Licensing System

Starting from version 19.1 the license module uses the Boyum IT portal for the licenses, therefore, when upgrading from a version older than 19.1 to version 19.1 or higher, please make sure that you have a license on the Boyum IT Portal. Consequently, the old license files should not be used any more.

For the Produmex Scan client application a terminal type license is needed. Since Produmex Scan devices have concurrent licensing, the number of required licenses depends on the number of devices that are used concurrently.

For the Produmex Scan add-on no extra SBO license is needed. The required SBO license depends on the SBO function the user will use to prepare documents for the Produmex application in the office environment, e.g. to create pick lists. Please refer to the SAP Business One official licensing documentation for more information on which SBO license type is required for your installation.

1. Boyum IT Portal - Online and offline solutions

1.1 Online solution

When you purchase the Produmex Scan add-on on the Boyum Portal, your license is generated automatically. It means that if you have active Internet connection, your license is automatically downloaded, therefore, no action is needed from your side. Please continue with section 2. Allocating Licenses.

Please note that it is important to allow outbound access to our license servers (*.boyum-it.com (port 80)) in your firewall configuration.

1.2 Offline solution

In case you are not connected automatically to the license system or you have no active internet connection, visit the offline license generator of Boyum IT Portal and get your license data by proceeding as follows.

On the appearing Get Manual License screen

1. fill in the Installation Number field,
2. select Produmex Scan – Device license in the drop-down Product list,
3. click Submit.

(For information on to how find your installation number click here.)

Get Manual License

The portal displays your license data as follows:

License data

4. Copy all the data.

5. Open the Produmex License Administration window in SAP BO via path:
Administration > Add-ons > Produmex Scan > Produmex License Administration.

6. Click Manage Boyum License.

PMX License Administration

7. Paste your license data into the License key field and click OK.

At this point your license data is imported.

Importing the license data

Please note that once you buy additional users or upgrade to a newer version, you will need to re-import your offline license and restart your Produmex Service Broker to reflect the changes.

2. Allocating Licenses

2.1. Terminal

Terminals have concurrent licensing meaning that licenses do not have to be assigned to a certain terminal, but instead the system will allow as many concurrent connections as the total number of terminals in the license.

Each time logging in on the terminal, the system will check whether there is a free license slot that can be allocated for the terminal.

  • If there is a free license, the system will allocate it to the terminal.
  • If there is no free license, an error message will be displayed.

After the logout, the system will deallocate the license from the terminal.

The current status of the license usage can be seen on a webpage of the Service Broker:

http://<IP>:<PORT>/api/admin_accesstokens

where the IP is the IP address and the PORT is the port number.

When Produmex Service Broker has multiple assigned databases, each database can have as many connections as in the license. For example, if you have a license for 3 terminals, and the Service Broker has 4 assigned databases, each database can have 3 connections and the total number of the potential concurrent connections is 12.

3. Required licenses for a Produmex Scan installation

3.1. Produmex Service Broker

Only one SAP Indirect Access User license is required per installation. Produmex Service Broker will use this user to create documents in SAP Business One.
Since the Produmex Service Broker is assigned to one SBO user, all SBO documents created with Produmex Scan devices are created by the same user.

It is possible to check the employee who created the document with the Produmex Scan device. The Employee No. of the employee is stored in an UDF on the document header.
