How to Save License in Navision Database?

Hi all,

I know most of know this but still I am posting this because I was getting queries about it.

* This post only applies to classic client.

Scenario -
While Testing a customization Developed for a customer?

The Development team have completed their task and now internal testing need to be carried. The best way to test a customization is with the customer license.

With this approach we will be able to find out the permission errors (to new objects) if any.
Issue -
The license uploaded on the server is a Partner developer license.

I know we can Change the license for our instance of Navision from Tools -> License information -> Change.

Why don't we add the license into the database so that i remain there till we have the database.

How this can be done?

While Creating Database, of if the database have been created then Navigate to File - Database - Information.

Open the integration Tab and check Boolean for Save license in database. Click Ok. System will ask you for a License file that need to be saved in the database.

What Save License in Database Does?

This setting allows you to specify that the license file is uploaded and stored in the database instead of on the server. This is useful if you are hosting several databases with separate license files on the same server.

Hope the information is useful.
