Each Dashboard Server instance should have only oneDashboard Server licence key installed. This is usually either a trial licence, or - after purchasing Dashboard Server - the Primary or Secondary licence. You may have both a Primary and a trial licence installed, for example, if you are trialling new features while considering a licence upgrade.
To check which licence is being used by an instance of Dashboard Server, open Dashboard Server on a particular server by using the localhost address on the server itself or using the server name in the URL, for example
- In Dashboard Server click on the right-hand menu ☰ and then on system.
- Click on licensing .
Here you can remove a licence, but if you accidentally remove the active licence you may not be able to access Dashboard Server again without contacting SquaredUp Support.
Types of licences
|Trial licence||This licence allows for unlimited users and all features for a 30 day evaluation in your own environment and is available from here|
|Primary Production licence||This licence should be used if you only have one SquaredUp production server, or on your first SquaredUp production server if you are configuring a multi-server / high availability environment (see Enabling High Availability).|
This licence should only be used for any subsequent servers in a multi-server / high availability / load balanced environment (see Enabling High Availability).
|Test & Development licence|
This licence is for your test environment so that you can experiment with configuration changes and new versions without affecting production.
For more information see How to activate your licence.
