MapTiler Server in an offline environment
In case you are not able to perform the preferred way of license activation - the online process - you have to undergo the offline activation. However, it presents a few challenges. Let's take a closer look at them now.
The first of them is the fact that offline activation DOES NOT WORK in docker installations. To make it work, you should insert your license key, generate an activation request, download the request file, and send it to MapTiler Support for verification. Once you receive the activation response file, please upload it to your MapTiler Server instance and activate it.
A renewal request can be generated by pressing the "RENEW" button. It shall be processed the same way as the previously described activation request file. Once the offline activation request is correctly generated, the page "/admin/settings/license" will display an offline activation UI (you can skip back to online via link).

Challenges of MapTiler Server in VM or Docker
