Need to reserve a license so it's always available for a particular user, hostname, display name, group, etc.? Need to allow or deny the use of features to a user, group hostname, etc? Need to set the idle timeout for participating Ansys products and more? While this take a little time and consideration depending on your use case, this can all be accomplished via an options file.
- Start by reviewing section 4.5 (pg 49) in the Ansys License Management Guide
- Next review page 144 in the FlexNet Publisher 2019 R2 - License Administration Guide.pdf for how to create your options file based on your specific requirements.
- Other references you may find helpful when identifying what specific license features you need to control.
