Choose from two varieties of Wijmo licenses
With every developer license, you'll receive perpetual distribution licenses, which entitle you to generate distribution keys that will be used in the script code. Wijmo license holders can generate distribution keys for as many hostnames (domains) as they need. While the licenses never expire, keys are limited to upgrading version for up to a year. After that, you will need to buy a new version and create a new key.
What is a Distribution Key?
A Distribution Key is a character string that authorizes an application to use Wijmo. You can generate a Distribution Key using your account on our website. To make a Distribution Key, simply add the hostnames to be authorized and generate the key. Then you'll apply the key to your app as listed above.
How many hostnames can I add to a Distribution Key?
You can add as many individual hostnames to a distribution key as you need.
How many applications can I deploy with my purchase?
You can deploy as many applications as you wish with the standard per-developer license.
How long will my Distribution Key be valid?
All Wijmo distribution licenses are perpetual.
How do I create a distribution license for an intranet application that doesn’t have a hostname?
Licensing code uses the browsers window.location.hostname variable to check for a match with the license. So if you're accessing your intranet application by IP address, you can use that. For example, if your URL looks like https://10.0.6.9/apps/employees/, then your hostname should be 10.0.6.9. If you're accessing your intranet application by machine name--for example, if your URL looks like https://appserver03/apps/employees/, then your hostname should be appserver03.
How do I create a distribution key for a hybrid application that doesn’t have a hostname?
Application shells like Electron or Ionic often don’t have a hostname, or their hostname is localhost. To create a distribution license for these types of applications, use localhost as the hostname (unless they do have a hostname, in which case, use it).
Does Wijmo require an internet connection for licensing to work?
No, the license validation in Wijmo does NOT call back to our server and does not require any internet connection. The mechanism just validates the key and domain to make sure they are valid and match.
