To be able to work with LUCS Products you need to obtain a valid licence. There are two types of LUCS licenses:
- Full license (Allows running the LUCS product without time limit).
- Trial license (Allows running the LUCS product for a defined period).
More information about licence expiry is present in the 'License Expiration' chapter below.
Uploading a License
To upload the license, execute the following steps:
- Click the 'Upload License File' button;
→ A file dialogue opens to locate the new licence file.
- Optional: Remove the previous license, if it is present by clicking the 'Remove License' button. You may ignore this step, because the uploading of new license will overwrite the old one.
Select the new license file and click "Open"
→ After the upload process is finished, the 'License Information' is displayed on the page.Licence Details
Some infos on licences
- The license file should have the .lic file format. If the file format is incorrect, an 'Invalid License File Upload Attempt' error will appear.
- The license should match exactly to the correct Luware product (e.g., TM or PA product licenses cannot be used for LUCS product);
- The 'Valid Until' date is not checked before or during the upload process. If an expired trial license is uploaded, the application will behave as if the license is expired.

License Limitations / Warning Messages
The usage of the LUCS system outside of any contract or license is prohibited. If such usage is detected, the LUCS system informs you with a warning. This mechanism also includes recommendations to decrease the usage of the product if you have a licence that doesn't cover your current LUCS usage scenario.
An exceeded usage warning is always shown with a yellow signal color:

Trial License Expiration
Unlike passing the limitations of a valid licence, the expiry will be handled with a red signal color, as expiry has direct consequences to your daily operation.
When the expiry date is passed, the following things happen:
- ICH component stops
- AM component stops
- On the 'License' page the message is shown: 'YOUR LICENSE HAS EXPIRED AT: month\date\year. Your license has expired, Please contact our Sales team for a renewal of the License.
After expiry of an existing license and uploading of a new license file, the LUCS components AM and PS have to be manually restarted.
When your old license is still valid while you upload a new file, the transition will be "seamless" without interruption to your services.
