Managing Licenses in Greenhouse

Greenhouse is Eggplant's portal for viewing your Eggplant Performance license assets, including temporary non-node-locked keys that have been generated for your use. If you are not a current Eggplant customer, your account manager will provide access to evaluation keys (node-locked or non-node-locked).

Using Greenhouse to Generate Node-Locked Licenses

If you are a current Eggplant customer, you'll be able to log in to Greenhouse to generate and manage your license files. Follow these steps:

  1. Start Eggplant Performance Test Controller to determine the host ID for your Eggplant Performance Controller machine, which can be viewed by navigating to Tools > Licenses.
  2. Use the Copy to clipboard button to save the host ID to the clipboard for later use; you will use it to generate your full-term licenses.
  3. Log in to your Greenhouse account.
  4. Find the appropriate item in the list of Unused Licenses:

    Note: If you are renewing an existing license, you select Renew from the drop-down list in the Actions column.
  6. On the Generate License Key page, enter the host ID for your Eggplant Performance Controller machine in the Host ID field, then click Generate License Key.

The license file is generated and displays in your Greenhouse view. You will also receive an email at the address associated with your Greenhouse account, providing information about your newly generated license.

  4. Find the license you would like to transfer in the list of Active Licenses:

    Select a license in the Greenhouse web interface to transfer it

  5. Choose Transfer from the drop-down list in the Actions column for the license.
  6. Enter the host ID into the New Host ID field:
