Horizon Service Control Plane – Where’s my License Key?


You might be asking right now: I did move to Horizon Subscription license and I’m missing my licenses when I access MyVMware portal. So, where’s my license key?

Different from previous licenses you’ve acquired from VMware in the past, within this service you don’t receive a license to be used like a perpetual configuration way. The picture below shows how you’ll receive an email from VMware Horizon Service only informing that your account has been created into Horizon Service Control Plane and the license is associated within your subscription term period.
