Student license, can't activate product Follow
I just applied for a student's license, got to the " JetBrains Product Pack for Students " page.
I see the text saying "After downloading and installing the software, simply run it and follow the on-screen prompts to sign in with your JetBrains Account. You don't need a license key."
But when i download WebStorm, unpack and run (I'm using ubuntu 12.04 LTS) i never saw any instructions on how to activate the product for my account, and if i accept the 30-day trial i can't find any place where to sign in with my account or anything similar...
Is this normal? I didn't get any extra emails in my university's account saying what to do to activate my account on the IDE.

I have no clue about student licenses but ...
1) You can register product by going to "Help | Register" .. or "Register" from Welcome screen.
2) There you should pick "JetBrains Account" option
3) Before that -- login to JetBrains account : https://account.jetbrains.com/ and check for the licenses that you have got there. Possibly you will have to click a link to generate SN/License first
If still nothing: please post screenshots and IDE version (in case if you are using old version which does not have JB Account activation option)
I want to use WebStorm, it seems it doesn't have the "jetbrains accoun" option when i open the Register dialog :/
I'm using the latets stable version, maybe i should try a beta for the next? is that available?
Thank you for your suggestion!
Lol WebStorm 9 beta doesn't even have the registration option...
I'm too poor to pay for the full license haha and this is the only IDE i need from jetbrains...
I guess i'm bad luck brian...
anyway, thanks for your help!
v9 is not a proper release yet -- still EAP stage (well, beta as of now).
Each EAP version have their own 30-days license -- which means that anyone can use it
Once v9 final will be officially released, the registration option will be available again.
At the point you accepted the 30 day trial, there was another option that should have been chosen instead, I believe. If I remember, there were 3 options, and the last one was what you wanted.
I looked carefully, at least for webstorm there wasn't any other options than 30 day trial and register with key
I've got the same problem. I'm using a Windows 7 machine and Webstorm 8.0.5.
After the installation process I've got following possibilites to activate the product (see attachment license activation.png):
via license key or license server.
I tried the older version 7.0.3 also, same there.
Any clue how to fix this? If additional infos are needed, just say something.
In my account the student license is there and I installed it twice already in the past without any problems.
Sorry -- have no clue why you do not see it.
This is what I see when installing and running WeStorm v8.0.5 on Windows 7 x64 SP1 running in Virtual Machine under VMware Workstation (this Windows is clean: only few basic programs are installed -- it knows nothing about any previous JB products).
Once again: have no clue what is required to have this option showing up.
My only ideas:
My thouhgs: JetBrains Account option requires internet access -- if it cannot connect to required host (likely over HTTPS) .. then it may not show this option as available.
In any case: please check what your "idea.log" file contains
Guys i found how to do it, go to the proxy settings and set it to automatic...
Well it seems that if you are working behind a proxy, the account authentication doesn't work, so you need to configure that...
It worked for me just with automatic, try other configurations if you want.
You are right, I'm sitting behind a proxy. If I change it to automatic I have no webaccess. Is there any possibility to get webstorm to use the proxy for the authentification process?
I also configured the proxy in the settings section now but this hasn't any influence in the activation screen...
error Message from idea.log is
Seems to be: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-130598 .
Сheck that <path_to_java>/lib/security/cacerts is not empty.
Log out and re-login. This worked for me!
