I have my Timetracker subscription ID; how do I activate it?
This article refers to 7pace Timetracker for TFS.
Timetracker can be activated with two methods - online and offline.
The online activation is available since Timetracker version 2.8 and requires an internet connection for the server running the Timetracker server. Support for a proxy server is available since version 2.8.1.
The online activation is the recommended way to activate Timetracker and comes with these benefits:
- On renewal, the activation continues without interruption of service
- You only need to apply the subscription ID once
- Changes to your subscription appear immediately in all your server systems
How to apply:
Please make sure to copy your Subscription ID to the page Time > Configuration > License, available from the web access of Team Foundation Server (typically, this is the URL to that page: http://[your-internal-hostname]:8080/tfs/DefaultCollection/Timetracker/_apps/hub/Berichthaus.TfsTimetrackerOnPremises.Configuration.)
You will find the subscription ID on any invoice or mail from the commerce system.
Troubleshooting: Server not connected to the internet
In case your server cannot connect to the internet, please contact support at email@example.com. We will issue a file for offline activation for you.
