How do I add named users to my BLS Server?


The user list file controls users and products they are licensed to use. For named user licenses, this file is called userlist.txt and is located in the \conf directory. A user is guaranteed to obtain a product license as long as his/her name is in this file and he or she is connected to the server.

The entries in the user list file must be in one of two formats:

For new suite products, such as JBuilder X Enterprise Suite, there is one identifier per suite, per user. In this example, the user jsmith is registered for one copy of JBuilder X Enterprise Suite that includes the JBuilder product and 4 Optimizeit products:

jsmith, *, 100_1_1, 30(This format is supported by the Borland License Server version 2.32 and above.)

For products registered with a version of the Borland License Server prior to version 2.32, there is one product id code and one sku id code for each single product or each single product in a suite. For example, the following entries register the user pjohnson for the JBuilder 9 Enterprise Suite, that includes the JBuilder product and 3 Optimizeit products:

  • pjohnson, *, 1085, 2, 30
  • pjohnson, *, 9102, 0, 30
  • pjohnson, *, 9202, 0, 30
  • pjohnson, *, 9302, 0, 30

(This format has been deprecated in the Borland License Server version 2.32, but is still supported.)

Critical: The identifier you enter into your userlist.txt file is in the readme.txt file. You MUST read this file to find the values to enter.
