jenkins cannot find license server

14:40:13,205 DEBUG [LicenseManagerServiceImpl] Trying to initialize license for SoapUI NG
14:40:13,207 DEBUG [LicenseManagerServiceImpl] No license found for SoapUI NG

I am getting the following error when running test runner  in Jenkins via command line

I have looked and tried to do what the following thread said but no success!



  • Working with support for past two weeks.

    finally we managed to get this resolved.

    Awesome Steven helped me

    The solution was to add environment variables in Jenkins to point to my profile.

    The issue was Jenkins running as local and license is under my profile.

    So they were on two different profiles and would always show exceptions when trying to check out the floating license.


    In case of floating licenses with one activation

    Note when running Jenkins CI ensure that you do not have READY API running

    otherwise you wont be able to check out the license.

    I recall you made a post a few weeks ago asking about a floating license server. Did you get one set up and purchase a floating license pool for the server?

      The issue with floating license was IP had changed but we got that resolved

      Also I have test running successfully using READY API

      Even when I use Silk central test run fine.

      but when using jenkins and trying to run the testrunner

      There are issues finding or registering the license

      I even did a -l option and pointed to the IP for the floating license but no success.


      Tanya just to keep you informed, Support has been very quick very impressive! I am working with support so lets how we can get his resolved.
