License Guide

To use Valamis, you must have a license. This short guide describes how to obtain and upload a license to Valamis. 

1. Obtaining the license

The license can be either a 30-day trial license or a full-value license. Depending on which one you want, the process of obtaining it can differ. Both ways are described further.

You must have the Valamis environment set up for this step. To install it, follow the installation instructions here.

Once you have Valamis up and running, open the Valamis Administration portlet and go to the License tab.

To access this portlet in Liferay 6, you can either add it to any page, find it in Site Administration ContentValamis Administration or use the following relative URL to this portlet:

<your domain name>/group/control_panel/manage?p_p_id=SCORMApplicationAdmin_WAR_learnportlet

To access Valamis Administration in Liferay 7, add it to any page.

The Hardware Id shown in this tab will be used in the process of obtaining the license.

Note: If you've downloaded Valamis Enterprise Edition from Liferay Marketplace, you still need to receive the license from us in addition to the one from the Marketplace by following the corresponding instructions below (full-value license).
