License management

You can manage your Acunetix license on the Settings > Subscription page. This article explains how to check how many license targets have been used and how Acunetix On-Premises customers can update their license key.

Tip: Only System Administrators can access this setting.

Checking license usage

The Subscription page provides information about your license usage. Click the count summary of Licensed targets used to view the FQDNs page.

The FQDNs page shows details of how many different FQDNs you have used from your license allocation, the number of Targets you have defined for each specific FQDN, and an indicator showing whether the FQDN is configured on your local Acunetix installation or on some other installation. Note that FQDNs that are licensed but not configured locally will have the FQDN partially obfuscated.

Tip: For further information about the relationship between Targets, FQDNs, and Licenses, refer to What is a Target?

Even though you may define multiple Targets that refer to the same FQDN, it is in fact the number of FQDNs that count against your license allocation. The example below demonstrates that we have 2 Targets defined for the "" FQDN, but only 1 license is consumed.

You can drill down further into the locally configured FQDNs, by clicking on one of the FQDNs in the list. You will reach a filtered list of all the Targets you have created that relate to the FQDN you clicked on the previous page.
