In LicenseSpring, a Product feature is an attribute that is defined for a given product, and can be added to any license issued for that product. In LicenseSpring, we define two product feature types:
Activation Features are meant to be used to turn on or off specific functionality within your licensed product, such as a component, module, or set of features.
Once defined for a product, an activation feature can be added or removed from a license, without additional functionality.
Consumption Features are meant to meter the usage of a component or resource, such as an API, the number of times a Report is generated, or amount of time (in seconds or minutes) that a resource is used.
Consumption features, like Activation features, can be added or removed from a given license. However Consumption features also have the attributes Max consumption , allow overages Boolean, a Max overages value, and a means to reset the consumption allowances periodically.
Depending on your plan you will have access to a certain number of Features and there may be limitations on the type of feature you are allowed to use.
- Feature Name
- Feature Code
- Max Consumptions
- Allow Unlimited Activations
- Allow Overages
- Max Overages
- Reset Consumption
- Consumption Period
Once you defined a product, click on the "Features" Tab, and click "Add product feature"
Give the Feature a Name, a Code, and select its type.
If the feature is of type consumption, set the default value for Max Consumption, the Value for Max Overages, as well the time interval for which the allowances should reset
Adding default allowances for a product feature can always be changed when issuing a new license, or by modifying the entitlements of an existing license. For more information, please visit the "Features" article in the "License Entitlements" section.
You can rename a product feature, and the default values for consumption features can be modified. However, you cannot change a product feature code.
If you delete a product feature, it will be removed from any licenses that are currently using it. Adding the feature back to the product will not add the feature back to the licenses. LicenseSpring does not have any concept of archiving features!
To edit a product feature, go to the features list and click on the Pencil icon on the row for that product feature.
To delete a product feature, click on the red garbage can icon on the row for that product feature.
