Setting licenses

Administrators assign licenses to groups so that members of that group, and members of that group's sub-groups, have access to the features contained in the license. Each license contains features that can be individually enabled and disabled.

For more information, see How licenses work and License and feature reference.

For basic information, see Groups and licenses introduction.

  • An administrator has designed the group hierarchy for your Spotfire implementation.
  • The group you want to edit is available.
  • The Spotfire distribution file, Spotfire.Dxp.sdn, is deployed on the server.


  1. Log in to Spotfire Server and click Users & Groups.
  2. On the Groups page, right-click the group that you want to edit, and then click Edit licenses.
    A list of all the available licenses is visible on the Licenses page. As indicated in the following example, a dash in the check box for the TIBCO Spotfire Connectors license means than only some of the features under the license are enabled for the group.

    A check mark instead of a dash at the license level means that all of the features under the license are enabled.

  3. Select the check boxes for the licenses and features that you want to enable for the group, and then click Save.
