About JetBrains License Server

JetBrains License Server is a web application that enables license administration across a single network.

License Server serves as a central point for distribution of licenses among multiple users and client machines in a network environment. It supports the following JetBrains products:

  • IntelliJ IDEA 7.0 or higher (only Commercial licenses). (A License Server-compatible build of IntelliJ IDEA 6.0 is available upon request.)
  • ReSharper 3.1 or higher (only Commercial licenses).
  • dotTrace 3.1 or higher (only Floating licenses).
  • RubyMine 1.0 or higher.

IntelliJ IDEA 7.0 or higher You can have earlier versions in your network, but you cannot manage them using License Server.

License Server issues and revokes license tickets to/from network clients based on properties of license keys that are provided by JetBrains after purchase. License Server supports two types of license keys:

Single-user license key that allows a customer to access a product by a specific number of concurrent users corresponding with the number of purchased license keys run by the License Server.

Multi-user license key that allows a customer to access a product by unlimited number of concurrent users pursuant to a separate license agreement with JetBrains. The agreement implies regular monitoring of the concurrent product usage and providing quarterly usage reports to JetBrains for the purpose of license "true-up".

If you have obtained a number of single-user license keys, you can download License Server and start using it right away, without requesting additional access permissions.

If you are interested in a multi-user license key, please contact sales for information on licensing terms.
