Configuring named user licenses

As an administrator, you can configure certain options in the License Configuration page, so that licensed users can perform various operations such as creating a project, running tests, and so on.

Before you begin

You must have completed the following tasks:

  • Installed the product and signed up as a user on HCL OneTest Server.

  • Been assigned the role as an administrator of HCL OneTest Server.

About this task

As an administrator, you can assign the role of an administrator to any user. For information about how to change the role, see Default user administration at the Related information section.
Note: When your role is changed from a user to an administrator, you must log out and log in again so that HCL OneTest Server can apply the change in your role.


  1. Log in to HCL OneTest Server.

    The License Configuration page is displayed for the first time you log in if the licenses are not configured.

    Alternatively, you can click Manage > Licenses.

  2. Select the Disable automatic self-acquisition of named user licenses option if you do not want to self-acquire named users license on a first-come-first-serve basis.
    • When you clear this option, any user can get a license when sufficient licenses are available.

    • When you select this option, only such users who are added to the Named Users list get a license to use HCL OneTest Server. If other users try to perform any project operations in HCL OneTest Server, they cannot get a license even if sufficient licenses are available.

  3. Enter the values in the OneTest License Server URL and OneTest License Server ID fields to install the licenses on the FlexNet Operations server.
  4. Click Configure to apply the license configuration.
  5. Enter the name or the email ID of the user in the Add named users field, and then select the name from the list that displays to add members to the Named Users list.
    Note: You can press the Ctrl key to select multiple users simultaneously.
  6. Click Add to make selected users as the named users.


You have configured the license server. You can view the number of named users licenses that are currently in use in the License usage section.
