C/C++test can run on either a local or a network license. The license type can be configured in the .properties configuration file in the INSTALL_DIR (or another location; see Configuration Overview for details).
Terms of Parasoft End User License Agreement
You must agree to the terms of the Parasoft End User License Agreement (EULA) to use C/C++test. The EULA is available in the C/C++test installation directory and at https://www.parasoft.com/license. To accept the EULA, enable the following setting in your cpptestcli.properties configuration file:
Typically, the network license is stored in License Server deployed on the same DTP server that you configured for your development testing workflow (see Connecting to DTP). This is a "floating" or "machine-locked" license that limits usage to a specified number of machines.
Network licenses are available in three editions that determine what functionality is available:
desktop_edition: Functionality is optimized for desktop usage.
desktop_compliance_edition: Functionality is optimized for desktop usage and configured to support compliance with coding standards.
server_edition: Functionality is configured for high-performance usage in server command line mode.
server_compliance_edition: Functionality is configured for high-performance usage in server command line mode and includes support for compliance with coding standards.
custom_edition: Functionality can be customized. See cpptest.license.custom_edition_features for details.
To configure the network license, specify the following settings in the
- Ensure that the connection with DTP is configured; see Connecting to DTP.
Retrieving License from Secondary DTP or Standalone License Server
You can configure C/C++test to obtain the network license from another instance of DTP or a standalone License Server.
Enable the connection by configuring the following setting:
Configure the following settings to use a license from a standalone License Server or from another DTP:
license.network.url=<URL to a DTP server>
license.network.user=<username for DTP authentication>
license.network.password=<password for DTP authentication>
license.network.url=<URL to a standalone License Server>
Connecting via OpenID Connect
If OpenID Connect is enabled for your secondary DTP server or standalone License Server, configure the connection to the OpenID Connect server; see Configuring OpenID Connect.
To configure the local license, specify the following settings in the
cpptest.license.local.passwordproperty with your password.
Obtaining the Machine ID
If you are using a local license, you will need your machine ID to request a password from Parasoft. Run the following command from the command line to obtain your machine ID:
Machine ID for Cloud Environments
If you are using Azure or AWS services, you need to configure the
cloudvm option in the
.properties configuration file to ensure that your machine ID is properly calculated. You can set the option to one of the following values:
azure- Enables integration with Azure
aws- Enables integration with AWS
true- Enables integration with the automatically detected cloud computing platform
false- Disables integration (the default value)
If you set the value to
false or if the option is not configured, integration with Azure or AWS is disabled.
