Issue

When attempting to authorize a PGP Command Line license using the pgp --license-authorize command for a license which does not have organization name, the license fails to authorize. When authorizing a PGP Command Line licensed the following options are required when executing the command:

Required

--license-name <Name> Where <Name> is your name or a descriptive name.
--license-organization <Org> Where <Org> is the name of your company.
--license-number <Number> Where <Number> is a valid license number.

Optional

--license-email Where <EmailAddress> is a valid email address, generally the email address of the PGP Command Line administrator.

Example

pgp --license-authorize --license-name "Alice Cameron" --license-organization "Example Corporation" --license-number "aaaaa-bbbbb-ccccc-ddddd-eeeee-fff" --license-email "acameron@example.com"


Solution




Resolution(s)

When the --license-organization is blank the --license-organization section of the command must include a space within the quotation marks e.g. " ". If the command does not include a space, the license authorization will fail.

Example

pgp --license-authorize --license-name "Alice Cameron" --license-organization " " --license-number "aaaaa-bbbbb-ccccc-ddddd-eeeee-fff" --license-email "acameron@example.com"
