Using licence (paying) on a on-premise OpenERP 7 installation

It's not clear to me how I should configure my on-premise OpenERP 7 installation to use a 10-user licence I bought recently.

I've got a referral code, but, if not mistaken, this is not supposed to be configured on the server itself.

First hints given on twitter are that I should allow external authentification (OAuth) so that I can use OpenERP.com accounts. This seems OK but at the moment there are still some issues :

1/ For this configuration to work, it seems I need to allow, on the portal configuration, external users to connect (using a template, here "Template user") : this allows anyone to create accounts on my server (?) 2/ I can't see really where I can link users on my server with OpenERP. com accounts

I wonder if the solution is to allow temporally external accounts creation, then have my 10 users connect once on my server using OpenERP.com accounts, and then disable again external accounts creation to prevent unknown users to come on my server (?).

Any hints/feedback welcome !

What seems to be working :

  1. On my instance (on-premise) :

    -> Configuration / General parameters

    -> Portal access / Allow external users to connect

    -> AND Authentification / User external identification (Google, Facebook, ...)

    (Remember to apply)

  2. Log in OpenERP.com with the desired user

  3. Then connect to the on-premise instance : the user is locally created

  4. When every users are created using this way, change the local configuration to disable « Allow extern users to connect »

To create the users: Menus to use: More (last right menu top line of screen)

then configuration; then - on the left pane, go down to Users;

then create

Sorry but I don't see how this makes the link between the http://OpenERP.com accounts (paying licence) and my on-premise instance (?)
