Administrator's release notes: Updates in bypass.ini

You can bypass the login screen by using a separate .ini file where you set the following advanced options.

  • XS_LICENSE_SERVER_HOST to set license server name (https for Online licenses):

    XS_​LICENSE_​SERVER_​HOST=https

  • XS_DEFAULT_LICENSE to set the default license for a user role:

    XS_​DEFAULT_​LICENSE=CARBON

    XS_DEFAULT_LICENSE=GRAPHITE

    XS_DEFAULT_LICENSE=DIAMOND

  • XS_DEFAULT_ENVIRONMENT points to the environment-specific .ini file.

  • XS_DEFAULT_ROLE points to the role-specific .ini file.

Environments have an example of the bypass.ini file.

The content of such a file could be, for example:

set XS_LICENSE_SERVER_HOST=27007@MY_LICENSE_SERVER_NAME
set XS_DEFAULT_LICENSE=FULL
set XS_DEFAULT_ENVIRONMENT=%XSDATADIR%\Environments\uk\env_UK.ini 
set XS_DEFAULT_ROLE=%XSDATADIR%\Environments\uk\role_Engineer.ini

New Online licenses require updates in bypass.ini.
