A cloud-served standalone license is used for any Uniface application where the license is locked to a machine, and connects to the Sentinel Cloud Server (SCC) to obtain and periodically renew the lease on the license. This is also referred to as lease mode.
Cloud-served licensing requires an internet connection to activate the license and to periodically renew the lease on the license by connecting to the SCC. If the application has no internet connection, it can still continue to run as long as the lease period has not expired.
For the Uniface 10 Community Edition, only cloud-served standalone licenses are used. For more information on how to activate your license for the Community Edition, see Install the Uniface Community Edition.
For the Enterprise Edition:
- To configure a cloud-served standalone license, see Configuring Cloud-Served Standalone Licenses.
- To return a cloud-served standalone license, see Returning Cloud-Served Standalone Licenses.
- To update a cloud-served standalone license, see Updating Cloud-Served Standalone Licenses.
Note: For the Enterprise Edition, cloud-served licensing is only possible on Windows and Linux.
