Transfer licenses between IntuiFace accounts

The following capability is only available to those in possession of at least one perpetual or annual Composer Enterprise license.

    With account-to-account license transfers, IntuiFace users can either temporarily or - in select circumstances - permanently move licenses from their own account to their own secondary accounts or to any primary account. (For more about primary and secondary accounts, see this article.) Advantages include:

    • Simplifying license management when working on multiple projects at the same time.
    • "Selling" perpetual IntuiFace licenses, using a permanent license transfer to furnish a client with licenses and - for Composer - payment responsibility for Maintenance, Support and Update (MSU) entitlement.

    NOTE: For instructions about transferring licenses between devices, see this article

    Transferring Licenses

    For any IntuiFace account in possession of at least one annual or perpetual Composer license, the License Key column of the License Dashboard contains - for every license, including Composer Pro - a Transfer license option.

    Selection of this link will open a dialog box in which you must specify the duration of the license transfer and the email address of the IntuiFace account to which the transfer will be made.

    • If transferring a subscription license: Only a temporary transfer is possible
    • If transferring a perpetual license: Both temporary and permanent transfers are possible

    The following image shows what one would see when attempting to transfer a perpetual license.

    Make the appropriate selection, click the Transfer button, then confirm your selection.

    Once the license is transferred, the License Key column of the License Dashboard will identify the account to which the license has been transferred. The "Status" column will contain the word Loaned.


    Retrieving Temporarily Transferred Licenses

    Temporarily transferred licenses can be retrieved. To do so, click the Bring license back option in the License Key column of the License Dashboard.


    Confirm your selection and the license will be retrieved when it is next available. The loaned license becomes available for retrieval when the user either closes Composer/Player or logs out.


    1. Only those in possession of at least one annual or under-MSU perpetual Enterprise Edition license of Composer can transfer licenses.
      • Annual Composer Enterprise licenses purchased using the academic discount only have the ability to transfer Player licenses to other accounts. Composer licenses cannot be transferred.
    2. Any license of any type can be transferred, including individual Player for iPad and Player for Android licenses from within a 10 license pack.
    3. Licenses already in use on a PC, iPad, Android tablet or Samsung SSP - i.e. if their "Status" is In use or Retained - cannot be transferred. Only licenses with the "Status" of Available can be transferred. Available licenses are currently unused.
    4. There is no limit to the number of times a license can be transferred to different IntuiFace accounts and then retrieved.
    5. Expired subscription licenses and temporarily transferred perpetual licenses whose Maintenance, Support and Update (MSU) entitlement has expired are automatically retrieved.
    6. Loaned licenses cannot be transferred by the IntuiFace account to which those licenses were loaned.
    7. Device-to-device license transfer counts are unaffected by account-to-account license transfers. For example, an annual Composer Enterprise license with 4 device-to-device transfers remaining will retain entitlement to all 4 after transfer to a new IntuiFace account.

    Payment Responsibilities

    • Responsibility for the payment of a perpetual Composer's Maintenance, Support and Update (MSU) entitlement fee depends on the type of transfer. For temporary transfers, the original purchaser of the perpetual Composer license retains MSU responsibility. For permanent transfers, the destination account takes ownership of MSU responsibility.
    • Responsibility for the renewal of temporarily transferred subscription licenses belongs to the original purchaser. The destination IntuiFace account never has payment responsibility for loaned subscription licenses.
