Welcome, FlexNet Publisher newcomers!

New to FlexNet Publisher and not sure where to start? Then this article is for you! In this guide, we outline your next steps in order to have a successful journey with the FlexNet Publisher product. 

Obtain Your Producer Information

Upon purchasing FlexNet Publisher, you should have received two emails from Revenera: 

  • Order Confirmation email:
    This email not only contains your organization's order information, but it also contains your organization's [Account ID] and [Product ID] details required to register for the Revenera Community.
    Note: Registering on the Revenera Community with your Account ID and Product ID, as well as approved access to the Product and License Center, is mandatory to download the FlexNet Publisher product and its resources. 
  • Production Keys email:
    This email contains your organization's producer information (vendor and vendor keys) required to build your FlexNet Publisher licensed application and other licensing components. 

Access the Product and Other Product Resources

1. Register for the Revenera Community

Using the Account ID and Product ID details from the order confirmation email, sign up for the Revenera Community. Check out our Welcome to the Revenera Community help article for more information.

2. Get access to the Product and License Center

If you are the original recipient of the order confirmation email, you were automatically designated your organization's Product and License Center Administrator (PLC Admin). With the PLC Admin role, you can manage Product and License Center access for your team members once they sign up for the community. This can be done using the Product and License Center User Administration page.

If you were not the original recipient of the order confirmation email, you will need to sign up for the community and request access from your PLC Admin. If you do not know who in your organization has the PLC Admin role, please contact Revenera Technical Support for assistance.

3. Download the product

Once you've gained access to the Product and License Center, navigate to Product List -> FlexNet Licensing -> FlexNet Publisher. From here you can download the FlexNet Publisher local license server and toolkit by platform. 

4. Access product documentation

Download the FlexNet Publisher Documentation Library file for developer related documentation. This is available on the Product and License Center under Product List -> FlexNet Licensing -> FlexNet Publisher -> FlexNet Publisher Documentation. For license server administration documentation, visit the FlexNet Publisher section of the Documentation Site.

Prepare Your Build Environment

Follow the instructions in the following documents to install your FlexNet Publisher toolkit and prepare your development environment:

  • FlexNet Publisher Installation Guide
