The distribution portal refers to a comprehensive set of functionalities that empower vendors to enhance their existing License Managers by incorporating distribution capabilities. This enables vendors to assume the role of distributors themselves. With this feature, vendors gain the ability to create and manage their own orders, as well as add licenses to these orders, without relying on direct involvement from the software vendor.
The reseller portal grants license managers the ability to issue licenses within assigned orders while restricting them from creating new orders.

Also known as device ID, instance ID, or device fingerprint, the Hardware ID is a hash generated by our SDKs during license activation. It combines various hardware components of a computer, such as the hard disk drive and CPU. The HardwareID serves as a unique identifier for the computer, allowing it to be tracked against the maximum number of activations. If an end user attempts to activate the license on a new machine, it will consume an additional activation from the license. In some cases, developers can override the computation of the HardwareID if they have their own means of identifying the end user or use a custom device fingerprinting algorithm.
The License API is specifically designed to be accessed by clients, allowing them to activate, deactivate, and check the status of licenses for a particular software or service.
