One basic action that is needed is for the
Web service that connects CodeMeter License
Central with Salesforce to be made known in
Salesforce. For this purpose, it needs to be
entered and set up as a remote site in the
Remote Site Settings in Administration Setup
> Security Controls (see P3).
Finally, a few lines of VisualForce markup code
need to be produced for the Web service of
CodeMeter License Central to be accessed
by Salesforce with the right parameters for
creating the request. As a result, the Web
service returns the ticket to Salesforce (see P4).

Now a new request can be created in
CodeMeter License Central directly from
Salesfor ce. The resulting ticket is made
available for further use, such as its delivery
to the client by email or as a Ticket ID on the
customer’s delivery papers.
How do the licenses reach the
It’s not until the last steps of the process that
the customer comes into play. The customer
retrieves the licenses by using the created
ticket (e.g., via the License Central WebDepot).
The licenses are copied to a CmStick connected
to the user’s PC. If the ISV chooses to use
software-based licenses, the customer can
activate these directly on his or her PC by
following the same route (see P5).
P4: VisualForce code created in Salesforce
Combining CRM or ERP systems with
CodeMeter License Central allows the
professional distribution and monitoring of
licenses. Comprehensive Web services allow
the entire license administration and activation
functionality of License Central to be integrated
into an already established back-office system.
This sample based on Salesforce shows that
this is not only the case for familiar in-house
systems like SAP or similar options, but also
for cloud-based solutions.
All systems that allow the integration of Web
services can integrate the license management
functions transparently and with little effort.
And if you need some help or don’t want to
do it yourself, our Professional Service Team
is always available to help you achieve this
