How do I activate my Shiny Server Pro license on a server with no internet connection?

Follow

If your system has no connection to the internet, it is possible to perform an offline activation. To do this, you first generate an offline activation request as follows:

$ sudo /opt/shiny-server/bin/license-manager activate-offline-request <product-key>

Executing this command will print an offline activation request to the terminal, which you should copy and send to RStudio customer support (support@rstudio.com). You will receive a reply with a file attachment that can be used to activate offline as follows:

$ sudo /opt/shiny-server/bin/license-manager activate-offline <activation-file>
$ sudo reload shiny-server  # or "sudo /sbin/service shiny-server reload"

Note that you need to reload or restart the server in order for licensing changes to take effect.

If you want to move your license of Shiny Server Professional to another system, you can also perform license deactivation offline. You can do this as follows:

$ sudo /opt/shiny-server/bin/license-manager deactivate-offline

Executing this command will print an offline deactivation request to the terminal, which you should copy and send to RStudio customer support (support@rstudio.com).

You can also perform an offline check of your current license status using the following command:

$ sudo /opt/shiny-server/bin/license-manager status-offline
