Question about "Expired Subscription" in DSS

Postby LCStech » Mon Aug 19, 2013 11:28 am

Hello Community,

I have a few questions about a feature in DSS. I have read through the online documentation and have not been able to find the answer...

1. Can someone explain to me the option about checking for EXPIRED Subscription Status.

2. How would I be able to make a subscription expired?

3. The text mentions having the "check for EXPIRED" under dCloud options.... Where are those options as I dont see any place labeled "dCloud options"

Thank you in advance for the explanation.

[EDIT]

there isn't a subscription mgmt option so to speak, but you can 'expire' or more appropriately 'disable' certain features or even uninstall the app remotely (all of which would take place the next time the app does a successful config update.)

EDIT to add: actually this check is done automatically now during installation - the config option was removed.. by 'expired' I mean you have chosen to remotely uninstall the app previously. I need to change this terminology. The point is to prevent someone who has a custom installer from just reinstalling the app if you don't want them to (because you previously forced an uninstall.)

Cool,

So if I understand correctly, if I choose "Uninstall App Permanently", the next time DSS runs, updates its config, etc.. it will se this and auto uninstall?
