Selecting Items for Expiration Notification

You can choose which items you want to be notified about so that you only receive notifications for those items that concern you.

Spectrum Technology Platform can send an email notification when a license, database, or software component is about to expire. This allows you to take the necessary action to ensure that your business processes are not disrupted by an expiration. Some of the components that have expiration dates include:

  • Licenses
    • Email notifications are not available for transaction-based licenses. If you are approaching the maximum number of transactions for a license, a message appears in the system log in Spectrum Management Console.
    • When you log in as admin in Spectrum Spatial Manager, and the license expiry date falls inside the license expiration range set in Spectrum Management Console, a warning message is displayed as: Spatial License will expire in <n> days.
  • Databases, such as U.S. postal databases used for CASS processing
  • Certain software components, such as the engine used to validate U.S. addresses in Spectrum Universal Addressing.
Tip: To view the items that have expiration dates, open Spectrum Management Console and go to System > Licensing and Expiration.
  1. Open Spectrum Management Console.
  2. Go to System > Licensing and Expiration.
  3. To receive an expiration notification email for an item, check the box in the Send Notification column.
    If you want to be notified earlier or later than the default, specify the number of days in advance of the expiration that you want to be notified.
