Licensing - How do I limit floating license access to specific users?

Description

I have a floating license with multiple seats. Is there a way to limit the access to specific users?

Solution

You can use the options file with the license to whitelist or blacklist specific users. Please see theLicense Administration Guidedocumentation, Chapter 12: "Managing the Options File" at:

http://kb.flexerasoftware.com/doc/DocumentRepository/Licensing/FLEXnet_Publisher/FLEXnet_Publisher_11.6/03_ISV/Product%20Manual/LicenseAdministration.pdf

The basic options file syntaxis as follows:

INCLUDE|EXCLUDE FEATURE user username

To limit access on a floating license to specific users:

  1. Create an options file named xilinxd.opt, and include the user you want to have access to this license, for example, joshual:
    INCLUDE ISE USER joshual, or
  2. Define a group to limit access to multiple users, for example, define a group for joshual and graces:
    GROUP example joshual graces
    INCLUDE ISE GROUP example
  3. Add the path to the options file in the license file on the VENDOR line. For example,
    VENDOR xilinxd [options=]/license/xilinxd.opt
