Development Licenses


PSPDFKit Server has been deprecated and replaced by PSPDFKit Document Engine. All PSPDFKit Server and PSPDFKit for Web Server-Backed licenses will work as before and be supported until 15 May 2024 (we will contact you about license migration). To start using Document Engine, refer to the migration guide. With Document Engine, you’ll have access to robust new capabilities (read the blog for more information).

PSPDFKit for Web and PSPDFKit Server can be activated with a production or development key.

When running PSPDFKit Server as part of your development environment, QA, or staging deployment, you must use a development key as opposed to a production key.

A development key does not restrict the allowed Origin, which allows you to test and develop conveniently.

You can get the development key from the PSPDFKit Portal:

PSPDFKit Server Dashboard

If you run PSPDFKit Standalone, request a license key in the PSPDFKit Portal via the Request License Key for Web Beta Usage button. Learn more about Licenses here
