The Licensing and Activation Community has merged with the Cloud and Web Services Community. Read more here.
The Transmit Usage Logs page on the SELECTserver administration site provides a link in Step 3 to a website for manually posting usage logs.
After selecting usage logs and clicking the Submit button, it fails with the following message:An Error Has Occured
The link provided by the SELECTserver administration site uses the HTTP protocol and includes the serial number and activation key like the example below:http://ssla.bentley.com/Logposting/ManualLogPosting.aspx?Control=ManualLogPosting&sn=12345679&akey=XXXXXXXXXX
The SSLA website has since switched to the HTTPS protocol for security reasons. When given an HTTP URL like the one above, it automatically redirects to an HTTPS URL instead, but in so doing, it duplicates the serial number and activation key as highlighted in the Serial Number and Activation Key fields below.
Copy the URL provided by the SELECTserver administration site, and change its extension so that it looks like the following:https://ssla.bentley.com/Logposting/ManualLogPosting.aspx?Control=ManualLogPosting&sn=12345679&akey=XXXXXXXXXX
Bookmark this URL for future reference and use it instead of the link on the SELECTserver administration site. When following the link above, it correctly populates the Serial Number and Activation Key fields with one value each.
Eliminate the extra serial number and activation keys from the fields before clicking the Submit button. Multiple entries are separated by commas.
The URL is normally updated automatically by the Data Update Service that runs daily, but a SELECTserver that manually transmits usage often cannot communicate with Bentley on its own. The following batch file updates the URL in the registry.
