After each major version upgrade you need to insert a new license key for given Kentico version.
Are you aware of the option to generate license keys via Kentico’s client portal? If not, here are some instructions:
You can now generate license keys in the Client Portal.
After you sign in, you need to go to Licenses section where you will see an overview of all the licenses in your property.
Click on the Keys (second image button) option and you will see a list of previously generated keys for the specific license.
Here you can submit following actions:
- "Generate new full license key" - license key will be generated immediately, but will use up site limit from purchased license
- "Ask for a domain alias" - license key won't use up the license site limit and still can be generated for whatever domain name, but will require our approval
"Ask for a non -production key" - domain names with special prefixes (dev, staging, test) for one of existing main domains are allowed automatically. For other domain name, 7-day key is provided immediately and after our approval expiration can be prolonged
"Upgrade all keys to the latest version" - valid maintenance at the time of the given version release is required. Existing keys for your current version will still work until you upgrade Kentico and switch the keys.
You can also edit every license and add a project name as well as client name for better overview. Please take a look at the Client portal guide for step-by-step instructions.
Managing license keys on your own has some advantages and is a simple process. By generating license key(s) on your own, you can obtain the key immediately, and you will have a record of this key in the client portal for future reference.
