Create a license type

This article applies to:

All licenses in Avalara License Management must have a license type. As a manager or administrator, you can create custom naming conventions for license types instead of using the standard names in the application.  

Before you begin

To add a custom license type, you must create a new license type and then associate it with the system license type. This association is essential because this link enables us to provide you with additional license data like authority information, renewal information, and so on. 


  1. From the Avalara License Management home page, select the drop-down arrow on the navigation bar, and then select Setup.
  2. Go to Customize > License types.  
  3. Select New license type. 
  4. Enter a custom license type name. 
  5. Search and select the system license type you want to associate with the custom license type. 
  6. Select Save

When users create a new license from the License tab, they can select a custom license type.
