Activation Key Mappings allows you to map your Activation Keys to an Entitlement Group. With this mapping, the requests for activations for the Activation key will respect the list of Allowed Applications that are configured for the Entitlement group in Entitlement Management.
Existing site activation keys, including custom activation groups and temporary keys, will automatically be migrated to SES and mapped to their corresponding entitlement country. However, Bentley cannot generate entitlement groups and the product restrictions to reflect existing custom activation groups and temporary keys.
Because these restrictions cannot be migrated over from SELECTserver automatically, administrators will need to create entitlement groups and configure the product restriction lists if they want to match the restrictions that were configured for the activation keys in SELECTserver. The Configure Activation Key Restrictions tool is available to facilitate this process. This tool will create a new Entitlement group with the same name as the Key Name, map the key to that new group and, import product restrictions from SELECTserver, if any exist.
To learn more about what mapping an Activation Key to an Entitlement Group does, please reference the SELECTserver to SES Migration Guide.
The Configure Activation Key Restrictions tool will do the following:
To use the Configure Activation Key Restrictions tool:
It is recommended to check the summary of changes to ensure they should still apply to your current needs. Any changes to the list of Allowed Applications can be handled by clicking on the Entitlement group button () to the right of the mapping and editing the Allowed Application list within Entitlement Management.Other Language Sources
