Module Suite installation guide: Manually setting the activation key


This guide covers the software Activation phase that is part of the Module Suite installation guide.

  • Deployment
  • Installation
  • Activation
  • Configuration
  • Post-installation patching

This phase covers the activation of the modules previously deployed and installed on the system during the Deployment and Installation phases. The related operations will be performed using the Module Suite administration tools, as well as the Content Server standard administration tools.

Only perform after previous phases are complete

The guide assumes that the Module Deployment and Module Installation phases have already been completed on the target environment. If that is not the case, please go back to the Installation overview.

Licensing on a Clustered Environment

Since version 3.1.0, if the installation is performed on a multi-server architecture is no longer necessary to repeat the activation process on all the node of the cluster since the License Key information is stored in the Content Server's database.

Applying the License Key manually

  • As the system Admin user, open the Content Server Administration pages.

  • Locate the AnswerModules Administration section. Within this section, open the Base Configuration tool.

    Base Configuration

  • Within the Base Configuration page, locate the Module Suite - Activation Key entry (it can be found in the Core section).

    Module Suite - Activation License configuration field

  • Enter the activation key in the text area.

    Apply the license key

    License key format

    When copying the license key, make sure that no whitespaces or new line characters are included.

  • Save the Base Configuration and restart Content Server when prompted.

  • After the restart, check the validity of the newly applied license at the top of the Base Configuration page.

    When a valid license is present, the license details will be visibile to the administrator.
