About Product Access Management

Product access management helps you to ensure that your organization remains compliant with your license agreement. You can control usage of i2® applications so that the number of concurrent users stays within the number that is permitted by your license agreement. Product access management is an optional feature and i2 applications can be used without it.

The applications that support Product Access Management are:
  • i2 Analyst's Notebook 9.2.0, or later.
  • i2 Analyst's Notebook Premium 9.2.0, or later.
  • i2 iBase User and Designer 8.9.13, or later.
Product access management uses a server and client model to monitor application usage. Implementing product access management involves the creation, deployment, and usage of permits.
Important: The product access management feature is compatible with earlier supported versions of i2 applications, but is not always compatible with later versions. If you are upgrading from an earlier version, to ensure that your licenses are handled correctly, upgrade your license manager before you upgrade your i2 applications.

To upgrade the license manager, double-click setup.exe in the \Product Access Management\Server directory of the i2 application downloaded distribution, and follow the steps provided.
