click Browse to select your license file, and then click Activate.

    If you do not have a license key, click Purchase license key. This directs you to the current licensing options available for SEM on the SolarWinds website.

If SEM is already licensed and activated, license information will be displayed and the options will be to Upgrade or Deactivate.
