License Administration: Swap Users


In your Team License (cloud-based user administration), you want to swap users. 


  1. Go to your team license account in the license administration:
  2. In the License Administration: Remove the previous user from this license.

  3. Map the new user to the license. For details, see: How to map Users

    After 30 days, activation will be possible with the new user.

    You can check how long the previous user still is activated by checking the "Activation expires" date in the license manager of the previous user.

  4. If the swap has to take place earlier than 30 days in the future, we immediately can deactivate an existing activation for you on demand.

    Then, your new user can reactivate immediately according to your new user mapping.

    To request an immediate deactivation, send an email to with the User-ID of the user, who is to be de-activated.

    See here for how to find the user ID:
