Manage the SPS license

You can display information about the currently used SPS license from the https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/management/license endpoint.


Accessing the One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) host directly using SSH is not recommended or supported, except for troubleshooting purposes. In such case, the One Identity Support Team will give you exact instructions on what to do to solve the problem.

For security reasons, disable SSH access to SPS when it is not needed. For details, see "Enabling SSH access to the One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) host" in the Administration Guide.

The following encryption algorithms are configured on the local SSH service of SPS:

  • Key exchange (KEX) algorithms:

  • Ciphers:

  • Message authentication codes:

GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/management/license
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Sample request

The following command lists the configuration options.

curl --cookie cookies -H "Content-Type: application/json"

Upload a new license

To upload a new license file, complete the following steps.

  1. Download your license file from support portal.

  2. Open a transaction.

    For details, see Open a transaction.

  3. Upload the license file.

    Upload the file to the https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/upload/license endpoint. For example:

    curl --cookie cookies -F 'data=@/path/license.txt' -H "Expect:" --insecure https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/upload/license
  4. Restart the traffic on SPS.

    SPS will not use the new license to ongoing sessions. For the new license to take full effect, you must restart all traffic on the Basic Settings > System > Traffic control page of the SPS web interface.

    curl --cookie cookies -F 'data=@/path/license.txt' -H "Expect:" --insecure https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/upload/license
