      When the license key is approved, ASoC displays the message Registration Successful.

Additional information about subscriptions

Automating scans

If you have a Professional (pay per application) subscription, and use a custom script to scan your app automatically, the script should not create a new application in ASoC for each scan, as this will consume your subscription unnecessarily. Instead, after the first scan you should Rescan (recommended) or run a new scan in the same application.

Deleting applications

If you have a Professional (pay per application) subscription, applications you create can be deleted only if you have not yet run a scan in them. Once you have run a scan in an application, the application cannot be deleted, as it counts towards your subscription limit.

Expired subscriptions

When a Professional (pay per application) subscription expires, the application counter is reset, and you can optionally associate its applications with another subscription.

Mixed subscriptions

If your organization has purchased both Professional (pay per application) and Standard (pay per scan) subscriptions, when you create an application you will be asked which subscription you want it assigned to. If none is assigned when the application is created, you will need to assign it when you scan.
Note: An application can be assigned to a subscription only by users with Administrator, Manager or Application Manager permissions.
