Obtaining your License
Follow the steps below to obtain a Business or Business Pro license.
- For the Gravio Hub 2, open the Configuration Manager under the Hub2’s IP address and port 8080, and go to the Preferences tab to obtain a license.
- For HubKit (= your installation on your local Windows or Mac computer), open the configuration menu from the system tray or system menu respectively and click on the “Initial Setup” option to open your browser in the Configuration Manager.
For details on how to initially setup your Gravio Hub 2 configuration manager, please refer to these guides on
- how to set up your Gravio Hub 2.
- or how to set initialize and set up Gravio HubKit on Windows, macOS, Linux AMD64 or Linux ARM64
Navigate to your Configuration manager and click on the “Obtain a License” button. Note, your machine needs to be connected to the internet to obtain a license, because the license file will be retrieved from Asteria’s central customer database.
Once you click the button, this popup will appear:
Enter the account information you used to sign up with Gravio.com online.
You will see the licenses available to you depending on your contract.
Select and obtain the Node License among the licenses displayed to deploy a node license to your machine.
Request Gravio Cloud Server
Once you get the license, reload your browser. You will subsequently see a button to request the installation of a Gravio Cloud server under the section “Node Registration to the Gravio Coordinator”. If you have a Gravio Coordinator, you can register your nodes with your Gravio Coordinator in this section by entering the IP address of the Coordinator. However, if you don’t have a Gravio Coordinator yet, you can request one to be set up by pressing the button “Request to establish a Gravio Cloud Server”. This will create a Gravio Coordinator and main instance on our cloud infrastructure.
Clicking on the Request button will display a panel where you can enter the necessary information for the request. An Asteria team member will review the information, and once your request is accepted, send an email to your registered email address to confirm whether your server has been set up or not.
Start using Gravio Cloud server
Once the server provision is complete, an email will be sent to you with the server information. Once you have received the email confirming that your server has been provisioned, you can access the your console by accessing the domain
<yoursubdomain>.gravio.cloud that you have registered.
Using Gravio Studio with your Gravio Coordinator
Once your Gravio Coordinator is running, you can use it to authenticate your users. For that, you will have to tell Gravio Studio (which you can download from your app store) to use your Gravio Coordinator for authentication. When you start Gravio Studio, in the below screen pick “Login with Gravio Coordinator” at the bottom right of the screen.
Fill in the your Gravio Coordinator URL which is
<yoursubdomain>.gravio.cloud and the login details you have picked in the screen above. This will be your first and main user of your Gravio Coordinator. In the web interface of your Gravio Coordinator under
<yoursubdomain>.gravio.cloud , you can now also add or edit your other Gravio users for authentication. They will be need to use log in to Gravio Studio via the Gravio Coordinator, too.
As you can see, using this type of infrastructure allows you to fully control your user base and back-end of the system yourself. You do not need to rely on Asteria’s back end other than to distribute your license keys and manage your subscription level. This is how Gravio is different from most other Cloud, Edge and Node platforms.
