Sharing the License File and Installation Script

This topic describes how to share the license file and installation script with your customers so that they can install your application.

For more information about how customers use the license file and installation script to install your application, see Overview of installing an application with Replicated app manager.

Share the License File

After you create a customer, assign the customer to a channel, and define the customer's license file in the Replicated vendor portal, you can share the license file with your customer.

Your customer uploads the license file to the Replicated admin console when they are installing your application.

To share the license file with a customer, you can do one of the following:

Download and Share the License File

To download and share the license file:

  1. In the vendor portal, on the Customer page, click on the name of the customer.
  2. Click the download license icon on the right side of the row.
  3. In the Opening filename dialog, use the Save File default and click OK. The file is saved to your Downloads folder by default.
  4. Send the license file to your customer along with their installation script. See Share the installation script.

Share the License File through the Download Portal

To share the license file through the download portal:

  1. In the vendor portal, on the Customer page, click on the name of the customer.
  2. In the Download portal section, click Generate new password.
  3. Save the password that appears in the pop-up window. Your customer uses this password to log in to the download portal.
  4. Click Copy URL to copy the URL to the download portal to your clipboard. This is the URL where your customer can access the download portal.
  5. (Optional) Click Visit download portal to log in to the download portal and preview your customer's experience.
  6. Send the URL and password for the download portal to your customer along with their installation script. See Share the installation script.

Share the Installation Script

In the vendor portal, Replicated provides installation scripts that your customer can use to install your application.

There are installation scripts unique to each channel. Within each channel, there is a script for installations on an existing cluster and for installations on a Kubernetes installer-created cluster (embedded cluster).

To locate and share the installation script with your customer:

  1. In the vendor portal, on the Channels page, find the channel to which the customer is assigned.
  2. Under Install:
    • Click Existing Cluster if your customer will install your application on an existing Kubernetes cluster.
    • Click Embedded Cluster if your customer does not have an existing Kubernetes cluster and will install your application on a cluster created by the Kubernetes installer.
  3. Copy the command displayed and send it to your customer along with their license file.
