Start a trial

To start a trial period:

  1. Sign in using your My Axis account. If you don’t have an account yet, go to to create one.

  2. Go to the product page of the software of your choice.

  3. Launch the software.

The software will offer a trial period where you will have access to full functionality for a limited time.

The software trials within you organization will be visible in the Product list. If you are happy with the software and wish to continue using it, you need to start a subscription and purchase licenses for the software.

Start a subscription

The first step to license your product is to start a subscription. When you have started your subscription, you get a grace period of 30 days to buy license, redeem license keys and allocate the licenses to continue using the software.

  1. Go to AXIS License Manager (web application).

  2. Select the organization to manage in the top bar menu.

  3. Important

    Check to see that you have chosen the correct organization, as there is currently no way of transferring licenses between organizations.

  4. Select the product you want to start a subscription for.

  5. In the Product overview, click Start your subscription.

  6. Follow the on screen instructions.

In the Product overview, the License status should now read Subscription has started. The end of the grace period is also displayed.

Buy licenses

If you don't have a license yet, get in touch with a system integrator or a reseller. To find a suitable system integrator or reseller, go to Product list and click on the link Where to buy licenses to get information on local system integrators or resellers from all over the world based on your location.

See how many licenses you need

To find out how many licenses you need to buy to get licensed for the subscription year, go to the Product licensing tab. The reported usage number is your need of licenses.

Redeem license key

The license key includes the number of licenses bought for one product. When you redeem the license key in AXIS License Manager, all the included licenses will be added to your Product wallet to be allocated later.


Check to see that the organization is the correct one, as there is currently no way of transferring licenses between organizations.

  1. Select the product you want to redeem licenses for.

  2. Go to Product wallet.

  3. Type or paste the license key.

  4. Click Redeem license key.

Allocate and license

To get licensed you need to allocate licenses from your product wallet to the subscription year. When the number of allocated licenses match the reported usage you will become licensed.

  1. Select the product you want to allocate licenses for.

  2. Go to Product licensing.

  3. Confirm the number of Licenses to be allocated.

  4. Click Allocate and license. If that option isn’t available, you haven’t enough licenses in you product wallet to match the reported usage.

  5. Click Confirm to confirm the allocation of the licenses for the stated subscription period.

Your product is now licensed.

If you have allocated licenses during the ongoing subscription year, you will be compensated for the overlapping time of those licenses. New licenses will automatically be added back to your wallet, matching the overlapping time.

Store licenses for future use

To make the process of adding licenses easier, you can buy more licenses than you currently use. Any additional licenses will be stored in the Wallet for a maximum of five years, and can be used to renew your subscriptions at the next renewal period. Go to the Product wallet to see the number of licenses you have in storage for your product.

Review activity history

To review your organization’s previous activity, go to History. There you can see who in your organization allocated licenses or redeemed a license key and when it happened.
