License and Components Interface

Last Updated: Mar 16, 2019 10:45AM PDT
This article explains the SSProtect License and Components interface, with links to other articles with additional configuration detail.

SSProtect uses a single License for each Account to determine rights and permissions to KODiAC Cloud Services, which in turn grant access to other managed materials. Licensing specifics are described in the article SSProtect Licensing.

License and Components Interface
This display is available, from the context menu, to all Users. An Organization AdministratorDelegate, and Individual Account holder can make changes, which apply to all Accounts in an Organization, or to your Individual Account. The interface 
allows you to update/ install the software, request component activation, modified global options, and/ or migrate your Individual Account to an Organization:

Updating and Installing
On the right side of the display, you will see two buttons that allow you to manually launch an update or installation of the :Foundation Client or :Email Outlook Add-In (respectively). This is independent from the Automatic Update procedure executed each time you Login to your Account. Refer to the articles, Updating your Account and, 1st Time Use for associated details.

Install :Email is automated in full, first providing insight into whether or not your Outlook Add-In is installed, up to date, or newer/ older than the latest release. Follow prompts to have the system acquire and install/ update the latest Add-In.

Update Client provides a facility for updating the :Foundation Client to a specific version, available as described in the article, Where Do I Find The Software? 

License, Server, and Organization Data
The top portion of the display provides License details along with KODiAC Cloud Services connectivity specifics. Use Extend to submit a request for License Period changes, or submit a request directly to Support when the button isn't enabled.

Convert allows Individual Account holders to create an Organization managing additional Accounts. Refer to 
the article, Converting to an Organization Account, for details.

Component Configuration
In the License control group, you will see a set of indicators associated with SSProtect components. For components that aren't enabled, there is a <component> Request indicator next to a checkbox you can use to dispatch a request for activation. Requests are handled individually, and may require contact with authorized personnel in your Organization.

When a component activation request is granted, it is applied to all Accounts in the Organization you manage (as the Administrator or Delegate) - or to only your Individual Account. Components are activated and managed differently, with details in the article, Adding Feature Components.

Conversion Mode Settings
These options apply to Conversion as described in the article, Operating Modes. Choose each option and acknowledge subsequent prompts. Changes apply to all Accounts in your Organization (or to your Individual Account).

Version Chain Policy
Version Chaining is described in an independent article, Version Chain Policy. This must be enabled by Support before you can make changes. Changes to these options result in a prompt if not an immediate Refresh Login on modification, as they apply immediately.
