How do I manually activate a license ? (FAQ150)

How do I manually activate a license in the new Software Potential UI? It appears the Manual Activation option is no longer available in the revised portal UI.

At the request of our customers we’ve launched a new public manual activations service at where you and your customers can manually activate licenses.

This replaces the old manual activation page in the Software Potential portal and allows customers to manually activate licenses without having to involve you the license vendor in the process as was the case in the past.

To manually activate a license using this new service just upload a text file containing the activation request string and download the license file on successful activation. Detailed instructions are on the manual activation site.
