B.19. Adding Floating Seats

You can add floating seats to an existing floating license to increase the number of users available. Adding additional seats to an existing floating license may affect its maintenance expiration date.
  1. Log in to the Intel® FPGA Self-Service Licensing Center.
  2. On the menu bar, click Licenses > All Licenses.
  3. Click the license name for which you want to add or remove a licensed user. License details page displays.
  4. On the drop-down menu in the Actions bar, click Merge Seats.
  5. Enter the number of seats to add.
  6. Select the license that you want to merge these seats into.
  7. Click Save.
When you add additional seats to an existing floating license, the new maintenance subscription term of the floating license is calculated by adding the total number of maintenance months for the existing and new seats, and then dividing by the total number of seats. Any partial number is rounded up to the nearest whole number.

Floating License Example

If you have an existing floating license with ten seats that expires in five months and you purchase two additional seats, your updated floating license maintenance subscription might expire in seven months for all twelve seats.
