This topic is about how to view your current licensing status on Security Analytics.
This helps the user to understand the current status of their licenses.
Each Security Analytics server is a license server providing capabilities to entitle services connected to it. To make entitlements available for licensing services, the entitlements must be downloaded and mapped to the Local License Server (LLS) on the Security Analytics server.
View Current License Status
To view the current license status of individual services connected to the Security Analytics server:
- In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.
In the Service grid, each service connected to the Security Analytics is listed. Part of the information is whether the service is licensed.
Note: If no services are listed, you need to add services before continuing.
- To view additional information about a service license, hover over the icon in the Licensed column.
The information displayed depends on the type of license. For a permanent license, the following information is displayed: service ID and type of license. For a license with an expiration date, the following information is displayed: service ID, type of license, expiration date, days licensed, and days remaining.
- To display the current license status, in the Security Analytics menu, select Licensing from the panel in the System grid. The License status for the selected services changes to green (licensed), yellow (approaching expiration), or red (license expired), depending upon the current license status. The services that you licensed are counted and the quantity is subtracted from the Available quantity in the Administration System view > Licensing panel.
Note: If licensing a hybrid system, which has a Concentrator and Decoder on the same appliance, license each component separately. Reporting Engine, Log Collector, IPDB Extractor, Warehouse Connector, Incident Management, and Workbench do not require a license.
