Vuforia License Manager

The License Manager provides you with the tools and information you need to create and manage your licenses. Whether you are developing or deploying an app, you need a license key. 
Creating a license key is simple.

  1. Select a Project Type
    • Development - develop for free before upgrading to a commercial license
    • Consumer - create apps for public distribution
    • Enterprise - create apps for enterprise distribution
  2. Select an application type if you are developing a Consumer or Enterprise app
  3. Name your App
  4. Review your licensing options and select one that suits your needs
  5. Confirm your selection and get a license key for your app. 

Each license key can only be used in a single app. You will need to create a unique license key for each Vuforia app that you develop, though you can use the same license key for all OS versions of the app supported by your license type.

To use the License Manager, you need an active Vuforia developer account.

How To Cancel a License

License keys can be both cancelled and deleted. Canceling a key deactivates that key's license and any monthly plans, but retains a record of both in the License Manager. Deleting a key both cancels the key and removes its records from the License Manager. Cancellations are effective the end of the day the cancellation request is submitted. 

Pro plans may be subject to different cancellation terms based on their plan agreement.  Selecting “Cancel” for Pro plans submits a request to Vuforia Support. 

Note that Development and Classic plans can only be deleted. Deletion of these keys also cancels the license. 

For Cloud and Pro licenses

  1. Login to the License Manager 
  2. Select the license you want to cancel
  3. Click on the “Cancel” link on the license details tab
  4. Enter YES in the confirmation field and then press Confirm.
  5. You will receive an email confirmation canceling the application license key
  6. You can then delete the key from the license details panel for your cancelled key

Note that deleting a Cloud or Pro license will automatically cancel the license key if it hasn't already been cancelled.
