On September 22nd we announced upcoming changes to the Licensing Portal targeted at improving user experience with the tool. As a first step, we have already made access to License Key Center easier by adding links to the Support Page and Passport Advantage. You can refer to our previous blog with steps to access License Key Center.
Next week we will be releasing additional updates and improvements to the License Key Center. Among them you will see these updates that should make your experience with License Key Center easier and more efficient:
