How do I switch back to the ALM built-in license management mechanism from AutoPass License Server?

Question ID: 110121

Our organization installed and configured our ALM instance to use the new AutoPass License Server license mechanism feature, but we need to revert back to the built-in license management mechanism as we no longer plan to use AutoPass.  Is this possible, and if so, how?

To switch from the AutoPass License Server mechanism to the ALM built-in license management mechanism, edit the file found in the <ALM repository>saAdminMaintenanceDataconf directory and remove the following parameters or set their values as blank:


Save the file and bounce the ALM Windows Service.  ALM will now use the built-in license management mechanism.  Install your license via ALM Site Admin > Licenses if needed.

This worked perfectly! Our ALM instance now uses the built-in license management mechanism, and we are now able to retire our APLS server machine.
