How can you change the floating license timeout value in IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC)?
Better utilization time by decreasing the timeout value.
The value can be changed in the Advanced Properties page of the Web UI, by navigating to the com.ibm.team.repository.service.internal.license.FloatingLicenseService section.
- The cost of a floating license is dependent on the number of people who can share a floating license.
- The current floating licenses prices were chosen assuming the two hour minimum use, and so it's not possible to adjust the minimum time without also adjusting the cost. This is discussed in Enhancement 110020 on jazz.net.
In RTC version 3.0, the the feature was implemented where the Floating License is automatically checked out when the user logs off as indicated in Enhancement 101766. This feature was implemented as a workaround to the restrictions of the two hour timeout.
As of RTC version 4.0.5, the minimum value for a floating license check out time has been decreased from 120 minutes, to 30 minutes. The default of 60 minutes can be reduced to 30 minutes by manually altering the settings. Refer to Installing and managing floating client license access keys for further information.
