I would like to know what the 12-digit code represents in my service.txt file of the License Manager. I am using my Portal for ArcGIS as a licensing portal for my ArcGIS Pro.


I noticed that in the official documentation the first line should be like:

SERVER this_host ANY 27004


But when I open my service.txt file, I see something like that (I changed the number as I don’t know if it’s of any significance):

SERVER this_host A12345678BC9 27004


As I understand, it has something to do with using your Portal as a licencing portal for ArcGIS Pro, but I would like to know what exactly.
