How do I manage and distribute licenses within my organization?


Assigning licenses

As the person responsible for handling licenses, you can distribute licenses to individuals from within the JetBrains Account. Licenses can be distributed in two ways:

Via an invitation link.

You send out a URL, and anyone that can access the URL can request a license. They then connect this license with their JetBrains Account (which they can create if they don't already have one). Once connected, they can activate the subscription from within the product itself using their JetBrains Account.

Direct assignments via email.

You can assign licenses to an individual or multiple individuals by providing their first name, last name, and email address. 


Offline Activation Codes and Perpetual Fallback License

When assigning licenses, the recipients will also receive an offline activation code which serves if they have a connectivity issue. This offline activation code is also the perpetual fallback license for subscriptions that are 12 months in duration.
