In vSphere, a license holds a license key for a product. You can view the associated license key for every license.


  • To view and manage licenses in the vSphere 6.0 environment, you must have the Global > Licenses privilege on the vCenter Server system, where the vSphere Web Client runs.


  1. In the vSphere Web Client, select Administration, and under Licensing, select Licenses.
  2. Select the Licenses tab.
  3. In the table, select a license.
  4. Click View License Key.
