Does my key change when I renew my maintenance?

Yes, all subscription keys change when they are renewed. They differ from a perpetual license in this aspect. All subscription customers are encouraged to use the “Assigned To” field on the customer portal in order to track their keys. Once the key changes, the “Assigned To” field remains the same allowing to easily keep track of keys and users.

However, there is an easy way to avoid having to manually activate a renewed key. If a subscription key’s renewal is renewed before the key expires, you can refresh their maintenance within the product. See instructions here. The product will then update to the new key without needing to type in the new key.

If you renew a key after the subscription has expired, you will need to enter the new key into the product to activate once again. Refreshing the key in the product will not work after a key has expired.

You will see the new key in the customer portal after you renew.

How can I get a report for all of my keys?

These step-by-step instructions will show you how to pull a report on your keys from within the portal.

How do I assign/re-assign a key?

When you purchase multiple eLearning registrations, you will receive one key for the specific number of registrations purchased.
