This topic describes how licensing of appliances and services is implemented in NetWitness Platform. The entitlement capability leverages myRSA (https://my.rsa.com/) as the mechanism for entitlement delivery.
Entitlements Created and Available to Customer.
After a customer order is processed, the entitlements (licenses) become available in myRSA. The entitlements are tied to an individual account.
Register NetWitness Server on myRSA and Map Entitlements to the Local License Server (LLS).
Synchronize the Server and Download Mapped Entitlements.
After the synchronization, entitlements that were mapped to the Local License Server on the NetWitness Platform appliance are synchronized, but the entitlements have not been used in any way. For example, if you have purchased 10 Decoders and 10 Concentrators, 10 of 10 Decoder entitlements and 10 of 10 Concentrator entitlements would be available on the NetWitness Server.
