Connected Deployment Mode

NOTE   End of Development ("EoD") for the Connected Deployment Mode
Connected deployment mode has reached the End of Development ("EoD"). Instead, we recommend the use of the Connected (Cloud LM) mode.

The Connected mode was introduced in the Sentinel RMS v9.0 for licensing applications that are hosted in the cloud or are always connected to the cloud. The entitlements to support the Connected mode are created using the Connected License Model in Sentinel EMS.

The Java and .NET libraries and the web services required for the Connected deployment mode are included in the SCL Add-on package. However, starting with the 10.0 release, these are located in the legacy directory. With the introduction of the Connected (Cloud LM) deployment mode, the Connected mode continues to be supported. Nevertheless, you should consider using the Connected (Cloud LM) mode for new implementations.
