License Assignment Editor
The LAE is sourced from another ABB product where assignment may be required to guarantee a node to always have a license seat. In System 800xA assignment of licenses is not required; we promote "floating" (not assigned) licenses. Assigning a license will reduce the number of available license seats by one.
I use the LAE for the following actions:
- Verification of a successfully running Central Licensing Server, CLS.
The LAE is a HTTP URL, you can call it from a web browser in any node in the domain/workgroup to verify that CLS is running.
- Viewing available licenses, quantities and expiry dates.
- Viewing actively in use licenses and from which node they have been allocated, e.g. who has depleted all "Control Builder M" license seats.
Call LAE, then click the Diagnostics button at the bottom.
