Configuring License

OSLC Connect for Jira license is a file with a lic extension that must be provided along with the product when it was acquired or a demo is requested. It needs to be the first thing you configure after the installation because it is required to configure everything else.

Here are the steps to configure the license:

  1. Enter to the JIRA ADMINISTRATION > Manage apps page.
  2. On the left panel, click on the License option in the OSLC Connect section.
  3. On the right panel, click on the License field.
  4. Use the opened dialog to locate and select the license file from your file system.
  5. Once the file is selected and the dialog is closed, click on the Upload button.

If everything went ok, the Features area will be updated to display the current status of each feature according to the uploaded license. The available features are:

OSLC Connect For Jira
Provides general access to this app.
 
Global Configuration
Enables linking to OSLC applications in a Global Configuration context.
 
Tracked Resource Set
Enables OSLC indexing and reporting applications to poll Jira issues.

All license files come with at least the first feature granted which provides general access/use to the app. Additional features are optional and can be acquired separately if required [1]. When a feature is granted, you will see the message: This feature is granted. in the corresponding feature area; otherwise, you will see the corresponding error/restriction message and app users will still be able to navigate to the corresponding feature pages [2], but they won't be able to change/create anything [3], an error message will constantly remind them the license/feature issue.

Configuring the license must be considered as a prerequisite for all other configurations.
