Hi, I have added an additional activation onto your license - can you try this again and check to see if this now works for you?

HI Ben, Thanks for the additional activation on the license. I was able to activate it now. However just a quick query on how many activations we can perform for a single user license as i keep using different VMs for testing. Thanks

Hi, For Burp Suite Professional licenses the activations are monitored over time, so you will have a number of activations based on your previous usage, and as the year progresses additional activations will be made available to account for the fact that you may need to reinstall/set up new environments. At any stage, we can provide additional activations if the activation limit is reached. The only other consideration with Burp Professional is that the licensing model is carried out on a per-user basis - with a user being defined as an individual person. You just need to ensure that your license covers the total number of individual people that are going to be using Burp i.e. your current one-user license would allow for one individual person to use Burp. If another user was required to use Burp within your organization then you would need to purchase an additional license for them to still be inline with our licensing terms.
