User ID

User ID is an optional identification that allows software developers to identify each individual Key of the distributed applications. That is, User ID allows you to identify each individual user of the protected application. User ID is needed when using the Remote Key Update Broadcast (RKUB) feature. When each user is assigned a User ID, you can simply broadcast a single update file that specifies Key Properties for each user. User ID is also used in the Activation Server solution. When adding a new activation account, a User ID is randomly generated and is recorded in the database. This allows Activation Manager to remotely manage licensing the protected application. If you use the KeyCheck API, User ID may be used for other purposes as you wish. User ID is 32 bits long, with its value ranging from one to 231.
