Licensing IronPDF for Python Scripts

How to Get a License Key

Adding an IronPDF license key allows you to deploy your project live without restrictions or watermarks.

You can buy a license here or sign up for a free 30 day trial key here.

Step 1: Add IronPDF as a Dependency in Your Python Project

To integrate the IronPDF library into your Python project, you must install it as a dependency using the widely used Python package management tool, pip. Open the terminal and execute the following command:

 pip install ironpdf

This will install the specified version of IronPDF in your project, making it accessible for import.

Please note
IronPDF Python relies on IronPDF .NET library, specifically .NET 6.0, as its underlying technology. Therefore, it is necessary to have the .NET 6.0 SDK installed on your machine in order to use IronPDF Python.

Step 2: Apply Your License Key

Next, you need to apply your license key or trial key by setting the LicenseKey attribute at the beginning of your Python script, before utilizing IronPDF.

# Apply your license key
License.LicenseKey = "IRONPDF-MYLICENSE-KEY-1EF01"

Step 3: Validate Your License Key

Verify the Installed License Key

To verify whether the license key has been applied correctly, you can check the IsLicensed attribute of the License module. Use the following code snippet:

# Check if the license key has been applied
is_licensed = License.IsLicensed

Validate the License Key

To ensure the validity of your license or trial key, you can use the following code snippet:

# Check if a given license key string is valid
is_valid = License.IsValidLicense("IRONPDF-MYLICENSE-KEY-1EF01")

If the return value is True, it means the key is valid, and you can proceed with using IronPDF. However, if the return value is False, it indicates that the key is invalid

Please note
After adding a license, it is essential to clean and republish your application to ensure a smooth deployment process and avoid any potential mistakes.
