Installing and Licensing the Team License Server (TLS)

Prior to Eggplant Functional version 16.10, Eggplant Functional used Team License Server (TLS) for license management. If you are using TLS, you can continue to do so for existing licenses. For questions about licensing in your environment, contact your account manager or sales@eggplant.io.

Starting with Eggplant Functional 16.10, you can use Reprise License Manager (RLM) for team license management. See Using RLM for Team License Management for information.

Below you will find information about installing and licensing TLS for use with Eggplant Functional.

Before Installation

Generate a License

Before installing the Team License Server (TLS), you will need to generate the license for it. TLS uses a node-locked license, which you can generate in Greenhouse, TestPlant's web-based license management portal. The process is the same as for node-locked licenses for Eggplant Functional. See Generating Node-Locked Licenses for instructions.

If You Are Updating

If you have previously installed the TLS and you are updating it, make sure that it is not running before attempting to download and install a new version.

Step by Step: Installing and Licensing the TLS

See instructions below for installing and licensing the TLS on all platforms:

On Mac

The first step of the Team License Server installation process is to download Eggplant Functional from the downloads page of our website.
