Copy Version and Edition from the Most Recent Application

FlexNet Manager Suite 2019 R1 (On-Premises Edition)

Set this check box if you want the Version and Edition fields of the license to reflect the Version and Edition of the latest and greatest application linked to the license (the one, for example, with the highest version number, which is not necessarily the one most recently linked).

On applications, the Version and Edition have an unambiguous purpose. On license records, there are three ways you can use these fields:
  • A few asset managers prefer to use these to differentiate revisions of the license itself. In this model, if you first purchased MyApp at version 9, then you could record version (or revision) 1 of your license to link to it. If you use this model, you must clear this check box.
  • Others may prefer to have the license perpetually record the original product version and edition to which the license was applied, even as the linked application is updated across multiple releases. In this model, the license would show the original version 9 even after MyApp had been updated through version 12. If you use this model, you must clear this check box.
  • It is more common to have the license properties reflect the properties of the linked application. In this model, MyApp version 9 is tracked in a matching license version 9; and as MyApp is automatically upgraded to version 10, you want the license to reflect that and display version 10. If you use this model, select the Copy Version and Edition values from the most recent application check box to synchronize the license Version and Edition displayed on the Identification tab with the values from the latest application. This is the default and generally recommended setting. As the application is updated to a new version, the Version (and Edition ) displayed in the license‚Äôs Identification tab are automatically updated to match.
