Reintroduction of CLI license Check

We will be enforcing the license check for CLI executions. It is highly recommended that all users ensure they have a valid license for any CLI execution. 

To ensure a seamless experience, we advise all users to test the CLI license validation. This will allow you to proactively address potential challenges in your local or server environment before we enforce the mandatory license check in future releases. Find more information here.


1. What is a CLI license check?

Similar to GUI, Provar checks for the license at the start of command line execution (ANT/ProvarDx)

2. How to enable this feature to try?

Users must enable this feature flag using com.provar.licensecheck.cli=true in the file. To set the feature flag, follow the instructions here.

3. What is the change, and how has it been working so far?

In case of an invalid or no license, Provar was allocating a temporary license and the warning to execute the Provar test cases using the command line. With this change, Provar is stopping to allocate a temporary license in case of an invalid or No license.

4. What do I need to do?

Users must use a valid license to execute the script via the command line (ANT/ProvarDx).

5. How can I ensure my setup is correct

Users can enable the CLI license check flag and dry run the execution on his/her local and server machines to ensure smooth execution. And make changes if there are any challenges. You can also contact our Success team to rectify the errors.

6. What could be the possible reasons for failure

The following reasons could cause execution failure

  • The user has no license
  • The user has an invalid or expired license
  • The user license is already in use
  • The license server is not whitelisted in the firewall or proxy server

7. What If I have a valid CLI execution license configured?

No action is needed. You are good with your setup.
