Starting with Paragon Insights Release 4.3.0, when you navigate to the License Management page, a warning message asking you to add a tier-based license or upgrade to the new license key format might be displayed.

  • If no licenses are added, you must obtain a license key from the Juniper Agile Licensing Portal and add it to the License Management page.

  • If licenses are added but the license key format is not compatible with the Paragon Insights software version that you are currently using, you must generate a new license key.

    To generate a new license key in the compatible format:

    1. Login to Juniper Agile Licensing Portal.

    2. Revoke the existing license.

      A new license key is generated.

      Note

      After you download the newly generated license key file, you must remove eight lines starting from Issue Date through License Key from the file.

    3. Activate the new license key that is compatible with the software version you’re running. Select the software version during the activation process. For more information, see the FAQ section in the Juniper Agile Licensing Portal.

    4. Add the new license key to the License Management page. See Add a Paragon Insights License.
