How to get a list all users with the "TIBCO Spotfire Analyst" license from the TIBCO Spotfire Server
This article describes a way to get a list of all users having the "TIBCO Spotfire Analyst" license enabled, and more generally get a report of all licenses set on the TIBCO Spotfire Server. The show-licences command can be used to create a report file that shows the licenses set on the server. On the computer running Spotfire Server, open a command line as an administrator and change the directory to the location of the config.bat file (config.sh on Linux). The default location is <server installation dir>/tomcat/spotfire-bin. This is where you execute commands. For example:
config show-licenses --expand-groups=true --force-overwrite=true
You can read the resulting file in Spotfire. The file has headers that explain the contents displayed in the columns. The column "From Group" contains the group on which the license is explicitly set. For every group that has a license set explicitly, the resulting groups and users (if the expand option is set) are shown once.
Users get the sum of all licenses (and functions). When you analyze the file, note that a user and a license might occur more than once if the user gets its licenses from more than one group with explicit licenses set.
The number of licenses are calculated as follows:
- The number of Spotfire Analyst licenses is equal to the number of unique users in all groups with the TIBCO Spotfire Analyst (Spotfire.Dxp.Professional) license enabled.
- The number of Spotfire Business Author (Spotfire.Dxp.WebAnalyzer) licenses is equal to the number of unique users in all groups with the TIBCO Spotfire Business Author licenses enabled minus Number of Spotfire Analyst licenses.
- The number of Spotfire Consumer licenses is equal to the number of unique users in all groups with the the TIBCO Spotfire Consumer (Spotfire.Dxp.WebPlayer) license or the TIBCO Spotfire Enterprise Player(Spotfire.Dxp.EnterprisePlayer) license enabled minus the number of Spotfire Business Author licenses minus the number of Spotfire Analyst licenses.??????
