Supply your TeamForge license key as a text file

Your license key enables you to use CollabNet TeamForge for the period of your contract.

Your license key will only work for the IP address of the machine that your CollabNet TeamForge is running on.
Important: If you are upgrading from a site with a limited number of users to an enterprise-scale site, you must install your license key before starting CollabNet TeamForge . Otherwise, your site could be rendered inoperable.
  1. Locate the confirmation email you received from your CollabNet representative when you purchased your contract.
  2. Create a text file and copy-paste your license key from the confirmation email into it.

    For example, if your organization has 80 users who will use only the source code management features and 100 users who need the full range of application lifecycle management features, your license key string may look like this: alm=100:SCM=80:supervillaininc:

    Tip: Save this license key in case you need to reinstall CollabNet TeamForge.
  3. Save the text file as /opt/collabnet/teamforge/etc/sflicense.txt.
    Tip: Save your license key somewhere remote too, in case you need to reinstall CollabNet TeamForge and your sflicense.txt file is not accessible.
  4. Make the license file usable by the application.
    • chmod 0664 /opt/collabnet/teamforge/etc/sflicense.txt
    • chown <APP_USER>:<APP_GROUP> /opt/collabnet/teamforge/etc/sflicense.txt
    Note: Change the values of <APP_USER> and <APP_GROUP> with the values of APP_USER and APP_GROUP tokens respectively from the /opt/collabnet/teamforge/runtime/conf/runtime-options.conf file.
