This topic describes how to view your current licensing status on NetWitness Suite.


Each NetWitness 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 NetWitness Server.

View Current License Status

To view the current license status of individual services connected to the NetWitness Server:

  1. Go to ADMIN> System.

    In the Service grid, each service connected to the NetWitness Suite 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.

  2. 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.

      In case of trial license the information is displayed in formats based on usage.
      Trial license without data usage

    • For trial license with zero usage of the Log Decoder or Decoder, the following information is displayed: Service ID and Type.

      Trail license with data usage

    • For a license with an expiration date, the following information is displayed: service ID, type of license, expiration date, days licensed, and days remaining.
      License information is displayed.

  3. To display the current license status, in the main 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 ADMIN > 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, Warehouse Connector, Respond Server, Investigate Server, Admin Server, Security Server, Config Server, Orchestration Server and Workbench do not require a license.
