This article describes how to use the GoldSim License Portal to see which licenses in your organization have been activated and who is using them. For an overview of the GoldSim License Portal, go here.
To see the statuses of multiple licenses, you need to have a GoldSim License Portal user account. If you do not have an account and would like one, contact your license administrator and ask for a new user account to be set up for you. Then, follow instructions in the "Check Using a User Name and Password" section.
Alternatively, if you have an activation ID or entitlement ID and you only want to know the status of that one license, you can log in to the License Portal with the activation ID or entitlement ID. To do this, follow instructions in the "Check Using an Activation or Entitlement ID" section, immediately below.
Check Using an Activation or Entitlement ID
To check the status of a license using the activation ID or entitlement ID, open a browser window and navigate to the License Portal login page: http://goldsim.com/LicensePortal/. Check either the option to login with an entitlement ID or the option to login with an activation ID. Paste in your ID and click 'Log in'.
Once you have logged in, hover over the 'License Support' heading and select 'List Licenses'
If you see a license in the list, this means that the license is already activated on a computer. To find out what computer the license is activated on, simply click on the fulfillment ID.
A new window will appear. Just scroll down until you see the Computer Host Name.
Check Using a User Name and Password
Assuming that you already have a GoldSim License Portal user account, open a browser window and navigate to the License Portal login page: http://goldsim.com/LicensePortal/.
After successful login, you should see the main page of the GoldSim License Portal which has a list of Activatable Entitlements (see Find an Available License to Activate for more information about Activatable Entitlements).
To see a list of all licenses that are currently activated on a machine, hover over the 'License Support' menu and select 'List Licenses'.
Selecting List Licenses will take you to a License Activation page that shows a list of all activated licenses for your organization. Each line item on the License Activation page shows a Fulfillment ID and the Activation ID for the license. A Fulfillment ID is generated when a license is activated on a machine.
Other information you see for each license on the License Activation page includes the Product name, license Version, the date on which the license was activated (Fulfill date) and the license Expiration date.
To see more information about the license, including the name of the machine on which the license was activated, click the Fulfillment ID for the license of interest. In the new window that appears, scroll all the way to the bottom. The COMPUTER_HOST_NAME is the name of the computer on which the license was activated.
