License Manager: Administrator can release a blocked floating license

Hi all,
I want to know how I or our administrator can unlock a floating license via the Ranorex License Manager?

Situation:
•User A starts Ranorex Studio using one Floating license
•User A leaves his Computer (while Ranorex Studio is running) and goes home
•User B wants to start Ranorex Studio using the Floating license which is blocked by User A

Requirement:
•certain persons (i.e. Administrator) with access to lic manager can close active connections manually

Goal:
•set locked floating license free manually via license manager

Thanks.
Niko

        I need also this feature...

        This feature would be great. I consistently run into issue where Studio doesn't release the license after shutting down. I usually resort to opening and closing Studio again, waiting over 5 minutes after Studio closes and/or reboot the system running the license server.

        We have 2 machines which are connecting license manager, but we are not able to locate them. While IT is trying to find those machines, I want to disable block those machines.

        But keep in mind, if a person goes home and leaves Ranorex open he may run an overnight test.
        In this case a forced license disconnect would perhaps destroy the test.
