License management

System Administrators can access and manage their Acunetix license details on the Settings page. This includes viewing your license key, expiration date, number of licensed targets, how many license targets have been used, and the number of network targets.

This article explains how to check license usage and how Acunetix On-Premises customers can update their license key.

How to check license usage

  1. Log in to Acunetix.
  2. Select Settings from the side menu.
  3. Select the Subscription tab.
  4. Click the count summary for Licensed targets used.

  1. The FQDNs page shows the following information:
  1. How many different FQDNs you have used from your license allocation.
  2. The current status of each license.
  3. The number of Targets you have defined for each specific FQDN.
  4. Whether the FQDN is configured on your local Acunetix installation or on another installation.

NOTE: FQDNs that are licensed but not configured locally will have the FQDN partially obfuscated.

Understanding license usage

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.

From the FQDNs page, 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.

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