This topic provides instructions for configuring notification settings for the Local License Server (LLS). If you wish to receive alerts about the approaching license expiration date you can configure NetWitness Platform to send notifications. You can receive notification by email, syslog and SNMP. The notification can also be viewed during system log on and also in the Notification Tray. You can also specify the number of days before expiration as a threshold for notification.
To configure the NetWitness Platform notification:
- Log on to NetWitness Platform, and go to ADMIN > System.
- Select Licensing in the options panel.
Select the Settings tab.
Select each of the methods for NetWitness Platform to use when sending a notification about the license nearing its expiration date. You can select none or all.
- To receive a notification at log on, select Login and specify the number of days before the license expires that you want to receive notification in the Login Window Threshold field.
- To receive a notification in the Notifications tray, select Notification Tray and specify the number of days before the license expires that you want to receive notification in the Notification Tray Threshold field.
