When it comes to License Management in Solution Manager, it is very important to understand the purpose of the Denodo global license that was newly introduced in Denodo Platform 7.0 to minimize the cumbersome activity of installing new licenses on multiple machines of the organization’s Denodo infrastructure.
A Denodo global license file is a multi-license file that defines all the different license scenarios, each of which has its individual features and restrictions. For example, the Production environment with the features of the production environment (number of servers, maximum number of cpus, etc.), other environments like QA/Staging and Development with their own restrictions and so on.
The Denodo License Manager server is a centralized location from where the rest of Denodo Platform 8.0 servers could obtain their license and renew it periodically. Denodo License Manager will have the global license installed and grants the license to Denodo servers as per its scenario assigned on the environment.

A Denodo global license can be installed in the following two methods:
Licenses > Install Licensetab. A Pop-up window appears so that you can drag and drop the license file or browse from your local machine.
