Creating a Product and Entitlement

Creating a Product and Entitlement in the Zentitle UI for testing

In order for the demo to work, you will need to add a new entitlement with the right features and attributes to match those in the demo app.

First, read the documentation and fully understand the product paradigm and how to set up a product and its parts, including an entitlement, with activation codes.

Once you are familiar with how Zentitle2 works, you can set up the specific parameters required to run the demo successfully - all these changes are required to allow you to test successfully.

Steps to match the server side with the demo app:

  • Add features with the following keys one by one: AAC, FLAC, MP3, OGG, OPUS, and WAV. Set the "value" to Enabled for them all. Click Save, and repeat.

  • Add two string attributes with the following keys: Company, Plan. Click Save, and repeat.

  • Add a consumption token with the key FilesToConvert. Set the value to 10 (conversions) and click save.

  • Add an element pool with the key Threads. Set the value to 4 (conversions) and click save.

The next tab is editions. We will use the default edition (no need to edit the edition part) so go to the next tab, "Offerings".

Edit the offering parameters exactly as below:

  • Give the offering a name e.g. Standard

  • Add in a short dummy SKU

  • Leave the edition as default

  • Pick a plan from the existing examples (e.g., a one-year subscription).

  • Set the seat count e.g. 1

  • Set the mode e.g. concurrent

  • Click Save

  • Navigate to the "entitlements" option in the left navigation or the last tab when editing a product.

  • Click Add

  • Next, build up the offering from the "parts" discussed above, starting with the "product" in the system you want to use for this offering, choosing from the dropdown menu. If you start in the product section the product name is pre-selected, otherwise you will need to set that to your test product.

  • Select the test offering

  • Skip the customer

  • Add order ref as you wish

  • Click save

  • Fill in the company and plan attribute to your test values, e.g., "Boeing" for the company name and "Standard" for the plan name for example.

  • The rest of the parameters should be prefilled.

  • Click save.

  • Go the bottom of the new entitlement page, on the bottom right is the activation codes section. Click add.

  • Click Generate

  • Add 10 (or whatever number of codes you like)

  • Click Save

  • Now you will see your codes ready to use in the codes section.

  • You can copy a code to the clipboard ready to paste into the OnPremDemoApp on your desktop or export the codes for testing later.

You are now all set to move to the desktop app, keep the Zentitle UI open as well so you can see what happens on the server when you perform actions on the desktop client.
