License enforcement for commercial plugins


Does the JetBrains platform provide any tool to help enforcing the license in commercial plugins, just like you do for commercial IDEs (IDEA ultimate)? For example, to enforce that a single license is not used by more than 1 developer or that the user has obtained the proper key to unlock the plug-in functionality.

In the case I have to roll out my own, it would be truly appreciated that you could please provide any hints/suggestions on things to be aware of when implementing such tool.

Many thanks in advance,

There is no licensing/enforcing functionality for 3rd party plugins in IntelliJ Platform.

There are a few OSS as well as commercial licensing toolkits which you're free to choose from.
