Changing the License Key Label

The license key label is used internally to identify your MadCap Central license. If you belong to multiple MadCap Central licenses, a unique label ensures that you can distinguish between them in Central. In addition, the first initial of the license, or a custom avatar, can be helpful to quickly find it (see Setting a License Avatar).

How to Change the License Key Label

  1. In the upper-right of Central, click your license avatar (or the first letter of your license if you haven't yet chosen an avatar image) and select License Settings.

  2. On the left, select Settings.
  3. Edit the Name field.
  4. Click Save. Your license key label is updated throughout MadCap Central.

Note The original license key label is based on the company name when a Central license is purchased. The same is true for the license vanity (subdomain). If your company name has a space in it, that space is automatically removed. You can add the space back when you change your license key label. However, you cannot add a space when changing the license vanity.

Note Changing the license key label changes it for all users.
