For the changes to your license be applied on your Sisense instance, please follow the instructions below on all the servers that use the updated license in question.
On each of your Sisense servers please do the following:
  1. Within the Windows menu, search for Sisense Activation, then right click 'Run as Administrator'
  2. Take note of the email address your account is set up under (you will need the password when you log back in)
  3. Sign out of your Sisense account
  4. Close Sisense Activation
  5. Stop and Restart the Sisense.Oxygen service by doing the following,
    • Open the Control Panel 
    • Administrative tools 
    • Services
    • Locate the Sisense.Oxygen service and right click and select Stop to stop it
    • Then, right click and select Start to start it
  6. Then reopen and log back in to Sisense Activation
  7. Verify that the account page reflects the license update change (if it is a license expiration extension, increase in number of users, etc).
    In this example, the license was extended by one year and the number of users was increased from 9 users to 20 users.
    You can also check additional license information in the Admin tab of your Sisense Web site: Admin tab > License Utilization
