How to Enable Cloud Monetization API Functionality on FlexNet Operations Cloud LLM

How to Enable Cloud Monetization API Functionality on FlexNet Operations Cloud LLM

Summary

The Cloud Monetization API (CMAPI) is a REST interface alternative for licensing certain software products. Support for Cloud Monetization API was introduced to FlexNet Operations Cloud LLM in 2020 R2 SP1.

Before your client application can use the Cloud Monetization API for licensing, the following two tasks must be done:

Task 1: Enable the CLS Producer User

The Producer User for the Cloud Licensing Service (CLS) is added on all existing and newly created Cloud Licensing Service instances. This user allows the Software Producer to generate the authorization tokens required to secure the Cloud Monetization API exchange.

Task 2: Set up JSON Security

The JSON Security should be configured to secure the Cloud Monetization API exchanges the client application will make with the Cloud Licensing Service instance.

 

Synopsis

This article only covers the steps to complete Task 1: Enable the CLS Producer User.

For in-depth instructions related to Task 2: Set Up JSON Security, please refer to the Cloud Monetization API User Guide and the FlexNet Embedded License Server Producer Guide, which are available on the Product and License Center.

 

Discussion

NOTE: The following task can only be performed by your organization’s FlexNet Operations Cloud System Administrator or a trusted member with the Manage FlexNet Secret Keys (KEYS) permission.

To enable the CLS Producer User on your FlexNet Operations Cloud LLM environment:

1. Log into the FlexNet Operations Cloud LLM Producer Portal

2. Navigate to Manage Hosts -> Producer User For CLS
